Last week we had the great opportunity of selling in the west coast. The Artists & Fleas takes over a spot in Downtown Los Angeles, and invites local and national vendors to come and sell. We were in town and decided to stop by. :)
This year we were so honored to be invited to sell at the KIVA ZIP Launch Party in New York City. With the help of KIVA we were able to participate of multiple holiday markets in 2015, the biggest one being Union Square Holiday Market. The event featured around 20 other business owners showcasing their products/company services. Most of them were still in the funding stage of their loans, so the event was a great opportunity for them to reach out to customers to explain their products and to convert them into lenders.
The special guest for the night was former president of the United States, Bill Clinton. He spoke about the importance of having platforms like KIVA to support and jumpstart small businesses all over America. We had an amazing time, and we were able to network with great business leaders and other big lenders. Special thanks to Stephanie Reyes at the NYC Business Solutions.
The Brooklyn Holiday Bazaar took place this year at the amazing location 501 Union. It was the third run for this Bazaar, and our second time participating. The crowd was really friendly and very polite. We love participating on this event, as it brings our products to a great community in Brooklyn. We’re already thinking of next year’s!
Thanks to the help of our friends, family, and the NYC Business Solutions Center, we were able to participate in this year’s Union Square Holiday Market. We had the chance to meet and talk to thousands of customers, tourists, locals, and other park visitors.
About the market: The Union Square Holiday Market is the New York destination for an intimate and enjoyable holiday shopping experience. Tourists and locals can wander through the holly-lined aisles, and connect with the artisans from near and far who are selling their wares and sharing their stories. It’s a delightful place to get swept up in the festive spirit.
