What You'll Get

Cereal box sides recommend that you absorb no more than 20 ounces of falutin per day to properly maintain internal homeostasis. Today's deal helps you stick to said dietary guidelines: for $25, you get $60 worth of down-to-earth apparel and design workshops at Substance for Fashion Conscious People, LLC. in Short North. You can buy up to three Groupons and combine them in one purchase, meaning $75 would get you $180 to spend on anything at the store, including sale items.
Feel free to browse the inventory online, but you'll need to visit the store to use your Groupon. Substance carries a variety of tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, and accessories for the frill-free fashion fan. Free yourself from the harsh confines of your everyday corsets and elaborate hoop skirts, and exchange them for comfortable clothes of simplistic beauty. Don a red essential crewneck sweater ($89) and pair it with the skirt go round ($49.99), rumored to generate hypnosis should the wearer spin at the correct interval. Blend into a crowd of neon-pantsuit-wearing business ladies with a vibrant shirt dress ($49.99), and accessorize with the vegan-friendly bow flat ($14.99). Many items are less than $50, giving your Groupon purchasing power equal to that of pure rock candy in Candy Land.
You can also put your Groupon toward Substance's Design Lab Workshops, which are unique opportunities to customize your wardrobe under the guidance of a professional designer. Learn to flawlessly execute antique block printing and re-design an old favorite or renovate a t-shirt. Workshops include demonstrations, basic materials, refreshments, and a complimentary Talkboy FX Plus. Each class is $29.95 and requires between three and 12 attendees. Invite your friends for a powwow of fashion crafting or join an existing class, if you're flying solo. Call to make reservations or just to talk to someone about the decline of the Russian space program.
- Sustainable, earth friendly clothing- hard to find in Columbus. We purchased a pair of pants that were made from another pair of pants that did not sell so they were re-invented into a new look. How clever is that!? Intersting [sic] fashion forward collections and really nice service. – columbusonian, Citysearch
- You really should check this place out if you're interested in cool clothes and a special shopping experience. The owner is exremely [sic] gracious and understands the business concept of doing well by doing good. All in all, a great retail find. – nancy, Google Maps
