From My Room is going to an online format! We were planning on doing this in the fall when our current lease expires. But our landlord has unexpectedly found a new tenant for our space and we must be out by the end of June. This means our plans for changing our format have greatly accelerated. Our short term focus must necessarily be on moving out in a very short time frame. Our online store is not yet ready so here will be a several month delay while we finish those preparations.

So our short term timeline is as follows:
By Sunday June 5 : All items that consignors want back must be picked up at the store. Note that we can provide you with a list of your available items but you must locate them in the store and bring them to the counter for return processing.
By Sunday June 12: All items in the store will be marked down to clearance prices.
By Sunday June 19: All remaining items in the store will be donated to a charity.
By Sunday June 26: From My Room at 1283 S. Naper Blvd. will be closed.

We apologize for the short notice but we did not foresee this happening. Sometime in the fall we expect to be back – but in a primarily online format which will also include shopping by appointment and events similar to school resale events. We are working with several local merchants to provide convenient drop off locations and may be able to offer pickups of items. We also intend to offer exciting features like online availability of inventory information so you can check the status of your items at any time. Check our website for information as our plans firm up.

We hope you will be patient and help us work through our changing situation. Without a full time storefront we will be able to offer you lower commission rates so that you can end up with more money in your pocket.

If you have any questions about the process for the month of June please call the store at 630-355-8442 during regular business hours. Going forward you can contact me at my current email address at

Thank you.
