Mikki Lessard and Nancy Feth of Simply Grace, LLC are the visionary founders of the newest retail-tainment district and destination in the Valley: The Shops at Marketplace.

The local women owned businesses of the Shops at Marketplace have agreed to contribute 20% of sales from their boutique on May 1 to The Women’s Fund of Western MA. We’ve asked Mikki and Nancy to tell us why they’re supporting the Women’s Fund on May 1, 2018 – Valley Gives Day.

“Our intention is to mindfully collaborate and support the positive economic development and urban renaissance being revealed – with socially conscious, contemporary retail-tainment solutions for those who work, live and play in downtown Springfield. Our shops Simply Serendipity, Dharma Yoga, and newly opened Brick & Mortar offer beautifully curated products, services and experiences to heal the heart of humanity.

Mindfully we have chosen to partner with The Women’s Fund of Western, MA to support life changing work with organizations that support women’s empowerment, leadership and systemic change. We believe when women support each other incredible things happen…The Women’s Fund consistently demonstrates commitment to a larger vision of women in leadership –  active and engaged in community at large. Their work locally fuels global systemic change.

We are honored to contribute to the 2018 Valley Gives program with 20% of sales from our boutique on May 1 to be donated to The Women’s Fund of Western MA. Stop by The Shops at Marketplace during the day and meet representatives from The Women’s Fund or join us after work for a little nosh and sips and support this powerful work. We look forward to meeting you!”
