ETHICAL SHOPPING AT ITS FINEST

11AM-6PM

I am a poet

of the lake,

poetess, actually.

My hands gather 

her fossil bones-

the calcium 

drinks my fingertips

chalking them

white with dust.

My heart is here

although storms

never come-

just rain, anymore.

What if I drank

too much whiskey

one night

and then told the lake

that I was her

poetess forever.

Would she 

reflect me differently-

a stranger forever?

Bah,

I can't care.

The storm passes us by

again

and I am still

and ever

your poetess

and stranger.

OUR VISION

there has to be a place we start

somewhere we are allowed to

be curious and be curious

a place where women matter

a place of tenderness and conscience

a place for new voices and the natural world

a place whose purpose is to reveal the beauty

and magic in each of us

a place with a heart and a soul and

a mind for change

there has to be a place we start

to be the people our world needs

more healers and dreamers

more makers and menders and believers

there has to be a place we start

so let it be here.

OUR MISSION

It is our aim to grow our region’s access to natural, ethically made and traded goods by creating and maintaining a retail environment where openness, equality, sustainability and representation matters.

OUR HOPE

It is our hope that your experience with
Poetess and Stranger 
is magical and empowering. 
"An' it harm none"
