10 Local Women-Owned Brands to Shop for Women’s History Month + Every Other Month!

Mar 22, 2021

NAB is a woman-owned business and we definitely understand the importance of showing appreciation to our fellow women bosses! Although NAB aims to inspire you to shop local, this month we're hoping to inspire you to also support women-owned businesses and show appreciation for the ladies that are holding it down. We're dedicating our March blog posts to highlighting the businesses and brands you need to know and this is part two (of three) that you can expect to see on the site this month (see Part 1 here).  Read on about special finds we've discovered, whether curated, hand crafted or designed, all items mentioned are brought to you by talented local women to whom we say- Thank You!

Just a fleeting thought of the Tuck Shop triggers an instant desire for a sweet fix. Fresh blueberry scones, s'mores cookies, chocolate covered honeycomb, washed down with a warm tea or creamy latte... We've also been obsessing over the thought of Spring arrivals, particularly flowy loose dresses and kaftans. We're hearing from Alicia Tucker more and more about slow fashion. Dresses made by hand using sustainable fabrics by artisans around the world. This Spring, stop by and say hello. Ask Alicia about Tuck Shop's signature line of Kaftans and browse the selection of goods at the back of the store before indulging in treats up front. Pick out a gift for someone special, or maybe just a little something for yourself. It's become a weekly addiction for us.

Limestone & Cedar

Categories: #candles #natural #soy #essentialoils #choosebda

It's the simple things in life that we've grown to make time for over the past year, like coming home and lighting our favourite candles to enjoy during our evening routine. Nina Froncioni looks to Bermuda's natural environment and heritage for inspiration when curating her candle collection and anyone who's lit a candle of their own raves about the quality and craftsmanship of recycled amber bottles, cotton wicks and cork lids. Never run out with a 3 month subscription! We love this idea, each month you'll receive two seasonal scented soy candles (regular and mini). How brilliant and a great way to try all of the scents over time. This doubles as a perfect gift idea for that someone special.

Inspiration flows from colours and patterns unique to Bermuda for Rebecca Singleton who is widely known and admired for re-inventing Bermuda Shorts and taking them to a whole new level for men and women. One of our favourite things about Rebecca is that she empowers fellow artists and small brand creators by featuring them inside her store and online under the title local loves. We adore her her slip dresses and split pants, ideal for Spring and Summer feels. Have a look at the unique prints available, she is forever taking her designs to another level while keeping Bermuda grounded within. We can't wait to see what's next.

Bermuda's newest trendy treat created by Rickeisha Burgess, will have you tied in a knot trying to decide which flavour to settle on. Look out for her concession stands inside Washington Mall and at Royal Naval Dockyard. Ohhh and let us not forget about Harbour Nights - you can find Dutch Pops there too this summer and possibly other locations. Most recently we indulged in Dutch Pop hot chocolate sticks, not quite sure we will ever really enjoy a regular hot chocolate again... Frozen treat favourites include the Fruitful Pop with Kiwi, Strawberry, Mango, Grape, Pineapple, Lemon and Raspberry and there is one that looks like cheesecake... It's called the Bermuda Sand Pop and it is to die for... You can special order here and thank us later for the experience!
