Reckon Women Premium 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 premium curation, $75. In this box you’ll find seven items from these women:
- Recipe cards by Rachel Lackey, Green Pea Press. Lackey fell in love with printmaking in college but had no presses after she graduated. So, she founded her own all-women studio that operates inside Lowe Mill in Huntsville.
- Socks from Gina Locklear, Zkano. Locklear didn’t plan to go into the family sock-making business. But her desire for sustainability and love of her north Alabama roots drew her back to Fort Payne, where she came up with her own sock spin and founded zkano.
- An 8"x10" art print by Lynthia Edwards, Black G.R.I.T.S. Edwards, a multimedia artist based in Birmingham, uses color in her collages inspired by Black womanhood and the South to represent her bright spirit. Her artist name, Black G.R.I.T.S, is an acronym for Black girl raised in the South to do what she loved.
- 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.
