This year has been pretty darn amazing. I am very thankful for our business and all the support we receive from customers, friends, family and the community. Growing up in the North Shore it’s extra special to be featured in our local paper.

Here is my photo on the cover page of this week’s Highland Park Landmark newspaper!

Getting Involved. My interview with The YOU Journal about Highwood’s Girl’s Night Out April 21, 2016

For those of you who do not know me, my name is Julie Brugioni and I am the new Highwood Chamber of Commerce president and owner of the Silk Thumb. The Silk Thumb was located in Highland Park since the early 80’s and I relocated the business to Highwood in spring of 2014. And let me tell you, that was one of the best decisions I ever made. Highwood is very special to me in many ways. My parents immigrated to Highwood in the 70’s and I was raised here. My mother is still a resident and now it is the city my business is flourishing in.

Our community is different than surrounding cities. Highwood’s rich history of immigrants and new found young citizens moving into Highwood creates a community that is diverse and has much to offer. With our fun events like Bloody Mary Fest, Girl’s Night Out and our Wednesday evening markets and our new authentic restaurants, Highwood is drawing people from other communities in to dine, shop and drink.

I was interviewed by The YOU Journal and the article about Highwood’s 5th Annual Girl’s Night Out is linked below. It will be a fun night out on the town!
