The idea for WE Shop started a few years ago when talking with other Women Entrepreneurs regarding their desires for their businesses. It became apparent that the only thing holding a lot of these Women back was the lack of affordable rent in our area as well as not wanting to take the leap into the business world alone.
A majority of the Women who are part of WE Shop are local entrepreneurs who want to have a place to display and sell their products or art, while also being surrounded by a creative community. What makes WE Shop unique is that there is also an area designated as a creative classroom to be available for any Women Entrepreneur to utilize as well, even if they are not selling their products here. Some of the ideas for community classes that have been presented to me include but are not limited to; paint and sip nights, basic photography classes, refurbishing furniture, card and jewelry making classes.
