News: I Love Chicago Boutique

ilovechicagopic

I am super excited to have been approached by a new boutique which opened its doors at O’Hare International Airport earlier this month: I Love Chicago!

This incredibly-well curated little boutique offers handmade goodies from artisans from the area, allowing international travelers who are buzzing through Terminal 5 a chance to scoop up a true blue Chicago souvenir.

We are currently stocking the store with our popular Sweet Stitch embroidered sweatshirts, Flirty Flounce peplum tops, Grunge Love totes, men’s Smash Shirts, Perfect Gent bow ties, and a new, yet to be release online scarf design called Chevron Sweetie.

So next time you’re zipping through O’Hare – be sure you take a moment to swing by this great little shop to stock up on some of your Pierogi Picnic faves!

A Day at the Market

Farmer’s Market season is in its full glory this time of year in Chicago – and I’m reaping the benefits!¬†Supporting local farmers and food artisans is just the start. Market shoppers find the best quality produce while building relationships with the people who grow it. Forging this link between the food, the maker and the consumer creates a connection that’s been lost over the years with the advent of the one-stop shopping grocery store chains.

So if you’re looking for great food, people and a welcome atmosphere – find a farmer’s market near you. You’ll be glad you did!
