DAddarie taught people to turn damaged sweaters into pet beds, weave rag rugs on a makeshift loom from strips of old sheets, and make aprons from mens discarded dress shirts. Every time Id do a class, I would produce more things that I wanted to sell at the store, she said. I thought, We should have our own private label. And so Hatched was born. Graphic designer Tara Kenny created an attractive label, and full-scale production began. The line was launched at Chicken Alleys Peep Show and Arts and Collectibles sale in August. The Chicken Alley Thrift Shop has launched a new line of upcycled shirts and pants called Hatched. -Photo by Stacey Rupolo Ms. DAddaries daughter made dozens of trend-conscious overdyed plaid shirts by tying, bleaching, and dying the shirts. Thrift shop manager and quilting enthusiast Sandy Pratt contributed beautiful pillows featuring the Black Dog and other logos salvaged from tee shirts. Shoppers snapped up the items during the two popular sales.
