For Kristy Kladzyk and Sara McIntosh, the Groupon that McIntosh purchased for Kladzyk’s Studio Within Salon and Spa last year offered much more than a onetime business exchange. After meeting during McIntosh’s spa visit and discovering their shared interest in vintage clothing and fashion design, the two women decided to combine forces and open a shop in Lincoln Square. The store is part studio—McIntosh makes custom footwear on site (shoes start at $300 and boots start at $500)—and part retail shop, with vintage collections by a few local vendors, including Kladzyk.
