Local women-owned businesses?

six dollars a five and a oneJulia messages:

Hi there! Do you know if anyone has ever compiled a list of women-owned businesses around the Albany area? Looking for people to support today (and every day!), and it occurred to me that it'd be great to have a list to reference!

We got a similar question this week from Melissa via Twitter.

This a wide-angle question and could include many types of businesses. Got some favorite local women-owned business? We'd love to hear about them.

Are you the owner of such a business? Please don't hesitate to mention it.

From our Facebook status today:
Wednesday 3/8 is International Women's Day. We'd like to honor women and all they do by extending our Happy Hour to all of our female friends for the entire evening. Can't make it to our place? Support another woman-owned local business - Umama, New World Bistro Bar, Cafe 217, McGeary's, Yono's or perhaps another that I failed to mention.

Go buy something amazing from Elissa Halloran Designs at 229 Lark St!

Love this. Here is one of my favorites....

Theresa Hovish Van Duyne of T&J Soaps on River Street in Troy is a a wonderful lady, a long time family friend, and a huge supporter of small business and women owned business in her Troy community. A former school art teacher, she started making soaps in her living room, which turned into an etsy shop, and a brick and morter business. You can still buy her awesome smelling handcrafted soaps online here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TandJsoaps

Otherwise, please please please give all your money to Psychedelicatessan bagels in downtown Troy. That's what I want for dinner.

My sister and I are based in Albany and have an Etsy shop called MooreWarmth.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
