MWBC excitedly welcomed its latest cohort into the MWBC Shop Local Retail Incubator program on January 1, 2023! Through the program, MWBC will work with these talented businesswomen as they continue on their entrepreneurial journey.  

Throughout the course of the year, these local, women-owned businesses will explore the nuances of brick and mortar sales as they operate their retail enterprises out of MWBC Shop Local, located in Rockville Town Square. While running their businesses, these women entrepreneurs will also receive incredible amounts of free support to help grow their business and their entrepreneurial skills, including:

  • valuable business training
  • coaching and guidance from MWBC business consultants 
  • sales and business growth strategies
  • networking opportunities
  • access to investors, and in some cases, working capital in the form of a loan or grant from local resources
  • recognition and marketing from MWBC and its partners.

Follow all of MWBC’s Shop Local activities on Instagram and be sure to support these wonderful, women-owned businesses.  Let’s meet the latest Shop Local Sellers:

Fully Bloomed
Owner: Distinee

Fully Bloomed is a woman- and black-owned wellness brand based out of Maryland. Their mission and goal are to curate products surrounding rituals in the self-care realm. From journals to eco-accessories and spirituality tools – they provide everything you need to bloom to your fullest potential! There are moments in time when you find something that inspires. It may be a simple quote cited, a passage read, or a discussion with a friend. Then there are those that don’t change the world but do impress. It could be a simple product improvement, or something beautifully made from unwanted items.

Owner: Beth

in-jeen-yuhs began while Beth was on vacation with her family in the mountains of Oregon. She met a woman social worker turned artist who made artistically designed and beautifully executed totes, cross-body bags and zippered pouches from plastic bags. Otherwise destined for the landfill, she infused her creativity and love of art and sewing by transforming a product with a purpose. If one artist was creatively repurposing what would otherwise be discarded, why not others? in-jeen-yuhs is a place to find creative, artistically crafted repurposed, uncommon, green, and ingeniously made wares for everyday use.

Additional MWBC Shop Local Retail Entrepreneurs


Acid Jayne Design
Owner: Jayne 

I’ve always wanted to help people. In my previous career as a social worker, my goal was to help people accept, embody, and express who they genuinely are, regardless of what the world thinks. Through Acid Jayne, I’ve been able to continue that mission by providing people with a way to communicate what is inside themselves through wearable, usable art. I love combining different shapes, colors, and accents to create beautiful, fun, functional pieces that, like acid rain, leave a lasting impact on their environment. I hope to use my own creative journey to inspire others to share and celebrate who they really are.

Owner: Diana 

As a mother of 3 children and founder and CEO of PEACENIKCO, I started my shop as a hobby after having my daughter, Daniella. I love designing and adding new products to the store. I wanted to share my love for hand-crafted things with others. I love creating real pieces to add a unique touch to your home and everyday life. I am passionate about using the highest quality materials and partnering with ethical companies to provide you with the best products. I love neutral colors to create bohemian-inspired products. Everything I make is done with lots of love and gratitude.
