STella & THrone Soapery
Celebrating The skin you're in
COVID-19 cases continue to rise, our beloved Saturday markets remain closed, and small businesses are shutting their doors in droves! But what if there was another way?! Another way to save our cherished small businesses, and bring back the soulful vibe of our Saturday market strolls?!
"Birthed" with the purpose of promoting female small (and micro) businesses, Stella & Throne Soapery's Virtual Market provides a new platform for black female small business owners to display their gifts to the world. The market is FREE and open to ALL! Log on and enjoy live musical performances and artisan finds of all kinds.
There are many ways to support our mission! Sign up to be a vendor, preform (music, spoken word poetry) or provide behind the scenes virtual volunteer support. We also accept donations. All donations are used to help support our cause by allowing for the growth of our virtual market platform. Through our platform's expansion we will be able to celebrate, support, patron, and grow more black owned businesses!

"...May's show was amazing! No where else do you have the opportunity to virtually engage with vendors (in real time!) and purchase their products via their websites. I loved the variety of artisan finds!
