Hey there cupcakes! I know it’s been quite some time since I’ve posted. I’ve been SUPER busy with events and client orders but I wanted to take a moment to update you on the latest and greatest.
First, let’s pickup where we left off: the Sistah’s in Business Expo in Newark, NJ. The event was a huge success! We sold out of everything. Even the samples we brought were purchased. Can you believe it?!
Next up, the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival was in May at the Metropolitan Pavilion. This was my first big festival and it was quite an experience. I met some great people and took home an entire bag full of vegan food from other vendors that I swapped with or purchased from. The samples we brought went like hotcakes and it was tough to keep up with demand for them, but we managed. A big THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by the booth and purchased cupcakes and cookies from us during those two days!
Fast forward to Philadelphia, PA and the second installment of the Sistah’s in Business Expo. We came, we saw, we sold lots of treats! If you’re in Columbia, SC or Atlanta, GA, the expo is coming to you so be sure to get tickets and be in the house for all the great information shared at these events for aspiring entrepreneurs.
And our most recent outing was right in our backyard here in the Bronx! We attended the second ever Bronx Night Market at Fordham Plaza and, save for one hiccup (check our Instagram feed for details), we had a great time and sold out about an hour before the end of the event!
So, where does that leave us? Summer is half over but we’ve only just begun! Here is a list of our upcoming events:
Black VegFest – Saturday, August 11th – Herkimer Street & Ralph Avenue (Brooklyn, NY) – 10am-5pm
The Bronx Night Market – Saturday, August 25th – Fordham Plaza (Bronx, NY) – 4pm-9pm
Atlantic Antic – Sunday, September 23rd – Atlantic Avenue (Brooklyn, NY) – 12pm-6pm
BONUS: I’ll be teaming up with one of my favorite vegan chef’s, Cheff Rootsie of Veggie Grub for two days of Harlem Week on August 18th & 19th. So if you’re in the area, stop by the Veggie Grub booth and grab a cupcake (or two) and some of her famous Mac n Cheese!
So now that you know, I hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!
Peace, Love, Cupcakes
