The “Espatulas Rosadas” Women’s Co-op is a group of 20 local women who joined together to work and make their lives better, even in small ways. They are dedicated to creating their own designs and products and are united in their desire to work and to share their successes. They consider themselves more than a co-op, they consider themselves a family.  They make a variety of hand-made jewelry and crafts.  Business profits are divided: 50% to the artist; 20% to the co-op; 30% to replenish materials.  Come out and support this economic development project!
