Where is a consignment store for vintage items?

Hi there, I have a couple of vintage fashion items and am looking for a consignment store. Not a consignment store for modern brand name clothing. Do you know of one?

  • It's not a consignment store, but you might wish to try Tilly's at 5232 N Clark St. (773) 744-9566. If they are not interested in your items, they would likely know where you can take them.

  • Oops, it's just Tilly. No apostrophe.

  • thanks

    VIDEO: Wicker Park Robbery Video Provides Another Learning Moment
    The latest North Side robbery alert from Chicago Police focuses on three incidents reported Friday in Wicker Park. But everyone can learn by watching surveillance video of one of the hold-ups. One of the best ways to train your gut instinct is to learn how street criminals operate. Around 12:45 p.m.
    http://www.cwbchicago.com
  • This is good advice, because most of us don't notice cars coming and going into alleys. They got a good look at the robber, he's probably a teen from one of the highschools, and I guess one of the teachers or principals will recognize him.

    Shattered Globe's Five Mile Lake Explores Dreams and Despair in a Small Town
    The headlines are about major cities declining-in population, in industry, in jobs.

In Five Mile Lake, playwright Rachel Bonds tells the story of five...

LA underground punks No Age return from a five-year absence with a punishing new album for Drag City

Sat 1/20, 8 PM, Schubas, 3159 N. Southport, sold out, 18+

    LA underground punks No Age return from a five-year absence with a punishing new album for Drag City
    Five years can be a lifetime in the career of a postpunk band, but that's how long it's been since the LA duo No Age dropped a new record. Singer and guitarist Randy Randall and drummer Dean Spunt have finally broken their silence with the exuberant Snares Like a Haircut (Drag City), a maelstrom of fury and melody that sounds like it must be the product of more than two people.

    Hannah Read-the twentysomething Texan who records and performs wistful, intimate indie rock under the name Lomelda-isn't the first and won't be the last person to write a song about the long stretches of asphalt that criss-cross the country, but her "Interstate Vision" deserves to be counted among the best American road songs of all time.

    LA singer-songwriter Bedouine crafts weightless songs of grace, optimism, and wonder
    Bedouine is the moniker of singer-songwriter Azniv Korkejian, a woman of Armenian descent born in Syria and raised in Saudi Arabia before her family won a green-card lottery and moved to the U.S. The music on the eponymous debut she released last summer feels lighter than air.

DEAR ALL:
We have a situation. I have been specifically targeted for vandalism and it concerns me that it is related to the muggings of November 8th.
On January 4th at 9:52pm a car drove up and parked across the street from our house on Clarendon (exactly where the mugging and beating took place on November 8th). At 9:54:50pm a young man gets out of his car and walks down our street, at 9:55:45pm he returns to his car, at 9:57:02pm he gets back out of his car, heads straight to my classic 1997 Camaro parked in front of my house on Hutchinson, pulls out a large knife tool, and destroys the passenger side of my Camaro. I have it all on tape but unfortunately he was well covered with hoodie including his face, and the cameras could not pick up the license plate number.
I have a strong suspicion that this is in retaliation from my involvement of the muggings.
I am in contact with the lead detective on the muggings case to see how to proceed.
Let's keep an eye out please.

Breakfast/brunch suggestions for East Lakeview

I was so happy to find Horizon cafe after Melrose closed down last year for just a good, affordable breakfast with no frills. I was heartbroken to go out in the cold this morning for breakfast at Horizon to find it’s doors permanently closed.
Do any of you have good east Lakeview suggestions for breakfast/brunch? I’m not a huge fan of Anne Sathers or Stella’s Diner and Yolk tends to be a huge wait with sometimes a lack of space to hang out indoors while waiting.
