Isn't it ironic that my last blog post was about a huge milestone at TechTown when we won the award for the 'Pop Up Shop Category' at TechTown's Retail Boot Camp. We went on to try a two month pop up in Midtown at 71 Garfield and were so happy to be in such a robust neighborhood. And now..We have officially set up our first office studio in suite 332 in TechTown!
I'm beyond excited and thankful to call this space my home away from home. The 'Soft Opening' yesterday has left me humbled and overwhelmed at the support and love I have received from everyone here at TechTown. I can honestly say that my customers are now friends and all my friends are now customers. Thank you Alissa for being a great addition to our team, providing your creative energy to fuel Tribalfare's online store and accommodating my 'mompreneur' schedule. Thank you Anuja for being the 'perfect' intern and helping us with inventory management and your work on the Tribalfare Bollywood Dance Program (more details to follow;) Thank you Cafe Con Leche and Adan for providing the much needed caffeine at the event.
A huge shoutout to the TechTown team: Ned Staebler, Graig Donnelly, Regina Campbell, Bonnie Fahoome, Sarah Donnelly, Wendy Wilson and Andrea Pitcher for the constant support and encouragement throughout this whole process!
This space plays so many roles..it is a space to collaborate with other creatives and work on our e-commerce website, it is a space that houses our inventory and a space where we offer a cultural shopping experience by appointment. Tribalfare is so much more than just a retail store. We can now arrange intimate meetings, special events and offer monthly trunk shows. An inclusive, eclectic space that celebrates the good in each of our cultures and aims to offer a tiny snapshot of Indian arts, crafts, textiles and of course hospitality!
I'm so excited to meet you and learn about your story and your culture while you explore mine. Let's make an appointment!
