Did you go to Lincolnwood Fest and buy a purple brick?
The Purple Hotel on Touhy Avenue was a landmark for decades, and many people are remembering it by buying the purple bricks. Thwy were sold at Lincolnwood Fest for a $5 donation, which went to the Lincolnwood Library.
So what do you plan to do with your brick? Use it as a paperweight? Put it in the garden? Put it on the mantel?
