Heart of Villa Park-ness
When it comes to hot vintage buys, we believe that nothing ventured means nothing gained. So when Amigo Guitar Shows made its annual migration to the Chicagoland area, a whole mess of us put on our pith helmets, grabbed our elephant rifles and mounted an expedition deep into the heart of the wild–Villa Park, Illinois–in search of the most dangerous game: a Portillo’s Hot Dog, and after washing a few of ‘em down with an Old Style or two over ice we waddled up North Villa Ave to the Odeum Expo Center for Amigo Chicago.
Eastern Dupage County’s largest sports and expo center did not disappoint with over 20,000 square feet of wall-worthy pieces to satisfy our vintage vice.
It was just a short hour trek back to our 3316 N Lincoln Ave showroom with our game in tow, ready to be mounted on our walls next to scores of conquests old and new. But unlike a crusty old mansion, what’s on our walls changes daily–hourly, in fact–so if you’d like to hunt down the beast of your dreams, better call, click, or stop in now and do it quickly. These rare breeds are scarce at best and we can’t keep them hung up here for long before some other explorer plants his flag and claims them for their own. Our vintage buyers await.
