Orecul77 is a new shop in Highland Park that offers several ways to be green by recycling, reusing, and especially reimagining the clothing that we already have. Tawny Lucero's unusual boutique is now open and ready for business. In every aspect of buy local, this is a great place. Tawny is local, she deals with local craftspeople, and her shop is close to everything on the York Blvd you also love like The York Pub, Johnny's and Marty's.
Still love that gray sweater but you spilled wine on it and can't get the stain out? Tawny will figure out a way to cover it up stylishly. Still love those jeans but they are so threadbare they are about to reveal way too much? She can help you re-engineer your own clothes, or you can buy something off the rack that she has created out of other clothes. What a unique idea!
You can donate old clothes and what she doesn't use she'll take to a homeless shelter. You can also shop for other cool items that are for sale on consignment, made by local artisans. There are bags, jewelry, craft items galore. Tawny also plans to have a story telling night on January 22 starting at 7 pm. It sounds unusual, but with some "bring your own" snacks and wine, who knows what creative tales may unwind?
Check it out at Orecul77, 5159 York Blvd, Highland Park 90042. Call her at 323-254-2600 for hours and more info.
