Yesterday afternoon, I noticed a handwritten sign in the window of an empty storefront at 501 North Wells. It read: “Like it? Need it? Buy it!!!”, and listed a website for people looking to purchase goods. The place was closed, but through the window I spotted a framed Picasso poster ($150), a pair of darling upholstered armchairs, and two shapely wooden stools, along with lots of vintage-looking rugs, tables, dressers, and artwork. There were plenty of designer handbags and heels on display, too. I scribbled down the web address and, according to the shop’s blog, it’s a pop-up estate sale and will be open today (May 27). For inquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy hunting!
