“Two women, both entrepreneurs born and raised in Philadelphia, have opened shops near where they were raised.
Sam Shaw’s Treatery is a culinary and home goods shop that also bakes cookies fresh onsite daily.
Samantha Shaw is a Society Hill native and former tennis pro who recently turned in the racket for opening a space where she curates handmade goods and culinary delights she herself enjoys, including original-recipe Koffmeyer’s Cookies.
Yowie is another shop nearby, specializing in design-forward art objects for the home and more.
Shannon Maldonado has been into fashion since she was a child growing up in South Philly, going to Fabric Row with her mother to buy materials to make clothing and costumes for years.
She turned her eye for design into a corporate career, and now curates a collection at her own shop.”
