Handmade soap shop sets up in Pilsen

Handmade soap and essential oils shop Leaders and Co. Apothecary recently opened near 18th and Halsted streets in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.

The shop, marked by a sign with a frog holding a wine bottle, at 708 W. 18th St. is the latest venture from Tanya Tucci, who also owns the art gallery Ugly Step Sister, reports.

“I want Pilsen to keep flourishing. If you invest in your own neighborhood, that’s how you make it turn around, but everyone has to help each other,” Tucci said.
