Exciting things are happening for the holiday season at MWBC! Our newest brick and mortar incubator store is open in Union Station in Washington, DC – shopHER features artisan made goods from local female entrepreneurs from Maryland and DC. You can find colorful and unique items such as clothing, jewelry, home goods, scents, candles and more at this location on the Mezzanine Level of Union Station. We want to thank our partner the DC Women’s Business Center for helping make this happen.

We also are open for the holidays and year-round at our sister store, Shop Local, in Rockville Town Center. This unique store features women-made goods – everything from chocolates and other candies to jackets, home goods, jewelry and other unique items. 

Support these local businesses and the female entrepreneurs behind them. The stores will both be open daily throughout the holiday shopping season, and on Small Business Saturday, November 27. 

We also are promoting something new this year – an online Holiday Gift Guide featuring gifts you can purchase online. We are sponsoring this gift guide with the Latino Economic Development Center and its program Empowered Women International. This guide will be released in mid-November and will be ready for your online holiday gift shopping needs! Find unique items created by women entrepreneurs in our local area.

On December 2, our Frederick office is hosting a special Holiday Gift Market networking session online at 10:00 am.  Local vendors will be presenting their goods for holiday shopping, with discount offers.
