This first Wednesday of March we celebrate Women’s History Month. As we make the transition from commemorating Black History Month to celebrating Women’s History this month, we spotlight Black women entrepreneurs creating community and camaraderie through commerce. Tell your partner, friend, and family about these amazing women and join us in celebrating!
Roxanne Bellamy, longtime friend and wife of our Co-owner Kevin, is also the owner and Creative Director behind her own full-service, event design & planning firm RB & Co. The firm specializes in producing refined events for clients who value quality experiences. Roxanne prides herself on collaborating with other BIPOC and women owned businesses, and is currently curating a month of virtual events in celebration of Women’s History and International Women’s Day.

OH-mazing owner and fellow D.C. based entrepreneur, Stephanie Williams set out to create a scrumptious alternative to snacks filled with allergens and preservatives. We first met Stephanie 3 years ago at an architecture firm's networking event where we showcased as vendors in a “Future of Retail” test module. There I got a taste of her healthy creations and have been hooked ever since. The tasty granola that comes in flavors like Lemon Bar and Caribbean Delight are a long time favorite of ours!

I first met All Very Goods owner, Ama Schulman, while the both of us worked our retail chops for J. Crew. I randomly discovered her goods on social media and became a customer before realizing it was her business. The thank you card that came in my initial order and subsequent orders are as much of a gift as the goods themselves. The All Very Goods designs celebrate Black culture, community, art, activism, and allyship. The collection offers something for everyone and makes for great gifts year round to accessorize your look.

My fiery friend Sascha Lee has always had a light of curiosity and exploration in her DNA. This Afro-Latina launched her line of curvaceous candles on March 1, making Women’s History Month LIT, figuratively and literally. The candles are made in small batches sold on Etsy. Definitely one to watch on the journey of building a brand born out of an idea followed by action. Click here to shop: SASCHA CANDLES
