HIMANE's Holiday Spirit

HIMANE and a collection of very cool vendors participated in the Bee Aware Holiday Fair this past Saturday in New York City, even with the impending snow storm threatening to ruin the day. Even though we didn't have as many people come to the event as we would have liked, it was still a thoroughly positive experience.

Below are a few pictures from the fair. The pictures do not fully capture how contagious the holiday spirit was that day, but they will suffice.

We are all looking forward to a happy and prosperous New Year and new decade. Many thanks to our hosts, In Good Company, our fellow vendors, and those who came to support us at the Bee Aware Holiday Fair. Happy Holidays!

Bee Aware Holiday Fair

HIMANE is one of several of Brooklyn-based businesses participating in the Bee Aware Holiday Fair at the In Good Company office in Manhattan on Saturday, December 19. In addition to our collection of upcycled bags and clothing, our fellow vendors will be selling accessories for home and person, cosmetics and skincare, and sweet treats. This event is in support of PlanBeeCentral.com, which is committed to saving the bee colonies from dying off at alarming rates.

Classical guitarist Robert Secrist is also scheduled to play live at the Bee Aware Holiday Fair, and his CDs will be available for purchase.

We hope to see you there! Supporting local businesses and supporting the protection of bees worldwide are great excuses to stop by, if you are in the area.

HIMANE's Latest Developments

We have been on hiatus from updating our social media sites, mostly because of our move to the new studio, which is located just minutes away from our former headquarters.

Here is our new address:

112 2nd Avenue, Suite 4
Brooklyn, NY 11215

Our studio is in a commercial building that was once a factory, and we are proud to have a number of talented artists as our new neighbors. It goes without saying that the new spirits of creativity inspire and motivate us as we settle into our new space.

Our website has also been enabled for online shopping, which currently has a selection of our signature items ready for purchase. We can ship anywhere within the contiguous United States. Please check our website regularly, because we will be updating our online store as often as needed.

HIMANE is also proud to participate in TWM's 2009 VIRTUAL HOLIDAY BAZAAR & SILENT AUCTION until Christmas. The Women's Mosaic is a non-profit organization committed to supporting, educating, and empowering women from all walks of life, so being one of the vendors in this event suits us perfectly. So, please support HIMANE and other women entrepreneurs and business owners by doing your holiday shopping with us online!

On Saturday, December 19, HIMANE and several other Brooklyn businesses will be participating in the BEE AWARE Holiday Fair: Brooklyn Women's Artisan Sale, which will take place at In Good Company in Manhattan (16 West 23rd Street, 4th Floor). This seven-hour event is a great opportunity for interested and potential consumers to interact directly with talented local businesswomen, artists, and designers.

We hope to connect with you online or in person this month!
