The Lemonade Boutique
We invite ordinary women to become extraordinary world changers through purchasing our clothing with a cause. Our clothes and accessories are made by women facing extreme challenges such as human trafficking, abuse, addiction, disabilities, disease, extreme poverty, and more. We help these women take life’s lemons and make lemonade. We believe in holistic healing driven by fair and sustainable employment.
How It Works
Step 1: An artisan group (a company, non-profit, collective, or charity) hires women facing an extreme challenge. They train them and pay them fairly for their craft. They also support them with their emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual needs through care and counseling. Programs vary from group to group.
Step 2: We partner with the artisan group. Before we partner with them we do our research to make sure the group is transparent and actually cares for the women who work for them. Then we pay them. We buy all of our products in full upfront so that the women can get paid for their work as soon as possible!
Step 3: We bring the products to you! We show you how amazing they are, where they came from, and who made them. You fall in love with the items and the mission behind them.
Step 4: You bring home the items you love. You wear them and love them and can’t stop thinking about your amazing purchase that looks good and does good. You tell your friends about the women who made it and the shop you got it from ;) Through your purchase, you enable us to support more women.
Step 5: Rinse & Repeat.
Hey! I’m Christine Sandberg and this is my husband, Adam. We’re passionate laugh-aholics who call Minnesota home.
We believe in helping people where they are at so that they can become the person who they were created to be. We believe that a job changes everything. When you’re given a good job you now have the tools and the means to fuel your own dreams.
Proverbs 13:12 “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.”
I’m Christine and it’s my joy to see my dream of working for myself, helping women, and investing in the future come to life. I started The Lemonade Boutique and I want to say Thank You for your support and belief in me. Thank you.
