On November 21 to the 23 2019, a small business kernel, NEFË popped up at the Collectif Creatif EtsyMTL 3rd edition Popup Market.
The market was held at Windsor Station, in the heart of downtown Montreal near the Bell Centre. It hosted over 150 makers, artisans and designers under one roof where they sold a variety of their artisinal products. NEFË got a chance through Microcredit to have a booth amongst them, where we sold some of our unisex items, notably items from The Sweetest Collection.
The 3 day event brought a lot of traffic throughout the market, as early as the time it opened! Although it was not our main clientele, it was a great event for the exposure, the visibility and an overwhelming interest in NEFË. It was an experience and we enjoyed seeing who are the other creatives residing in the city of Montreal.
There were jewelry designers (Najeli Jewelry one of our favorites that uses recycled sterling silver and makes minimalist and feminist handmade pieces) to natural skin and beauty products using moringa oil as a main component from Lisa Noto to quiet a variety of snack products like Granolust (sweet to savory granola) as well as gourmet hot sauces like moabi_gourmet and Sinai.gourmet and many more.
