New pieces at local shops

With summer in full swing, I brought some new pieces to the stores where I am consigned. Just before Square Roots Fest in Lincoln Square, I sent some new stakes over to Sacred Art Chicago. It was fun to pick out what to send over. I am curious how they do this month as the […]
