Yes, there are friends with benefits. Now you can shop with benefits by shopping for a worthy cause and supporting small women-owned businesses.

JWF partnered with some stylish businesses who will donate 20 percent of all sales now through March 14, 2021 with the promo code JWF21.SHOP NOW.

From elegant purses to jewelry, to handknit children’s sweaters to flavorful coffee and spices, there is something for everyone on your shopping list. Here are the names of the partner vendors: Daniella Ortiz, The Elegant Hostess, Chik Monk, M.R.

Mask up Artfully

4 Dec

I’m amazed at some of the creative, artful masks. Not only can you stay safe wearing a mask, you can support local artists and businesses. I’m going to highlight three talented Detroiters, who are making masks.  Not only are they impressive artists, they are also accomplished writers.  I’m proud to say I know them personally.

Karen Buscemi is the founder the Detroit Garment Group (DGG), a registered 501(c)(3) public charity, providing education and opportunities for Michigan’s fashion community. She is also the CEO of Detroit Sewn, a woman-owned small business manufacturing PPE equipment including masks. Detroit Garment Group and Detroit Sewn are keeping people employed while providing a needed service. Please note the vital safety information about mask wearing on the Detroit Sewn website.

Megan Swoyer is a watercolor artist. Her designs are colorful, exuberant and just happy. You can find them on scarves, tea towels, notepads and yes masks. Click here for the 2020 gift guide. 

Dominic Pangborn is best known in Detroit for his men’s ties. But his artistry goes way beyond ties and way beyond Motown. His collections are amazing.  Please check out his website here.  Tote bags, scarves, pocket squares and just some of his creative designs. Here is a photo of a mask and matching scarf. 

These three artists, Karen Buscemi, Megan Swoyer and Dominic Pangborn, all deserve a post written just about them. I will in the future. 

For now, stay safe and mask up!
