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 meandrojewelry.com).
