On Tuesday, January 8TH, I posted the First BLOG about one of my favorite Places in Chicago:
Direct Auction Galleries, Inc.
Since that time, The Modicas have sent scores of Colorful Postcards to me with more Goods and Goodies to buy. Attempting to keep up with them, I have revised that Listing for those of you who enjoy the Art of Shopping for Quality & Pretty Things, while getting a Deal and a Luxury all within the same Visit.
