This past weekend I had the chance to vend in D.C. with the guys from Cry baby DC at the Hole in the Sky collective (IG @crybabydc). We thought the snow storm would keep people away, but nope! Tons showed up to enjoy some local and regional comedy and in the process got to learn a bit about Young Mary’s.
Personally, the experience was a resounding success for me. Not only did I surpass my goal of selling one candle (yay) it was really exciting to talk to people about the brand and Young Mary’s push to start conversations and make Africa slightly more accessible. I also got some great ideas for new candles (Senegal anyone?).
It was just really nice to be able to connect with people about something you care about. Really grateful for the opportunity and I’m already looking forward to the next one.
