Me, Me, Me!

The last time you maxed out your credit card, you took a vow: no more shopping on Oak Street.

Then you wept at the thought of leaving your house only for toilet paper and gummy worms.

End your spending strike this Thursday when Me&Ro opens its new Oak Street shop.

The interior — dark wood accents, red Venetian glass walls, an indoor pond — is a cool change of scene from your cramped apartment.

Most of the handmade gold, silver, and platinum baubles are engraved with a tiny signature symbol expressing strength, love, or faith. You’ll go weak for stackable rings, hammered bangles, and pendant necklaces. Not to mention limited-edition sapphire rings that are exclusive to the Chicago store.

Spending money on Haribo: $4.

Spending on timeless accessories: priceless.

Me&Ro, 61 East Oak Street, between Rush Street and Michigan Avenue (312-957-8181 or
