Christy, Social Media & Marketing
We recently gave you a sneak peek at a few of Chicago’s most talked about eateries, retailers and service providers that will soon offer exclusive promotions and universal loyalty rewards on Ox&Pen. Since then, we have signed on many new merchants; read more about a few Chicago through-and-through vendors in which you might be interested:
Krista K Boutique
The first upscale women’s clothing store in the Southport Corridor, Krista K is now at the center of a thriving shopping area. In its first year of business, the boutique was named Chicago’s Best New Women’s Boutique by Chicago Magazine and was featured on ABC’s 190 North as one of Chicago’s top 3 Boutiques. Krista K has since been featured in Lucky, InStyle, Women’s Wear Daily, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Travel + Leisure, Crains, Time Out, Daily Candy, Chicago Social, the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun Times and more. In 2004, Krista K doubled the size of its original space to broaden its collection of denim and maternity.
By 2006, the maternity collection had outgrown this space and in need of its own home. Thus in August 2006, Krista K Maternity + Baby opened its doors a half-block north of Krista K.
Darren Jones Fine Art
Darren Jones is a Chicago-based artist who captures nature’s beauty in his paintings which evoke emotion and a sense of humanity. His work, featured in galleries and private collections across North America, in Europe, Australia and the Middle East, is impressionistic and contemporary in style. Jones paints out of his studio in Ravenswood and is inspired by fond memories of his mother’s gardens and the novel surroundings he encounters while traveling.
Armando Pedroso Fine Art
To create his inspirational and emotionally driven paintings, Armando Pedroso deconstructs and reconstructs layers of roofing tar, plaster, found objects, metals, symbols, rich acrylic colors and words. With paintings that are sometimes
playful, gritty or with an urban feel, his focus is to encourage the viewer to act upon hidden passions and dreams. To get early access to promotions and loyalty rewards from these merchants and more, sign up for updates at oxandpen.com.
