Feminist Flea is hosting an online auction selling goods from local small businesses on Thursday with all proceeds going to the Philadelphia Center Against Sexual Violence, a nonprofit better known as WOAR.

The auction items, which include jewelry, tea, candles, clothing, artwork and more, were donated by more than 25 of the vendors who were scheduled to sell their goods at the Feminist Flea Market at Bok in March before it was canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis.
