Shop Ethical and Give Back
The adventure that began in a small town just outside of Detroit has carried me to South Orange, New Jersey. The journey has taught me many lessons, but right now it’s this:
We’re all in this together.
I studied fashion at Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago, then I spent the next 13 years crisscrossing the country as an Urban Outfitters employee. I learned the retail business inside and out, top to bottom, and along the way, I aspired to open my own store that better reflected my values - providing soft, stylish, and sustainable clothing that gives back to the community.
Sadie’s offers ethically produced women’s and men’s clothing and home goods from local suppliers and suppliers who believe in and work toward a sustainable future. To that end, we donate 1% of every sale to charity. Each month we give back to a different charity to support vulnerable women & children, racial equality, people with disabilities, and more.
We are devoted to learning and leading our community toward a thoughtful & sustainable future. Will you join us?
Sadie’s storefront in South Orange opened in November, 2017. Sadie was my cat. Well...she was my boyfriend’s cat, and when I married my boyfriend, Sadie became my cat, too. Sadie died in 2015 and naming the store for her is my way of keeping her with me. She was warm, kind, and inviting. That’s the spirit I envision for the store.
My name is Cat, and this is Sadie’s. Shop ethically & give back...You are WELCOME here!
