If you haven't been to the newest sex toy store in Tucson, Jellywink Boutique, then you are missing out, people. The store, owned by Ally Booker, is off Fourth Avenue at 418 E. 7th St. and is a great community, sex positive, queer friendly resource for everyone. I've been there twice and have yet to see Booker wince or balk at any question or comment thrown her way.
She's community minded, too.
Throughout the month of December, the store will do a charity gift wrap for a $5 donation or more with proceeds going to Youth On Their Own.
If folks haven’t yet checked out Tucson’s new woman and GLBTQI-friendly sexuality resource center and shop- Jellywink Boutique- the month of December would be a great time to do so because we are wrapping gifts in exchange for donations that will be going to Youth on Their Own (YOTO)- a non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless teens graduate high school and continue down a successful path. Also, we have items that would make great gifts! ;)
The charity wrapping is happening at Jellywink Boutique (c) throughout the entire month of December during regular business hours.* Shoppers can get their gifts wrapped in exchange for a suggested donation of $5 (or more for those in the giving spirit who want to help out teens that don’t have a home of their own). Also, on Saturday, December 20th from 12p-6p, with the help of Summer Disney, we will set up outside the shop so that passerby 4th Ave shoppers can get to donate and get their gifts wrapped, too.
While Jellywink is an 18 and over space and YOTO services teens 21 and under, we share some basic values that include education, empowerment, and respect. Jellywink is a safe and non-judgmental space to learn and explore aspects of sexuality and product use & safety. We have a diverse selection of books, lubes, tasteful toys, supplies for various segments of the GLBTQI community, a clean environment, and Ally Booker- the knowledgeable and friendly shop keeper that is happy to guide you!
*Regular store hours are:
Tues-Thurs 12p-8p/Fri-Sat 12p-10p/Sun 12p-6p/Closed Mondays
Also by appointment!
