Lady Project #WomenOwnedWednesday Marketplace: November 29th

Shop from more than 15 local women-owned businesses at The Arcade during the Lady Project Marketplace and Holiday Guide Celebration! This free event is open to the public on #WomenOwnedWednesday, November 29th, from 5-9 PM. Sample food from lady-owned catering companies, enjoy drinks from New Harvest Coffee & Spirits, take a pic in the photo booth, and get a mini massage in the LPO Lounge! Don’t forget to bring winter outerwear to the organizers of the Buy Nothing Day Coat Drive, who will distribute to those in need. RSVP through Eventbrite, or just show up!
