Celebrating 23 years of independent women in bold business Celebrating 23 years of small and local independent business in the heart of Bucktown. We honor the women whose work we carry. Thank you for joining us.



Where are you located?
Virtu is located in Bucktown at 2035 N Damen Avenue. Our closest intersection is Armitage and Damen. If you're taking the expressway, exit 90/94 at Armitage and take a right, heading West five blocks. You'll make a right on Damen.

What are your hours?
Our hours are 11 to 6 Tuesday through Saturday, Sunday 11 to 5. We are closed Mondays.

    Do you offer curbside pick up?
    Absolutely. If you are local, we might even be able to deliver your order, just ask. If you do place an order for curbside pick up, we kindly ask that you pick up your items within 48 hours of purchasing. We simply don't have the space to safely stash your stuff, as much as we'd like to. We'll call or email when you're order is ready.

    Why Virtuforyou?
    Virtu, taken from Italian and Latin, means an appreciation of fine objects. We hope to share only the finest and most fun with you. The foryou part? Because you never know what you might find on our shelves, as our one of a kind collection changes frequently. We don't repeat pieces of jewelry, especially, in a calendar year because we don't want you to catch your friends wearing the same earrings. If you see it, grab it, it might not be there next time. Life is short. Treat yourself, you work hard and you deserve it.

    Are dogs allowed?
    This is a hard one. We love dogs so much and wish that we could accommodate you and your furball on your evening stroll. Over the years, there have been a few problems with one or two visiting dogs - merchandise was broken, small children were terrified, peeing - it happens. Overwhelmingly, it's just a freak thing, but for the safety of everyone involved, we just can't risk it. Forgive us, but please keep your pup at home when visiting. If you're out and about on a walk and need a card or a candle, we've got a sturdy gate to tie your dog to, and we'll always offer treats and water while you shop. Thank you so much for understanding.

    I received a gift, but I'd like to return it.
    It is quite rare that someone receives something from our shop and just doesn't love it. We understand, it could happen. Virtu is a small family run shop and we accept returns for store credit only. If you'd like to exchange an item, simply let us know as soon as you receive it. You'll have fourteen days to return it for a credit that will expire exactly one year from the date of purchase. We will absolutely make allowances for more time during gifting seasons. If you are out of state and need to ship the item back to us, please contact theshop@virtuforyou.com for instructions on how to do so.

    All custom orders and sale items are considered final sale, with no returns or exchanges.

    Can I make a reservation?
    Excuse me? No joke, at least once a week we get a call from someone asking to make a reservation for dinner for a party of 6 or so. First it was Virtu, Honest Craft, in Scottsdale, AZ. They opened in 2013. Now we get requests for Virtue in Hyde Park. We are food fond ourselves, as you'll learn. If you're visiting, just ask us for some of our local favorites, and we'll happily supply you with a list. What we can't supply you with, sadly, is a reservation. Try Resy for those.

    Anything else we can help you with? 
    Just pop over to our contact page. We'll get back to you ASAP. Thanks so much for visiting our FAQs page. We can't wait to see you at the shop some time.
