Reckon Women Curation Box
Welcome to our first curation of creations by Alabama women whose stories illustrate the grit, innovation and creativity we admire in each of you. Inside these curations, you’ll find a collection of diverse stories and perspectives that are etched in the items selected personally by the Reckon Women team.
Reckon Women curation, $25. In this box you’ll find four items from inspiring Alabama women:
- A wooden succulent created by Jacqueline McMillian of Love by JM. McMillian is a self-taught wood-carving artist who learned her craft from YouTube videos after having her hands and feet amputated because of sepsis.
- Soap from Soapy Jones, Left Hand Soap Company. Short on cash after college, Jones made soap as Christmas gifts for family and friends, eventually turning her hobby into a storefront business in Tuscaloosa.
- A relaxation roller-ball by Natasha McCrary, 1818 Farms. McCrary turned a family passion project into a thriving flower farm, event space and source of ingredients for an organic bath and body product line that earned her the title of “America’s “Woman-Owned Small Business of the Year” from Amazon in 2019.
- A 5"x7" art print by Abbey Crain, artist and reporter. Crain, a Reckon Women reporter, grew her artistic talent into painting and body-image conversations, helping women see themselves as art.
