Branching out: Shop Local VA at the New Treehouse Marketplace 

 In RT Blog

Featuring local female artisans and entrepreneurs

By: April Horency

At Rowan Tree we believe we are stronger when we work together to support one another. Business Insider agrees, “By helping support the women around you, you can promote the growth of female-owned companies.”

We are excited to add the Treehouse Marketplace as our way of supporting and elevating even more local female small business owners. It is our intention to cultivate a diverse, inclusive, and unique shop that celebrates all different types of products, experiences, and people. Discover one of a kind products that we absolutely love and know you will too. 

Entrepreneur and Artisan Shop

We officially open our doors in Herndon, VA on April 22nd with products from over 25 local Virginia artisans and female entrepreneurs! The store will be open for browsing and shopping Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, or buyers have the option to shop online at anytime and pick up at Rowan Tree.

Whether it means working directly beside each other at a desk during one of Rowan Tree’s Cogrowth Cohorts or coming together and selling beautifully finished works of art and publications, women are stronger together. Rowan Tree believes in the power of community and sisterhood and this is yet another way to elevate and provide opportunity to those around us. As Phylicia Rashad said, “Anytime women come together with a collective intention, magic happens.” And there is definitely magic happening everyday at the Treehouse!

A Unique Gift Experience in Herndon

The Treehouse Marketplace will be the perfect spot to scoop up a last minute gift item for an event, celebrating a big win for a friend, or finding a unique client gift. Some of our artisans include:

  • Ceramicists
  • Jewelry makers
  • Authors
  • Handmade soap makers
  • Knitters
  • Book binders
  • And more!

Come shop handmade, unique, locally crafted goods and publications and support historically marginalized small business owners on their journey. 

Note: All products will be purchased using our online store. We will regularly add products and artists so check back frequently. While the shop is focused on female entrepreneurs, and those who identify as female, all are welcome to shop or apply to showcase goods in the marketplace.
