The Seven Sisters store in the Fred Nackerman home just north
of Four Corners opened for the season on April 22nd. Although
only two of the sisters are directly involved (Sheila Evans and
Cindy Ricksgers), the others have provided guidance and advice.
store has four criteria for selecting merchandise: primarily,
it must be good; beyond that, it must look beautiful on the shelf,
it must be affordable, and its creation has to have done as little
harm to the environment as possible (including the use of recyclable
packaging.) In addition, some of the products are from womens
groups in such countries as Guatemala, so purchasing them will
help the artisans move towards achieving something that's only
a dream for most of their friends: self-sufficiency.
Besides the helpful lines of kitchen, garden, and bath items,
the work of several local artists will be on display; so far Pam
O'Brien, Jean Kinsley, Linda McDonough, Lois Stipp, and Ray Matela
have joined the cast.
