The SHOP is a social enterprise that was opened to economically empower members of our women's group, Mujeres Aactivas de Potrero (MAP), which makes sewn goods such as hand and yoga bags. We also use our storefront to support other local artisans, selling their goods- jewelry, paintings, etc- to make an even larger impact on the local economy. This social enterprise is a vehicle to enhance the livelihoods, life skills and relationships of the women of Potrero. Each and every item is handcrafted with a unique design, manifested from both the women's creativity and the fact that our products are made of donated fabrics that would have otherwise been thrown away. All sales revenues are either reinvested into the project or paid out to the women, increasing their monthly income and helping them to further provide for their families. To learn more about MAP check out our listed Facebook page or company website.

Abriendo Mendes is a local non profit that educates local children, men and women so they can find jobs. The Shop sells crafts made by women from the immediate area. Erin, the shop manager can tell you all about the organization and help you choose items for your friends and family. Also, you can enjoy a delicious meal across the street at Sol y Mar!
