After working for others in the retail arena for 28 years, and in the rescue community and vegan advocacy movement for 8 years, Becca needed a creative outlet for her passion for animals and the planet that would also generate income for her rescue work and align with her personal ethics. This shop is the culmination of that.
At Gentle Goods you will find a carefully curated selection of goods crafted with compassion. The shop will feature handmade, up-cycled, fair trade, organic, vegan creations from folk art to paper goods to wearable art to lotions and potions, books, and even vegan pet food taste-tested and approved by our foster dogs.
We will feature local artisans' work along with carefully hand-picked merchandise made in the USA, locally made crafts alongside ethically produced fair trade items from compassionate creative people across the globe.
You will find the best Italian made vegan shoes and also a lending library of gently worn vegan literature and cookbooks. You may see some consigned soft goods and art from vegan artisans. You may even meet a friendly foster dog or arrange a meet and greet with adoptable animals from other local no kill rescues.
This will be a gathering space for noted advocates from the vegan movement, a cozy spot for potlucks, tastings, and book signings. We want this to be a community meeting space and gathering of minds for local vegans and newcomers to the region or to vegan.
