"Your silence will not protect you." Audre Lorde
In recognition of International Women's Day!
We love our Ptown community and especially happy with our home across from Womencrafts and Michelle Axelson. We share Michelle's passion in recognizing the importance of safe spaces and how their continuing existence is far from obsolete. The last four years only highlighted the need for feminist, queer, safe spaces. There is so much work to be done as we strive to create a truly just, safe, equitable, world for all.
"Womencrafts is a Feminist/lesbian book and gift shop. EST. 1976 at the tip of Cape Cod; hand crafted, ethical, socially conscious work of over 90 female artisans. Womencrafts is located at the tip of Cape Cod, nestled in the heart and soul of Provincetown, MA.
We are women-owned and operated, and for over three decades our loyal customers have considered us a primary source for jewelry, pottery, gifts, lesbian/feminist literature, music, DVDs and more. All of our jewelry, pottery and gifts are hand-crafted by women. We help support well over 100 women artists and artisans from Maine to Hawaii, and now Canada as well."
Adam's Nest is closed through the 15th, but the show will be up at least through March and Womencrafts is open Saturdays and Sundays; 11am-4pm.
We are grateful for the women who speak truth to power. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been a breath of fresh air and we admire her voice and unending commitment to making change and being a voice for the marginalized. We cannot understate the appreciation for all the customers who support small business and share us on social media; you are invaluable for increasing our reach and helping us build our communities and really have gotten some amazing faces we admire into our feeds. This from Christine, "Great compliments and messages today on the shirt I wore with @aoc today in Vieques Puerto Rico. It is from @adamsnest a small business in Provincetown, Massachusetts that supports many causes." Christine is wearing our collaboration with Revolution Art Shop that supports Planned Parenthood.
In recognition of women's history month, you can get 25% off all tees and sweatshirts supporting Planned Parenthood with code: WOMEN during the month of March.
