2018 Pittsburgh VegFest

Nicole Couch

In case you haven't heard, CHC will be open for business at the 2018 Pittsburgh VegFest! If you're in the area, come see us on Saturday, August 4 from 11:00-5:00 at Allegheny Commons Park. All customers will have the chance to browse our selection of dresses and jewelry in person and even try things on. See something you like? Take a quick moment to subscribe for a subscription box of items that we will hand-pick just for you. 

This is a really exciting event for CHC, as we love meeting and interacting with our customers face-to-face. This is one day that all of you can get in on the fun and see so many dresses and other vintage goodies in person! 

The VegFest is always filled with so many kind-hearted and compassionate people who are looking to do good in the world--whether you're there as a vegetarian, vegan, or as someone who is simply interested in looking around, we can't wait to be part of such a happy and driven crowd. The perks of shopping vintage fashion are not far at all from the benefits of eating cruelty-free. Together we are building a kinder and more environmentally-friendly future that we can all be proud of!

Ethical Makeup Brands

Nicole Couch

Walking through the aisles of drug stores, department stores, and beauty stores while shopping for makeup can be utterly overwhelming--the bright lights, endless brands, and uncountable products can turn a quick trip to buy a lipstick into a confusing and frustrating process. Deciding between brands, products, and colors is hard enough, but recently one more layer of consideration has become important to many shoppers--ethics.

"Cruelty-free" cosmetics are becoming more and more popular, yet some brands are still falling behind. Here are five drugstore brands that you can be sure do not test on animals and create products that you can always purchase completely guilt-free.

1. NYX

" NYX Professional Makeup is certified and acknowledged by PETA as a cruelty-free brand. We are committed to producing cruelty-free cosmetics. We do not test any of our products on animals.

2. wet n wild

"Wet  n  wild® NEVER tests on animals, and we are super proud of this. We never have, and we never will. We believe in beauty without cruelty first! None of our furry, feathery, or scaly friends were harmed in the making of our products. Whether you’re a card-carrying vegetarian who is committed to animal rights (and good for you!), or you just love puppies and bunnies and want them to smile (and who doesn’t?), we are with you! We want that too! In fact, most of our products are not only cruelty-free, but vegan as well."
