Saturday February 13th the day before Valentine's Day Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez hosted a Small Business Saturday Pop Up event at 'The Sanz Banquet Hall' located on Allerton Avenue. The event ran from 12 PM to 5 PM, with 17 vendors selling various Valentine Day related merchandise.
The vendors at the event were hard hit by the pandemic, because events like this were cancelled for most of last year with this event being the first or second of 2021 for most of the vendors. Items on sale ranged from various cosmetics including, beautiful handmade scented candles, items for the bath and body, decorated face masks, T-shirts, Valentine Day items, and some different food vendors.
Assemblywoman Fernandez was pleased with the quality of the merchandise being offered that she stopped at several tables to purchase various different items. We both wound up at the Top-Notch Catering tables where we each bought a very tasty lunch. The event was put together by MAS Marketing of the Bronx for Assemblywoman Fernandez.
