Plum Alley is the destination site where women entrepreneurs and innovators succeed with crowdfunding, commerce and experts. So, when you shop on Plum Alley, you are directly supporting women entrepreneurship! I can not stay off this site, especially on the female founders area where you can read about each woman's story and the goods that they sell.
Some things on my wishlist:
GC Estate Lavender Honey-Organically grown culinary Lavender "Provence" from the O'Connell Family Vineyard Estate blended with 100 % pure Napa Valley wild honey.
From Gabrielle Leonard, read her bio here
Best In Show Cocktail Napkins
I can't stand how cute these are! Embroidered cocktail napkins with ornate dogs in bright colors.
100% linen. What a great gift this would make.
Kim Seybert's is the designer and her bio is here.
Ebb and Flow Soy Candle
This is an earthy blend with familiar scents of trees and fallen leaves. The ambre boosts with sweetness giving this scent a pleasant finish. It's for the tree hugger in all of us.
From Rupal Bindha, founder of Ebb and Flow-her cool story here
In addition to their commerce site, Plum Alley provides women entrepreneurs and innovators a way to raise money from a broad base of people through crowdfunding. Their crowdfunding platform will be live September 2013. To submit a project, please fill out this form.
Another cool aspect of Plum Alley is they have their finger on the pulse of women who invest in other women and give expert advice. Plum Alley’s panel of experts represents various fields and areas of business needed for success.
