Many are thinking green… Turning to ‘recycled’ products concerns about the environment  have us looking for products made from reused material  but price still rules. Shoppers want good quality and style without spending a lot more money.

Second Chance Art & Accessories – Amy Manning talking about architecture salvage items.

One hundred juried artists will bring their pieces to ArtFest Michigan Ave  at the base of the iconic Chicago Tribune building overlooking the Chicago River. Bright Pink is the charity chosen for the Green Ribbon Project. Participating artists put a green ribbon on a piece of their choice in their booth and if it’s sold the artist agrees to give 10% of the proceeds to Bright Pink. The organization is a non-profit focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.
