When you shop at Champagne Apothecary, you are doing more good than you might know!
Champagne Apothecary was established in 2019 after Amber decided her life in the corporate sector was too stressful.
Knowing that people don’t focus on self-care as much as they should, Amber set out to create a business that would help remind people of the importance of self care.
Champagne Apothecary's mission is to help people live abundant lives of self-care full of one of a kind moments and treasures.
Here are some of the things we believe in as a business and want you to know you are helping to contribute to every time you shop with us.
1. We value people over profit.
We encourage members of our community to stop in the shop anytime; even if they just need a moment to recalibrate. While we would love for you to take something home every time you stop in, we cherish that we are able to offer a safe, peaceful, self-care space for those who need it; even for a just a moment.
2. We believe in loving on and actively participating in our community.
We donate up to 10% of our proceeds every year to local non-profit organizations. In 2021 alone, we were able to donate almost $10,000 to support local youth, cancer patients, and animal shelters among other causes!
So far this year, we have already donated an additional $9,000 to community organizations including CHD's Cancer House of Hope, Whip City Animal Sanctuary, Stanley Park, the Westfield Boys & Girls Club, Westfield Cheer, the Westfield Farmer's Market, Westfield Little League via the Matthew Osienski Annual Fundraiser, numerous Westfield School's PTOs, and so many more. Plus, we have yet to make our year end donations!
We also practice what we preach by investing in our community and the communities of our customers around the nation by carefully curating our shop's products from and supporting local vendors, artisans, and businesses who have shared values.
We make consistent efforts towards sustainability.
We reuse packaging, are as paperless as possible, donate unused items, offer discounts for using our annual eco-friendly bags, and more!
We support brands and offer as many options as possible that are Vegan, Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, Paraben Free. Fragrance Free, Not on Amazon, and Made in the US.
Our skincare line, ETHYST®, was specifically developed to be Gluten Free, Paraben Free, Fragrance Free, Cruelty Free, Vegan, Made in the USA, and is not available on Amazon.
Additionally, we specifically look to support other small businesses - in Westfield and beyond - who align with these values through our small business (many of whom are women owned!).
We value that the meaning of self-care is very personal.
We believe self-care should be done in the ways you feel are right for you. Champagne Apothecary is a treasure shop bursting with self-care items to help you and those you love make time in your day for some simple self love.
Whether it's a special cup of coffee or tea in the morning, a unique puzzle, book, or game that helps you hop into a fun, colorful world for a few moments, or a skincare routine to help you destress at the end of your day, we have something just for you and truly special gifts for those you love.
We live for helping people de-stress and appreciate the little things.
Through scent, sound, sight, touch, taste and the experience of our shop and everything that lies within, we're devoted to looking for ways to lead you to an enchanting place of self-care and peace.
We hope you're transcended to this same place, when you're back at home each time you reach for your new treasure from our shop. And even on the days you don't take something new home, we want just stopping in for a moment to feel like a little gift of self-care.
Thank you for taking the time to read about how you're making a difference in your community through partnering with and supporting us! We hope you feel really good about joining us in our efforts. We couldn't do any of this without you!
