WE BELIEVE

When women support each other, INCREDIBLE things happen.

How WE came about.

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 artisans who want to have a place to display and sell their 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.

M.A.Naber Home Staging
Marci Naber

My love of Interior Design started as far back as I can remember. I was able to look at floor plans and imagine myself living in them as well as what would look amazing where, with regard to decor and floor plan changes. I have spent a great deal of time flipping homes for profit. I also love to breathe new life into worn, old or outdated furniture pieces, through refurbishing furniture. I have several pieces that I have completed and sold as well as pieces that I have refurbished for family and friends, this is what I do for fun!

I have always wanted to own a shop and be able to have a space to work in creatively while refurbishing furniture. I look forward to building this community and having a supportive encouraging environment of Women around me. Please read below about the amazing group of Women that will be represented at WE Shop and the products they are selling.

Bartoo Branding
Debbie Bartoo

My combined experience as a graphic designer, photography dabbler and degree in psychology has led me to specialize in branding. I love to creatively put it all together! That is how Bartoo Branding was started. Weather you’re just starting out or have reached the point of out growing your DIY branding, you deserve a brand and website that serve your goals. As a designer, I also can do digital illustrations, photoshop work, ready to print marketing materials, greeting cards, and most anything you can come up with.

I have been looking for a creative environment to spread my wings, that is why I am very excited to be a part of this shop along with other local women entrepreneurs!

Suzanne D'Aurizio

Hello, my name is Suzanne. I have been pursuing art as a career ever since high school. I attended FLCC for fine arts. I have had artwork of mine in various shops in this local area off and on for the past two decades. I did artwork for the Hunters Hope organization founded by Jim and Jill Kelly. I also have a page for my art related to Bruce Springsteen. I had a huge following from Springsteen fans and I have met Bruce and given him my artwork. I currently have a painting in the Monmouth Historical Museum exhibition about Bruce. Please visit https://www.facebook.com/Springsteen-Sellabrations-476846559510383/ to check it out. 

My art gene comes from my paternal grandfather, Clarence Livingston, a well known Rochester, NY architect in his time. My grandfather was in charge of the architecture in construction of the Eastman Theatre. My father also did a variety of artwork . His brother was in filmmaking for DuPont. So this has been in my blood always.

My current endeavors are in resin casting techniques with mixed media. I have had a lot of customers wanting my ocean themes of resin media. My Facebook page for my art endeavor, Lilly Pad, which features my granddaughter Lilly Barker as the logo portrait.

The Purple Pear Company
Jessica Lynah

Growing up on a small horse farm in Western New York, spending summers exploring the outdoors, and experiencing the beauty of seasons in the Finger Lakes region instilled a lifelong passion and respect for nature. I learned the purity, beauty, and fundamental need for living a life connected to our environment. The desire to design and create has always been a part of my life, as is making a conscious effort to do the best for my body and our earth. 

When I was expecting my first child, I centered my attention not only on the foods going into my body, but also the products I was using on my skin. Seeking out eco-friendly products with truly natural ingredients was a challenge. Being unsatisfied with store bought options lead me to the decision to make my own baby products and eventually other skin care essentials for all ages. I wanted pure and natural goodness for my babies, my friends, and I have a goal of sharing them with families everywhere. 

From a mother’s love, a desire to make a difference, and the help of mother nature, The Purple Pear Company was born.

VASAYO
Paula Samson

I became involved with Vasayo, a global health and wellness company, because I enjoy being part of a natural solution to people’s everyday health issues.  I offer products that support many common symptoms we all suffer from, including: sleep issues, pain and inflammation, brain health, lack of energy, weight control, aging, and vitamin/mineral supplementation.

Are you curious about what CBD is, and most importantly what it isn’t? CBD is short for cannabidiol, and it is naturally occurring in the body already! CBD helps with so many different things, but it is very hard for the body to absorb. My CBD products are patented for being the best to absorb into the body. They are also THC free, which means you get all the benefits of the hemp plant without the psychoactive side effects. These CBD products are grown, processed, and packaged in the USA.

Helping others to improve their overall mental and physical health gives me a sense of purpose and makes my heart happy. All of my products are derived from natural non-GMO ingredients, are free of toxins, chemicals, and fillers, which is very important to me. 

I will keep some products in the store that are available for purchase, but if you want $10 off your purchase and special discounted prices, please order through the websites below.  If you are a vet, you get an extra 10% off all products when you order on-line also.

If you’re curious and would like to talk more, please reach out to me. 

Y'ALL Earrings
Amanda Driscoll

Several years ago I feel in LOVE with leather earrings; the down to earth look, the durability, and the lightweight nature of them spurred an addiction. This is the love that gave birth to Y’ALL Earrings! Y’ALL Earrings are unique, gallery type pieces, that are reasonably priced and accessible for all. I offer designs to accessorize any look, from formal, to casual. I want you to feel LOVELY everyday, without breaking the bank! Y’ALL Earrings are 100% handmade by me: a once upon a time Texan living in NY.  You may notice nods to Texas in my styles, such as product names and descriptions.

Because this all started with me just “playing” with colors and designs, you’ll notice that most of my pieces are very limited in quantity. When you purchase something from Y’ALL, you’re wearing something special that isn’t mass produced. I also guarantee my pieces.

I gladly take custom orders for ANYTHING:  special events, groups, and weddings.  Contact me for more information.
