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!
