Events & Sales: Virtual Garage Sale

virtual garage sale: pierogi picnic

My mom recently booked David and I to help her with her first-ever garage sale – which got me thinking – I should hold one too! But online!

Starting on Friday morning through Sunday night, I’m going to be offering deep discounts on discontinued Pierogi Picnic items in my Etsy shop. I’m talking $15 and less on many classics, like those photographed here! Head over to my current sale bin, start hearting your faves, and then check back on June 6th for slashed prices.

It will be a great way to freshen up your wardrobe while making room in mine for new designs! Thanks for the idea mom!

Press: Eco-Minded Chicago

Kelly Lynn O’Brien, the beauty and brains behind Chicago’s newest go-to site for all things green, Eco-Minded Chicago, presented me with the honor of being her first featured designer on the site.

Check out my fashion feature on her site, and more importantly, peruse the other contents of the site and you’ll be left feeling inspired and ready to explore the earth-friendly side of Chicago.
