More and more, shoppers are looking for a way to support small businesses and own unique items. Our mega-consumerist society has brought out a desire to enjoy spaces where one cannot only interact with products but also with the artisans behind them. This is where Michelle Dalzon’s The Black-Owned Market — affectionately called theBOM — comes in. The 29-year-old founder held her third marketplace event last weekend where she invited brands to sell their goods in a curated space. Indoors, the vendors get the opportunity to not only sell products alongside like-minded brands, but also personalize their brand’s booths.
