Supporting Women-owned Businesses this March and Beyond

Mar 9, 2022

March is known for being the first month of Spring, but it is also known as Women’s history month. It is set to honor the achievements that women have made throughout history. During the month of March (and beyond), we can celebrate these accomplishments by supporting female-owned businesses, especially right here in Baltimore.

Here are our top recommendations for women-owned businesses in Baltimore, all not too far from your home here at Anthem House: 

Emma Canoles from Emma’s Tea Spot uses her business to connect people to nature through food and tea. Her shop hosts events for people to attend, such as classes, movie nights, and children’s activities. The menu boasts soups, salads, sandwiches, and, yes, tea, made from scratch, using local ingredients. 

Cosmetologists Krysta Embardino and Liz Gondeck run Revelry Hair Studio with the idea of quality over quantity. They offer job opportunities to high school students, donate to school fundraisers, and run events that benefit nonprofits and their communities.

At Limonata Creative’s Prop Up Shop, Giulietta Pinna offers prop and set stylist services, including art direction, mood board creation, brand visual consulting, and more! Giulietta has worked with fine art galleries and sales before leaving and pursuing her dream of storytelling through visuals.

Former Top Chef contestant and Baltimore native Jesse Sandlin runs her own American Tavern, Sally O’s. The establishment has a bright bohemian atmosphere paired with a menu filled with American cuisine.

Back in 2007, owner Kelley Heuisler opened up her own department store, named after her sister who inspired her to pursue her dreams, and her own Californian roots. The goal for Poppy and Stella is to help everyone find something that lets them feel amazing at an affordable price.

The SoBotanical apothecary and aromatherapy are run by Theresa Cangialosi, who has been in the business for thirty years, helping to keep purity and quality a top priority in her field. She has also opened one of the first aromatherapy bars in the United States and an aromatherapy education facility.

Opened back in 1989, Pierpoint Restaurant has hosted both dinner and award cooking classes for children and adults since 2002. Prior to opening the restaurant, Chef Nancy Longo has worked for Billy Joel and on the set of the movie Liberty Heights.

In historic Fells Point, the Blue Moon Cafe is run by conceptionista Sarah Simington who has traveled the country to perfect her skills. Her breakfast food is something that she strived for everyone to experience with playfulness and discovery. 

Teavolve is an award-winning cafe where they serve a large assortment of beverages, including boba, tea, coffee, and a menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their goal is to be a place that is memorable for upholding good experiences, supported by their open mic events where local artists can pursue their passion.

The Future is Female

We hope you are able to support these female-owned Baltimore businesses during Women’s History Month and throughout the year.
