Wyllo at the SoWa Market hosted a candle-making session with Good Karma Candle and Girlfriends Boston on March 13, 2022. 

Wyllo, owned by Alyssa Davis, carries a curated collection of small-batch clothing, accessories, art, and gifts sourced directly from independent designers, artists, and local makers including over 50 women-owned brands. 

Ana Baptista is the CEO of Girlfriends Boston, a community-building platform that creates a platform for women to support and befriend each other. 

Meaghan Keenan, the founder of Good Karma Candle, led the candle-making session on Sunday. For each candle sold, $1 will go to the Boys & Girls Club of Boston.
