After winning an illinois competition for the best business plan in northern Illinois the local organization Womanspace webuts what it has done with it's winnings.
Womanspace's goal is tro try and enrich people's lives. They offer things like painting and meditation classes. Plus, have beautiful gardens and a special labyrinth to walk through. Back in May the organization won six-thousand dollars. With that money their small gift gallery literally came out of the closet and expanded into this galler-two-go. A space for members and artists to display and sell their work.
"It's a great way to come and support Womanspace because it is a consignment store, we receive 40% of the purchase price and then it's also a great way to support local artists while you're getting a very unique and wonderful item to either give as a gift or perhaps for yourself, " said Gale Ketteler, Womanspace Rockford.
We can stop by that gallery Monday-through-Friday nine AM to five PM. Womanspace is localted on Maria Linden drive in Rockford. While you're there check out the back garden or the amazing labyrinth…just head through the woods and you'll see the markers.
