Small Business Round Table with Congressman Dan Donovan


Recently I was invited for a follow up meeting with Congressman Donovan in his Staten Island office after my visit to his Washington DC office during Small Business Week eBay DC Fly-in 2017.  Ed Varuolo of Hypno-Tronic Comics and Tariq Zaid of Richmond Hood Company  and I talked to the Congressman about Staten Island development, taxes, the proposed internet tax, and proposed changes to the health care system and how they would affect us and our small businesses.

We appreciated a chance to voice our concerns and to make the point that NY and Staten Island has many small businesses both brick and mortar and online.  Big issues can sometimes have a crushing effect on us as people think of the large corporations and forget the ‘Mom and Pop’  size places.  More work needs to be done and we will continue to make sure our voices get heard.

Thanks to Congressman Donovan for meeting with us, Patrick Ryan for setting it up and Henry Salmon of Equity Valuation Associates, Steven Grillo of the SIEDC, Dean Balsamini of the SBDC, and Linda Baran of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce for their contribution and support.

Classics Always in Style


Classic Vintage Styles Reimagined

At Hey Viv ! we are always searching for classic pieces that will compliment your wardrobe,don’t go out of style, and have people asking “Where did you get that ! ?”

We love silhouettes like a simple pencil dress, a cinch belt that shows off your curvy shape, pearls, or a pillbox hat worn with panache. As Diana Vreeland said: “You gotta have style. It helps you get down the stairs. It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life.”

“Vintage Charm for the Modern Gal”

Flashback – a Far Out Photo Op

Recently I was asked to take part in a fun project with Elaine Mendez and the Labyrinth Arts Collective.  Elaine wanted to add some pizzazz to the Collective’s upcoming “Retro Art Show”   and she asked me to come up with ideas.

“The Retro Show” is an exhibition which gives homage to art styles from the 1960’s – 1970’s so I thought,  why not set up a photo shoot with props, scarves, shades, hats and clothing from the hippy to disco era. Let people get dressed up, take pictures, and post it to social media.

Here’s what I came up with….

Show the world how Groovy you are at Hey Viv’s “Flashback – a Far Out Photo Op” at the Labyrinth Arts Collective Retro Art Show.  Try on some trippy beads and disco threads, take a picture and Post It !


To make it even better, I am collaborating with Nadette Stasa from Every Thing Goes Clothing.  ETG has fun costume and are experts at putting together a fun, feather, glitter, tie dye, beaded, and groovy experience. I had a fun evening at the store picking out the fringed, the shiny, and the wild fashions we love from the 60’s and 70’s.  Thanks Nadette !
