This year's Holiday HVN was a great opportunity for shopping small and local. Smaller than previous events, there were 12 vendors selling the most amazing, unique goods. From objects that celebrate a love of Connecticut and New Haven, to handmade light fixtures, jewelry, candles, knitwear, vintage clothing, succulents, cheeky patches and all natural beauty products - there was something almost every shopper could appreciate. A new edition this year was a storytelling video booth - magically transformed by Jennifer Cherrington and Melissa Kane - where people could tell their stories about New Haven. Look for the final product in the new year. Delicious eats were provided by The Farm Belly, LunchBox 23, and Whisk & Brush. Hosted and co-planned by the The Happiness Lab's founder Onyeka Obiocha - the event ran smoothly and everyone was well caffeinated and HAPPY! Scroll through the pics below for a glimpse into this special event. Love HVN is in the works so stay tuned for our February event!
Special thanks to Jennifer Cherrington for the great shots and to for making the event awesome!
