Welcome, Tía - Stylish Gifts for Sweet Occasions
Welcome, Tía is now completely open! If you're an avid blog reader, you'll remember that a few weeks ago, I launched Welcome, Tía, an offshoot of With a Flourish dedicated to providing eco-friendly, fair-trade, local gifts and favours for weddings.
Well, the night that we put the Welcome, Tía website online, my husband and I were watching a Seth Godin talk. During the talk, he explained a concept called "conscious capitalism" which is doing good while doing business. Sam and I talked about how we could do good with Welcome, Tía, and the idea came to give gifts to Osborne House Inc., for them to give a woman there. Osborne House Inc. is a Winnipeg shelter for women and their children, and I will dedicate a full post to them in the next little while. So, since then we've met with Osborne House Inc., and come up with a system to provide gifts to them while still making a profit (we are trying to feed our family, after all) and keep the prices reasonable for our customers.
We also created two more boxes and redesigned the website. I hope you like it! I would love any feedback you may have, please contact me here. More information is coming about Osborne House Inc., and products in the boxes.
