Find This Chanel Bag, Hidden Somewhere in Downtown Chicago

This little chain-strap Chanel Bag is hidden somewhere in the downtown area and it could be yours—if you’re willing to work for it. The first person who can complete a scavenger hunt hosted by Luxury Garage Sale (1658 N. Wells St., 312-291-9126, luxurygaragesale.com), a high-end consignment store in Old Town, wins.

If you want to in, drop by the store to pick up an advanced copy of the scavenger hunt map. Clues, tasks, and tweets may very well lead you to the loot. The scavenger hunt officially begins at 10 a.m. (and concludes at 3 p.m.) tomorrow, November 13.

There’s also an after-party with a sale. Read more …
