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?

  • I AM on Ebay. I know every online retail site there is. I'm trying to sell VINTAGE via consignment. Thanks.

  • Dreamer North Center

    Well OK then. Good LUCK.

Question about possible cougar sighting in Illinois.

If this or any other cougars get spotted again, why will it most likely be shot & killed? How many cougars have already been killed here? Like 3, 4?

Why can't we just (supervise our pets and then) turn a blind eye to it? I'm guessing there are probably even more cougars running around than we even know about. They are just doing their thing and trying to live. Why do we have to kill them?

    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.

Neighborly Litigation (Chadha v. NPES)

Many on this forum talk about litigating, be it for some unneighborly thing or other. Well, here is your chance to read the behind the scenes workings of the Chicago Way in its entirety (link below - get some popcorn and settle in) and VOTE.

This is the culmination of 7 years of attorney fees and a waste of our taxpayer-funded court's time/resources, in my opinion, of course.

DEAR ALL:

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.

    No problem Mute. Knowledge is power, and forewarned is forearmed, and any other cliches that apply. BTW I consider something that is still cool after twenty years, and stands the test of time, a classic. Except maybe a Yugo.

Illinois Police Department call scam (?)

Has anyone recieved any calls from the Illinois Police Department asking for donations. At least once a year I receive a call from people claiming to be from the Illinois Police Department, in the calls they either ask for a donation to help fallen officers or in one call that I recieved recently, the person tried to sell me energy efficiency light bulbs (being that the proceeds benefit families of) As a senior citizen, I have always been aware of scams and have often wondered if this is such.

  • Always look up the Form 990 for not for profit charities. It is filed w/ the Secretary of State.

    The Illinois Police Association ends up giving less than 10% of money raised to police charities on a yearly basis.

    The also have high complaints with consumer groups about not removing phone numbers of those who request being removed.

Lakeview -- are the stores open New Years day?

Hi everybody, I wasn't paying attention. Are Whole Foods, Jewel Walmart and other stores open today?

  • Check out websites. Almost all list their store hours on the holidays.

  • Yes...but you have to scour for the locations and there are varying hours with many; like Whole Paycheck (oops...Whole Foods). S0, I figure, just call the location.

Police letting crazies loose

http://www.cwbchicago.com/2017/12/lakeview-man-brandishing-ax-claims-he.html?m=1

This statement in the article
"Police cannot arrest someone based on anonymous complaints" is new to me.

    Lakeview Man Brandishing Ax Claims He Did It Because Of Trump - And Cops Let Him Go
    A Lakeview man was released without charges Saturday evening after he told police that he took out his newly-purchased ax on a CTA bus "because of our current president." Multiple 911 callers reported seeing a white male in a blue and white plaid shirt carrying an ax or waving an ax on the street near the 1300 block of West Wellington shortly after 5 p.m.
    http://www.cwbchicago.com
  • This story makes no sense. Buying an ax from Menards is perfectly legal. Taking the bus with Menards purchases is perfectly legal. How does Trump fit into this story? Trump wants to subsidized coal. An ax is used for chopping wood. This man wants to heat his house using firewood instead of natural gas, something that would please Trump because clean energy is a goal for Libtards and others who hate 'Merica. And now you know the rest of the story...

  • BettyR Northcenter

    If the man with the ax did not do anything wrong and there is not a legitimate complaint against him, the police can’t do anything.

    Trump was in the story because allegedly the man with the ax brought up his name.

    Way to go off track, Mark Jones.

Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers Power into the New Year fueled by tacos and 3 Floyds beer at Big Star (1531 N. Damen). DJs spin both hard metal and oldies by the likes of Hank Williams. Knock back a shot of bourbon at midnight, because champagne is for the weak. 6 PM, free

...Neo-Futurists’ tentpole show, The Infinite Wrench, follows. Both take place at the Neo-Futurarium (5153 N. Ashland). 7:30 PM, $75

A Night of Witchcraft and Wizardry This party at the Laboratory (2349 W. North) begins by sorting attendees into “houses” a la Harry Potter, which then compete with each other using the magic of science! Watch out for explosions other than the midnight fireworks outside. 6:45 PM, $40

Noname Rising hip-hop star Noname, whom Reader music critic Leor Galil calls “a distinctive, thoughtful talent capable of balancing intellect and intimacy,” leads the lyrical charge into the New Year at Lincoln Hall (2424 N. Lincoln). 10 PM-1 AM, $40 in advance, $45 at the door

Steamworks: The Musical New Year's at the Annoyance Theatre (851 W. Belmont) is a holistic affair. Appetizers whet the appetite for dessert and a one-off return of the theater's popular gay-bathhouse-centered tale Steamworks: The Musical. 9:30 PM, $40
