Bridal shop gives back for tenth anniversary

KINGSTON – Traditional tenth-anniversary gifts might involve tin or aluminum – known for their longevity and resilience. But for its anniversary, Lovebird Bridal Boutique has decided on something that’s even longer lasting: supporting local small businesses and charities.

“Lovebird Bridal Boutique has been in business for ten years,” said Michelle Pilon, Owner, Lovebird Bridal Boutique. “In this time, we have been welcomed into and received so much support from our amazing local community. Now it’s time for us to continue to spread that love and give back! It is our goal to offer support specifically to those working to aid and uplift women here in the Kingston Area.”

To do this, Lovebird has partnered up with other female-owned small businesses, such as Artizen Oils and The Studio on Waverly, to create a line of charity-oriented retail products. These products, including items such as essential oils, signature candle, and handmade clay earrings, may be purchased in-store or online.

“We’re extremely excited to take part of this important initiative. It is important to empower and support women, and resources such as the Kingston Interval House are integral in strengthening our community,” said Isabelle Desnoyers, Owner/Creator, Artizen Oils.

Throughout 2022, a portion of the proceeds from these charitable items will be donated to Kingston Interval House (KIH), a local agency that provides essential, responsive, and empowering services to women, children and youth who have experienced the impact of violence against women.

KIH’s services include emergency shelter services, transitional programs, second-stage housing, community-based outreach and support services, and community engagement and capacity building. They work towards changing the structural and broader social, political, and economic circumstances that render women and their children vulnerable to gender-based violence and other forms of oppression.

“Kingston Interval House (KIH) is proud to partner with this group of female business owners in our community,” said Pam Havery, Executive Director, Kingston Interval House (KIH). “The funds raised through this initiative will directly benefit the women, children and youth that we serve. It is partnerships such as this that help us get one step closer to a future where violence against women no longer exists.”
