ARTISANS & VENDORS

Join us on Saturday, November 3rd for Embrujadas - a #womxnfronted 'daytime' taking place from 12-4PM at The Empty Bottle. We'll share stories meant to empower, encourage and support one another while enjoying musical performances, networking, learning about the work of others through a panel featuring local chingonas, as well as featuring local artisans and vendors. We'll have a special gratitude altar (feel free to bring your own small memento for display), discuss the ancestral roots of some of the healing rituals we continue to practice today and feature 'platicas' related to self-care. The event's intention is to share embrujadas - healing practices - in support of one another, as impetus for ongoing female-fronted events and as a goal for a 2019 Embrujadas Festival.

The first 20 attendees will receive a complimentary flower for use in the rose cleansing in Olin's Healing Collective's 'Healing Room'
