Ina’s Farewell Yard Sale

Now that the West Loop’s iconic Ina’s has closed its doors, the restaurant is hosting a farewell yard sale this weekend. The storied restaurant is chock full of memories for many, right down to the bounteous salt and pepper shakers Ina Pinkney collected over the years. This is your chance to take a piece of Ina’s home with you and cherish it forever and ever. There will be salt and pepper shakers, chairs, plateware, and espresso equipment. Be there January 17 and 18 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Cash only.

Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau

If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
Frederick Douglass

If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.
Gail Sheehy

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.
Maya Angelou

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
Anatole France

Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change – this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.
Bruce Barton

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
Arnold Bennett
