Now Open: Annual Celebration Marketplace
In preparation for WOMEN’S WAY 43rd Annual Celebration: Breaking Down Barriers, we’re launching special offerings and programming leading up to the event! Join us for the Annual Celebration Marketplace, a virtual pop-up shop featuring women owned businesses! The virtual market is now open through May 17th.
The needs of women owned businesses are urgent….
- The current global crisis has created a challenging landscape for business owners, especially those who own small, local companies. New reports show 60% of business closures due to the coronavirus pandemic are now
- Women of color are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the country, yet receive less than 3% of all venture capital in the USA
What you can do:
One great way to support women is to use your spending power. By shopping with women owned businesses, buyers have the power to better distribute wealth in America to create long term change! That’s why WOMEN’S WAY is shopping local and woman owned!
Support our featured businesses and shop from an array of goods, clothing, jewelry and more! Whether it’s a gift for Mother’s Day, a new Spring wardrobe, or anything in between, these businesses have something for everyone!
BOOTH 1: GIFT BOXES BY ELAINE
Owner: Elaine Dimino
To shop: Just enter the code Womensway in the DISCOUNT CODES field at Checkout to receive $2 off each regularly priced box! This does not apply to our Clearance section where prices already reflect a $5 discount. The Womensway special discount code will be effective during the WOMEN’S WAY Annual Celebration Marketplace April 5-May 17th.
About: Each box is hand-crafted in our Center City home (which is full of cotton fabrics, trims, ribbons, metal findings, beads and stacks of hard cardboard boxes!) They are unique in that each box is decorated inside as well as out. We love seeing the expressions of customers young and old when they first open the box and see a surprise inside. Our gift boxes have so many uses – as a memory box; to store special treasures and items easily misplaced; to present a gift card or check for a special occasion or to thank our essential workers; or a unique gift to acknowledge the students, teachers and the adults at home who are meeting the challenges of virtual learning.
