Small business news

▪️Thanks to a 3-alarm fire in their building last night, Venus Envy is closed while damage is assessed. We’re relieved that no one was seriously hurt. The warehouse is fine, and online orders are of course welcomed. Also, Happy 21st Birthday Venus Envy!
▪️A more devastating fire ravaged the barn at Hernder Estate
Wineries in Niagara on Saturday night. There were four minor injuries, and the fire destroyed the stalls and wares of more than 30 makers that were set up inside the barn for Day 2 of the Mom Market Collective event. The Mom Market Collective has set up a Go Fund Me page to help the makers recover from the loss of their livelihoods. Donations of any size are welcome.
