This certainly comes as welcome news following the recent close of Chicago icon Uncle Fun. Husband and wife team, Sam Wells and Liz McArthur, are opening a brand new vintage toy store this March at 2064 N. Western Avenue according to a story published yesterday by the Chicago Tribune.

You'll find everything at Toy De Jour from vintage collectibles, furniture and clothing to action figures and one-of-a-kind memorabilia.The husband and wife team have been collecting, selling, buying and showcasing vintage toys and art for 15 years.

They also plan to feature local artists in the space. If you'd like to participate in a fundraiser, they've started one at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/toy-de-jour-store-front.

Conveniently located by Margie's Candies, Ipsento and Purple Monkey Playroom Toy de Jour is scheduled to open early March 2014 with a grand opening in mid-March.  Welcome to the neighborhood.
