Arlington Park has a new vintage shop, Crain's Chicago Business reports. Lucky Junk, which has two booths at the Colonial Antique Mall in Woodstock (and an Etsy shop), opened a brick-and-mortar store earlier this month.
The store has rather unusual hours—it's open on weekends every second and fourth week of the month, or by appointment—and owners refer to it as an "occasional vintage market store."
When staffers are not in the space, they're seeking out "the most awesome vintage, shabby chic, industrial junk, and all other old items in between," says Lucky Junk's Facebook page. The space also gets redecorated every time it opens, so "the shop will always be vintage-fresh."
