UniFEST is a contemporary festival celebrating diversity and inclusion for all. Held in downtown Silver Spring, this festival included art, music, fashion, and small business vendors. We had a great time meeting vendors and learning about local small businesses in the area.
Check out a few of the businesses we spoke to below:
Tight Fisted Fashion is a Baltimore based resale and consignment store. They have a curated selection of items to meet your needs.
Tiara Slater of Queen Designs is a Maryland based Graphic Designer. She sells bags, pillows, and prints all creatively designed to uplift black people and spread the message that “black is beautiful.”
Freres Branchiaux is a candle company founded by three brothers, Collin, Ryan, and Austin Gill. They started this business after they ran out of allowance money and their parents told them “get a job or start a business.” Freres Branchiaux now sells hand poured candles, room sprays and diffusers.
Skips & Flutters- is a shop curated for the modern woman from makers all over the country. This shop sells clothes, cards, mugs, keychains and accessories all dedicated to uplifting and empowering women.
