eBay Advocacy Day 2017

Recently, I was invited to Washington  DC to  attend eBay’s Advocacy Day on Wed May 3, 2017 as part of a group of about 20 businesses from across the US.  It was a wonderful chance to network, learn, and  talk about the challenges we face as small businesses.  eBay Advocacy Day is an annual event out together by the eBay Government Relations Team.  The team set up meetings with our representatives in the Senate and Congress where we talked about internet tax, open trade, NAFTA, and how government regulations affect our business.  We also visited the White House for a meeting with Andrew Bremberg, the Assistant to the President and the Director of the Domestic Policy Council and Michael Kratsios, the Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy U.S. Chief Technology Officer.  The lines of communication were open and information exchanged.

That week we were in Washington also happened to be Small Business Week – April 30th to May 6, 2017 so it was doubly exciting to be in Washington for this celebration.

And after the hard work, comes the celebration.   The  eBay team set up a Seller Showcase at Eastern Market and treated us to a party.  Here’s a video from the Hey Viv ! Booth.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a purse in every color to match all your outfits…. sigh…. For now we’ll have to settle for Paisley and Lime Green and keep on looking.

As Raven Simone says: “I’m definitely addicted to purses.”

“Clash of the Decades” Photo Shoot by Hey Viv ! at Hub 17

We recently invited Hey Viv customers to a spontaneous photo shoot fashion show at Hub 17 Gallery with photographer Ken Graham of Kenneth Paul Media. We put out racks of Hey Viv ! clothing from the 50’s to the 90’s and encouraged everyone to have fun creating their own look.  We’ve been posting the pictures on our HeyVivRetro instagram account so check them out.

And here’s the behind the scenes team that helped pull it off.  Rachel (in the picture above, on the left) was in charge of coordinating the clothing and props and making sure it all ran smoothly. She worked the racks and helped people pick out what they wanted to wear.   Katrina (in the middle) brought her fun and funky spirit and cool shoe collection. Katrina was good at adding just the right accessory to the right person.   She made sure everyone felt welcome and tried on something new.   And Viv (on the right) was the ‘in house’ cheerleader for the posing and picture taking part.  It’s not easy to get in front of the camera when you’re not used to it so Viv made everyone laugh and relax so they all showed “their good side” to the photographer.

Here’s our patient and creative photographer, Ken Graham of Kenneth Paul Media  He put everyone at ease and made the Photo Shoot fun and relaxing.  We love working with him !


Erin Kelli

And lest we forget – who was that wacky spirit that helped this idea grow and come to fruition ?  Yes, it’s Erin Kelli – artist, producer, free spirit and all around ‘get it done’ gal.  Erin was in charge of graphics and promotion.  She also brought lots of friends to the shoot and got everyone psyched !  Thanks Erin – you look great in everything !
