Chatting with Sandra Delia Higgins, owner of Oropa
OROPA opened last April on Earth Day. We focus on socially conscious and eco-friendly products so our customers can feel good about their purchases. We have a positive and friendly vibe, a bright space with an interesting product selection that makes OROPA a fun place to shop.
How do you choose items for the shop?
I was told to buy what I like and so far it’s worked out. I love to find companies that are making the world a better place with their products. For example, Love Your Melon hats gives back to kids with cancer, and Ajiri Tea donates 100 percent of its profits to orphans in Kenya. It’s hard not to feel good about that.
What is one thing that people may not know about your shop?
Many of our first-time customers are pleasantly surprised to discover that we have a little café upstairs. We offer delicious coffees and tea, 100 percent crushed fruit smoothies and Kombucha on tap. It’s a great place to relax with a friend or get some work done using our free Wi-Fi.
