We're not sure about you but we think the guys up in Roscoe village have lost their mind--they're already talking about Christmas. Starting tonight more than 20 shops will be staying open until 9PM or a little later for the neighborhood's annual Christmas in July sale. Most all the shops at Roscoe and Southport including Spex, Lush, a Pied, City Olive, Little Trhreads, The Denim Lounge, Roscoe Village Bikes, Hubba Hubba and Village Paperie are taking part. Sales range from 20-50% and will stay at those price points until Sunday. Also, there will be a guy dressed as a santa wandering around on the street, so don't call the cops.
