Virtu is twenty three, come and celebrate with me.

Your friendly shop around the corner is turning 23 today. Let’s have some fun, shall we?

As a token of my appreciation, please enjoy 20% off
in store and online, no code needed.

The sale starts right now and goes through 11:59 pm Sunday, January 28th. The fact that you seem to love this little shop is the reason I wake up every day with a grateful heart.

Go ahead, enjoy yourself. I know you’ve had your eye on some things. These will be the final days of sale on sale holiday items too. Stock up, treat yourself, thank you for letting me do what I love to do at Virtu.

Woo hoo!

We’re going to follow CPS’ lead and keep the shop closed again tomorrow. It’s just not safe for anyone to be outside. This is our door, frozen shut.

To make it up to you, go ahead and take 20% off store wide online now until we open our doors again on Wednesday at 11 am, no code needed.

Who knows, you might even get a double discount on sale items including holiday and hobnail candles. I’m just cold enough to think that’s a good idea.

Stay warm. Stay safe. Make some soup. I’ll see you all on Wednesday for in store pick ups. Xxo 🥶

It’s a little chilly out there. Stay safe at home and shop from your couch. Our site is stocked with all of our cards, most jewelry and gift.

Choose in store pick up for when the deep freeze is over.

If you do happen to be out and about today, I’m at the shop until 5. It’s warm and cozy in here and I’m still counting stuff. And I have wine.

Cheers to true chicago winters. 🍷

KU-DOS to each of you that braved the elements today. Thank you for sharing your smiles with me.

In between visits, I took down the tree (finally) and gathered our holiday sale. I was shocked to find not one BUT TWO espresso martini ornaments hiding in the tree. Come on now, how is that possible?

Anyhoo, holiday is mostly half off with the fun foodie ornaments at ten bucks a pop now. Need a little treat on this gross day? Hop onto our site and click to shop the night away. Our whole Holiday Shoppe is on sale over there.

Otherwise I’ll see you all bright and early at the crack of 11 tomorrow. Cheers! 🥂

And we’re back! Nothing like opening on the grossest day of the year. Come on by and say hi.

We’ve got half off holiday. There’s a brand new bunch of your favorite Ramona + Ruth Pause planners. I’m still counting and decluttering and I’d love to see your faces. I’ve missed you so.

Stay dry out there! ☔️

A beautiful way to end the year on 123123. How are you marking the moment? Inspire us below with your traditions in the comments. ⬇️

The kid and I are in pjs on the couch, taking stock of achievements and making note of where we may have fallen short. 2024 is hours away and I’m grateful to turn the page. 🕰️

Before we grab our chopsticks for the night, let me say once again, thank you for supporting us this year and always. 🍣

As a reminder our sale is still live until midnight online. We will be closed to in store traffic through the 8th and look forward to welcoming you back for regular hours on Tuesday the 9th. 🛍️

Happy new year, friends. I wish you a year filled with hope, health, and happiness. 🥂

Sorry folks, we’ll be closed today and then back open tomorrow and Sunday for your shopping pleasure.

Our sale is live online all day and night if you wanted to grab something special for yourself.

Remember, too, we’ll be closed January 1st through 8th for inventory and behind the scenes stuff.

Thanks much and have a great day.

We hope you’ve had the merriest time with family and friends today if you were celebrating. We’ll be closed tomorrow and back open for (mostly) regular hours beginning Wednesday through the end of the year.

The shop will be closed to in store traffic for the first week of the year while we take care of really boring behind the scenes stuff.

And because you’ve stuck with this post thus far, here’s a little treat for you. We know Santa sometimes misses the wishlists while he’s taking care of kids worldwide. As my gift to you, the one who pulls it together for everyone else, please enjoy 20% off store wide instore and online through midnight on New Year’s Eve.

My wish for you in the new year is peace, joy, and all things sparkly. ✨🥰✨

A glass of wine, some arancini and plans for an epic charcuterie board. I’m already in my jammies and I couldn’t be more proud or grateful for the season you’ve given us.

I hope tomorrow is filled with navy blue ribbon and boxes of sparkly things. We’ll take a little nap and then see everyone again on Wednesday for regular hours.

From the bottom of my little family’s hearts, I thank you. We wish you the merriest and happiest of days together. ❤️❤️❤️

What a difference a day - and a new wireless connection - makes. Thanks so much to all who came out to join us at the shop yesterday.

We’re feeling festive and full of joy. Doors open at 10 and we’ll be here til 7. How can we help you grant some holiday wishes today? Deep breath, there’s plenty of time and we’ll wrap you up merrily. We might even give you a cocktail or a caramel or two.

I’m not usually a Bah Humbug kind of girl, in fact I freaking love Christmas, right down to my little elf hat and headband bow.

Sometimes, though, circumstances that are entirely out of your control get in the way of running a small business and today was that day for me.

In a week that small shops like mine are their busiest, we were unable to accept credit card payments for more than half the day. As any small business owner will tell you, it’s never a dull moment. I’m grateful things weren’t worse.

To all of you who held on tight and struggled with me while we had no internet, I am beyond thankful. We were able to hotspot a Venmo around 1pm and without missing a beat, you cheerfully said yes.

I am THRILLED to say we have a brand new router and cables and connections all thanks to Mario and Keith at AT&T. To those we had to turn away this morning, come on back if you had your eye on something special.

We’re up and running like new again and our doors are open through Christmas Eve. How can we help you grant some of those wishes this year? 🎁🎁

Eucalyptus, palo santo, and a selenite wand, wrapped merrily with a little jingle bell. I can think of no lovelier way to celebrate the holiday. Bring in the light and good energy this new year, care of Catherine Rising.
