In the new year we had the privilege of being able to work with another woman-owned business, Grand Events LLC. Grand Events owner, Cecily Near puts on several events a year with the most recent being the Grand Rapids Antiques Market.
For 2012, Cecily brought 834 in to manage the design, public relations and sponsorship. We were able to bring in Goodwill Industries of Greater Grand Rapids as a new sponsor as well as work with Stellafly on video and photography to capture all of the unique features of the event.
For the public relations portion, the 834 team worked hard in conjunction with Grand Events LLC to promote the event. Check out the below coverage:

Not only was this a great event with great organizations and people involved, but we had a lot of fun! Did we mention that we may have found a few amazing vintage finds.
