from Angela at Cosa Cura

A visit to Cosa Cura is not only part visual treat and part treasure hunt, but the local store provides a guilt-free style of shopping. Buying resale, locally-made and socially-conscious products represents a shift to quality over quantity. “We like things that are funky and different,” says Angela Dietrich, owner and curator. The difference in the lines they represent can be found on each tag which tells the story of an item—who made it, or its social impact. “We want to help customers make educated choices,” Angela says.
