Earth Day is Sunday, April 22 and taking care of mother earth isn't limited to recycling cans, paper or glass. Emilia Dlugolecka with Mr. & Mrs. Digz clothing store in Andersonville shows us some creative and easy ways clothing is "up-cycled" into a whole new look. They also use clothing scraps to create unique cuffs and even greeting cards.
Mr. & Mrs. Digz
5668 N. Clark Street
After being laid-off from her corporate job, Mr. & Mrs. Digz owner - Emilia Dlugolecka found a way to be an "economy buster" in today's Chicago retail scene. Instead of carrying one specific price point, Emilia decided to create a four part concept store, at four different price points, mixing high-end designer vintage, with more affordable local designers, consignment and handmade apparel and merchandise.
Mr. & Mrs. Digz will be reaching a milestone on May 5, 2012 as they celebrate their third year in business. This milestone comes as a positive reminder that small businesses can thrive, especially in these economic times where thousands of Chicagoland small business are being run out by big-chain companies.
In honor of this milestone the entire store will be 50% on May 5th. Check-in on your smartphones while in shop and receive an additional 10% OFF your entire purchase.
