Rug cleaner

I need a reasonably priced rug cleaner who offers pick up and drop off service. So far, the holidays have not been kind to my 8x10. Any recommendations?

  • North Center Rug Cleaner on 3700 block of Lincoln. Great work, fair prices, and will arrange pick up and drop off.

  • I second that. They did a great job on 3 of my area rugs.

  • I'll go third on North Center. Reasonable prices quality service.

Free easel

Does anyone want an easel? My boyfriend's parents brought it and he says it's not designed right and that he doesn't have room for it. I think if someone handy looked at it they could make it work fine. It's adjustable and tall. In the picture it's at a setting around 6 ft tall. You have to be able to pick it up

Tavern at Crown Liquors

They opened the tavern at Crown Liquors at Diversey, Kimball and Milwaukee next to Dante's a week or so ago. The place is really cute inside. So nice to have that addition to the neighborhood.

Lost Keys

Lost my keys on Sawyer somewhere between Milwaukee and George just now. Has a skull and crossbones keychain, a blue carabiner, a white bottle opener, and numerous key passes (including Logan Square Fitness). Please keep your eye out for them as you walk around that area in the next few days! Message me here if you find them.

Note: please do not try and rob me; my building has like 80 security cameras. It will not go well.

    Woohoo! Lost keys found! Yay to having super nice neighbors!

Moving to N. Gresham, Avondale

I am thinking about purchasing a home on N Gresham and want to get some opinions on the block. I am 29, recently married and may be starting a family soon. Is this a good neighborhood for a young family?

  • I moved to Avondale with my family of 3 over a years ago ,just north of Belmont blue line, my son goes to daycare off Gresham. Very neighborly, kids playing on street, what a Chicago neighborhood should be like. Maybe join the Avondale neighborhood association on fb, get an idea...

    I moved to Avondale with my family of 3 over a years ago ,just north of Belmont blue line, my son goes to daycare off Gresham. Very neighborly, kids playing on street, what a Chicago neighborhood should be like. Maybe join the Avondale neighborhood association on fb, get an idea of what is going on. I did alot of reading up before I moved, not all attractive but I havn't regretted it. Another thing to consider when you do start a family is that there are actually many affordable daycare options in that area. Good luck

    Used to live over there about three years ago on Gresham nearer to milwaukee. Felt fairly safe except certain times walking my dog early in the AM (I had an overnight job that got me home between 530-6am) would get lots of street harassment in the area I noticed. Even bundled up in the winter.

Found your pittie. Did you find my wallet?

So rushing home to pick up kid from daycare and I dropped my wallet on the train at Logan Square. Black Kate Spade, all my credit cards, Ventra, DL inside. And when I got to my house there was a friendly collared brown pittie dancing in front of my gate. I let him in so he doesn't get hit by a car or picked up by an unsavory type. Can the karma police just figure this out and return our respective treasured belongings?

  • Used to be 'America's Dog'...war dog of WW1 and in the 30's, 'nanny dog' as people would have this dog as a 'baby sitter' for their kids if they left the house to shop.
    They 'love their people' and will do anything for them

  • God Bless You and all the "lil Pitties"

Lost tuxedo cat

My friend lost his tuxedo tabby. He lives in Roscoe Village. The cat is the sweetest, friendliest thing. "Keido" was his buddy and friend, especially since he's been widowed. The cat is without a collar (unfortunately), he is big boned, and loves his owner so much, I can't imagine he left willingly. Please contact me if you see a cat that resembles "Keido". Thanks so much for reading.

Lost kitty

My indoor cat, named Animal, escaped sometime yesterday afternoon/evening. He is microchipped but does not have a collar. He does not hear well so we are concerned about his ability to survive outside. He has blue eyes and his fur is a grey/lilac tabby pattern with white underbelly and feet. He is a very friendly cat but can be skittish at times.

He is the best with our toddler. Please keep your eyes out for him today!

We just put a 2- drawer night stand in the alley off Sawyer and Waveland. Nothing wrong with it- come pick it up!

Fantastic local photographer!

A few weeks ago, I asked EB about recommendations for a local photographer. There were numerous suggestions and, for many reasons, I chose Jennifer Shaffer off Fullerton and Milwaukee. We had a wonderful session this morning! My clan is a handful and she was amazing with my three year and six month old boys. Not only can she handle kids, but it was clear that she is a skilled, knowledgeable and talented photographer. As the holidays draw near, I highly recommend Jennifer for your family pictures.

  • I am feeling the love! Thank you for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful family! Milli - stay tuned, I am sending you previews soon!

  • another reason why we need a list of service providers who live in the neighborhood.

Great Electrician in Logan

I just had a porch light installed and a ceiling light installed where there were no lights before. I got two quotes, one from Urban Power at $1700 (for a five hour two person job!) and one from Bright Sparks at $410. Guess who I chose? We actually almost got busted because the city inspector was investigating something next door, but he popped his head in and saw the work was to code and said because "times were tough" he'd...

I just had a porch light installed and a ceiling light installed where there were no lights before. I got two quotes, one from Urban Power at $1700 (for a five hour two person job!) and one from Bright Sparks at $410. Guess who I chose? We actually almost got busted because the city inspector was investigating something next door, but he popped his head in and saw the work was to code and said because "times were tough" he'd let it slide. Minimal wall damage (no cuts in my ceiling!) and cleaned up well after the job was done. I have no relation to the company, found them on Yelp and used them because they were baseda few blocks from me. Highly recommend Alex and his crew.

  • G

    Wow if you think those are great prices, I could only imagine what you would think of the electrician I hire for $25/hour.

  • Allison Logan lawyer & homeowner

    My last guy was $15/hour but sadly moved away. Still, $410 for the equivalent of 9 man hours plus materials is more than reasonable in my book.

Anyone know Juan LLapa?

This morning I found a state ID w/ a bunch of business cards (most in Spanish) -- either fell out of a pocket or tossed out of a wallet. Further down the block I also found his RTA ventra card. Found these on the 3000 block of Spaulding, but ID address has him 49XX St. Louis. PLease PM me -- I will be turning them over to Liz at the 14th District CAPS office.

  • Loulu Me

    Thanks but if you can't find him than yes turn it all in to your local police station. Thanks for trying!

  • This is a good idea as, who knows, he could have been a crime victim whose wallet was stolen.
