After a woman smashed her car window, a Chicago woman spent the Christmas time searching for trash and taking away what she called a “priceless treasure.”
On Saturday evening and Sunday morning, five handmade Polish national costumes were stolen from a wicker park car in a robbery and robbery.
Owners Marlena Dzis said five pieces of Wholesale Halloween Costumes, each made of beads and embroidery, are hard to replace.
“They are very gorgeous, they’re hand-sewn in Poland and for me it’s very special,” Dzis said.
Each piece of clothing represents a different area of Poland. They borrowed from The Lira Ensemble, a professional performing arts company specializing in Polish music, song and dance. Dzis is a choir singer.
Her car was taken down at 1400 in Wicker Park Avenue. She worked with pawnshops, resale shops and check trash bins. Dzis even followed a garbage truck to a landfill.
“He said.” Honestly, if thrown away, your chances will be one in a million, “Dzis said.
She has a performance this weekend, hoping they will appear before that.
“It’s very sad that someone steals something that represents your culture, your legacy and your family,” Dzis said.
