Decent new furniture stores in Chicago

I will be purchasing quite a few large pieces of furniture soon, so I've been doing a bit of research on stores in Chicago, which is making me depressed. Who is your go-to store for sofas, beds, dining tables and the like in Chicago that are reputable, furniture is affordable without being made out of plywood, and offer delivery options you can count on? I also plan on buying as many used items as I can, but I prefer to buy sofas and beds new.

  • Wazzup not available

    @andrew - all my furniture is from Walter E Smythe - you get what you pay for....top design and quality that you and your guests will recognize and appreciate.I can attest to the quality and the admiration and envy of my guests when they enter my home.

  • Roys is definently the place to go. I bought my first round of chair and sofa and just bought my second set. Great selection and pricing. Highly recommend.

A new consignment store on Bryn Mawr?

Hi everybody, is there a consignment store on Bryn Mawr and the L stop? Name and info please thanks.

  • Wazzup not available

    check the resale boutique on Broadway in Edgewater across from Walgreen - as one would expect in Edgewater - only first class clothing is handled there - but if your stuff is first class - than this is the place to go. on the West side of the street

Quickly finding missing vulnerable people

Lately, I've seen several posts and articles about missing vulnerable elderly and mentally ill people. I'm curious; is there a wearable tracking device? Maybe something lightweight and waterproof that they'd wear around their necks or wrists that would give their GPS coordinates? Activated cell phones can be tracked this way and now there's all sorts of wearable tech these days, likes smartwatches.

Safety concern - walk dont walk sign out

The city replaced the controller box for lights at Sheridan and Rosemont. In their efficient manner they did not hook up the "walk don't walk" sign,. For the safety of pedestrians and students this needs to be fixed - and the supervisor/inspector needs to be reprimanded. Sloppy workmanship - no pride of ownership is evident for all to see. Disappointing workman performance.

    Wazzup, anytime anyone posts ANYTHING here, even if it's not remotely controversial, they risk an avalanche of snarky response. A recent post with an obvious typo, and another about a marshmallow business were not spared the usual herd of trolls that pop out to attack with either their expertise on all matters, or just to flash their mean spirited wit. One can't help but imagine who these people are and what motivates them. You can almost hear and see them frantically tapping at their lap tops in semi darkness before the sun has even risen and most of humanity still sleeps.The image that comes to mind is only amusing for a moment before it becomes just sad. Let's all allow, even praise and encourage their hobby. Feed the trolls! After all, here in Rogers Park, we should take care of or own.

  • Correction. OUR own. I'm sure my meaning was obvious but I didn't want to leave food out for the trolls just yet. They've been ferociously gorging as it is.

Nanny or Childcare for Infant

Hello All -

We are looking for childcare for our infant in Edgewater beginning in the fall (September). We have been considering a nanny, nanny share or a daycare. Any advice and/or referrals would be welcome! Our baby will be 4 months old in September.

We have looked at Ladybug and friends on Broadway and really liked the daycare, but are unsure since we're new parents.

Thanks,
RJ + Jeff

  • Rob

    "sounds like an ideal responsibility for Grandma - infants should be with family."

    Gee, why didn't they think of that?!?

    @Rob - i wondered about that too - thanks for re-enforcing my point.

    In agreement. I love B&N - great product, great staff. And I'm sad that they're not in the neighborhood anymore. But now the story is becoming clearer that product+staff, plus lots of other positives that B&N has going for it, do not equate to a profitable business model the way it's currently drawn out. I am sure there are other possible business models, just depends on what's most important to the owners. I brainstorm new ways of doing business for a living... usually not in food/bev/retail, but that's expertise they bring (as well as their investors). While I wouldn't put money into the GoFundMe, I'd gladly spend an hour brainstorming with the owners for bargain rate of a chocolate brioche loaf.

  • Jeffrey Littleton Yes, I painted my own profile photo, its what I do

    I guess a better business model would have been to get the permits they got busted with not having?
    Another model would have been to keep one succesful shop instead of trying to expand to 2 bigger shops at the same time?

    What happened here? What happens when you do a 90% or better build -out in Chicago without a permit?
    Here is one thing...you have to pay to have what you paid to have constructed opened up, demolished, so the mechanical and electrical work can be inspected like it should have been. Then pay to have it reconstructed, and the fines and fees.

    That is what happened, they over-reached, took chances, got caught. Its a shame, great bakers, artists of baking really. I'm sure they will land on their feet somewhere somehow.
