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:
ARTIST STUDIO ON SECOND
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!
