Women making history

Starting and owning a small, local business in this economy is a tricky business.

But Gloucester has a number of women who have navigated the shoals successfully and several of them will be featured in a panel discussion next Thursday night from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Sawyer Free Library.

The panel is being presented in honor of Women’s History Month and will highlight women who have made history locally.

The five panelists participating have each started a successful, local business and offer a wide variety of experience and expertise. They are:

Hallie Baker, owner of Turtle Alley chocolates, who has built a fine reputation among chocolatiers and has now opened locations in both Gloucester and Salem.

Kathleen Erickson, owner of Savour Wine and Cheese, has had to overcome major setbacks with a 2011 fire which destroyed her two-month old business. Savour is now experiencing a successful recovery in its new location on Prospect Street.

Anne Marie Crotty and Cynthia Roth, owners of Flatrocks Gallery, will also join the panel. Flatrocks Gallery specializes in collections by established and emerging local artists.

Barbara Koen, who owns The Dress Code, a local consignment shop consistently ranked as one of the best in the area.
