One of my new portfolios on city council is Local Commerce, so I was very pleased to see the Équinoxe Marc Chagall present a Holiday Market on December 12.
This was a clever initiative by the administration of the two large rental apartment buildings.The purpose of the event was to support local businesses. There were 12 exhibitors, many of whom reside at the Équinoxe.
“It was a very big success,” said Nathalie Pariente of The Équinoxe. “People found some wonderful gifts for the holidays.”
There was nice variety of exhibitors. Sonia Ohayon is a caterer who had plenty of samples to share, including her famous Moroccan cigars. She is noted for her incredible soups, main dishes like sweet and sour meatballs, desserts and plenty of sides. She caters and does deliveries. You can reach her at 514-481-6207 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Robyn Goodman, whose parents live in the building, was selling her beautiful paintings. You can reach her at email@example.com.
Stephen Orleans was helping a friend sell her impressive line of sunglasses.
Myriam Zagury showed her line of merchandise from Arbonne, for whom she is an independent consultant and executive district manager. She had a variety of nutrition, skincare, makeup and healthy living products for sale. Go to https://www.arbonne.com/ca/en/arb/myriamzagury/

As an animal lover I was pleased to see that a representative from Between Hands Paws, a pet sitting and animal walking company powered by educhateur was on hand. Go to www.entrepattesetmains.com or call 514-647-2428.
Groupe De Palma provides concierge services to the building and they could do the same for you. Check them out at www.groupedepalma.com.
These were just some of the vendors.
Bravo to all. I recommended to Nathalie that this type of sale be repeated in the spring or summer, perhaps even outdoors.
