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?

  • Riveras neighbor

    There is one on Clybourn and Webster, don't know the name, but it's the kind of place you're looking for, good luck.

    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.

  • 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.

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.

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.

  • nancy and d3. excellent suggestion. asking simply and politely for that org status can probably tell you all you need to know.

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

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.
