Newlyweds Douglas and Anne Ramsell Dowd had such a blast scouring antique stores, estate sales, and local shops while decorating their new home that they decided to open up their very own home décor store in Oak Park.
Called Refind Home (139 S. Oak Park Ave.), the shop is gearing up for its grand opening this weekend and will be full of mid-century modern furniture, textiles, gifts, and accessories.
But what sets this store apart from others is that everything there comes with a “green” story. It could be that it was made locally, or used and recycled, or repurposed. The idea is that you can shop based solely on what you think is the prettiest, knowing that anything you buy there will be eco-friendly.
