Two Story Farmhouse
Handmade jewelry, designer apparel, "must give" gifts and unique home décor
Fashion for Good is just one brand available at this unique, socially aware boutique, but it tells the story of the entire store. Located at 1016 North Blvd in Oak Park (708 613-4122), the enterprise was inspired by owner Liz Drogosz’ childhood home in a Wisconsin farmhouse and by her discovery of one-of-a-kind artisinal products in far-flung villages in Haiti, Africa and South America.
From its wooden floors to its tin ceilings, this vintage Oak Park building is filled with jewelry, fashions and accessories, all hand-crafted with a purpose in mind. Bracelets and necklaces, branded Fashion for Good, are made from hand-painted paper beads and help rural artisans in Uganda rise above poverty. Young girls in Haiti paint their life experiences onto leather, which is then crafted into simply styled purses by Sa Voix (Her Voice). Closer to home, jewelry made through The Shine Project sends inner-city students to college.
This eclectic selection rewards shoppers with beautiful items — and a story to tell.Edit Module
