Grand Re-Opening REP CHI 4427 N Milwaukee Ave on 10/10

Hello Friends!

We're excited to announce that in two month's we'll be hosting a Grand Re-Opening and celebrating 8 years of business.  Come join us, won't you?  Have SO many things planned for the day, hope you can make it!

What fantastic things are going on, you ask?  The Chicago Riots will be having their second annual Bake Sale Fundraiser (gluten free items, vegan stuffs, and normal people treats), One Tail at a Time will be here so you can meet those great folks, a handful of our friends will be vending their handmade wares, Vegan Food Truck will have a table of delicious food, AND our neighbor Maximum Distractions will be having his One Year Anniversary party that same day, too!  Lots more in the works but we have to keep a few surprises for the day.  


NEW THINGS IN THE SHOP:

The counter my dad built has been installed!  Shop Dog Bloo loves the lowered part.  He can beg for attention from customers much easier now.
