Yesterday myself and Electric Flamingo Vintage where shut down by Alderman Waguespack. Even though we have our licenses he took the cowardly way out and sent the cops " to deal with me" in his words. Chicago among other city have funny policies that make it almost impossible to function as a small business. Instead they give huge breaks and money back to big companies that pay crap to their employees like Walmart and Amazon. But every fight has it's win even if it's small. The office of Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa allowed us to set up by the blue line on Kedzie next to the garden. For this and him, I am extremely grateful. We need more like him in office. Please come by this Sunday and show us some love for small business that reinvest their dollars in the same community!! . . . . #anchorbabyvintage#supportsmallbusiness#womeninbusiness#logansquare ##shopthetruck#shoplocal#littlebutfierce#upcycledclothing#upcyclefashion#progressinillinois#latinasinbusiness . . . .
We have been very blessed since we opened Anchor Baby last year in July, and have had so much support from our family, friends and customers. In the last couple of months we have also had people donate clothes and accessories to our store and we would like to pay it forward. please see below for details. . . . Leaders Shaping Neighborhood Action - At LSNA we believe that young people of color are the leaders we desperately need right now! For the past ten years, LSNA has hired and trained over 1200 Chicago youth to be solutionaries in solving some of their community’s issues around housing affordability, immigrant rights, K-12 school funding, and the need for restorative and holistic solutions to community violence. When you buy a hand-picked garment from Anchor Baby that has been donated to the store, you are investing in young people who are investing their lives in making their neighborhoods places of love and well being. Look for the special tags. 70% percent of the proceeds will be donated. . . . . . . . #anchorbabyvintage#shopsmall#shoplocal#payingitforward#logansquare#lsna#youth#youngleaders#community#sharethelove
