As many of you already know, Think Big Partners is hosting a Zaarly Bazaar during Entrepreneur Corner (First Fridays) on June 7, 2013. Sure, it sounds interesting, but what is a Zaarly Bazaar exactly?
First of all, let’s talk about Zaarly—one of the most well-known and successful startups from the Kansas City region. Zaarly is an online marketplace that helps you buy and sell things with the people around you. Zaarly pushes the notion of “buying local”. The platform allows you to browse local listings, place orders, hold on to your favorites, and ultimately, discover what local products you love.
The explanation above makes it seem as if Zaarly is an online-only business. Not so fast! Thanks to Zaarly Bazaars, much like the one we are hosting on June 7, buyers can meet local Zaarly storefront owners live and in person. Once a month, Zaarly throws a good old fashioned bazaar in its various cities, bringing locals the best of the best of food, services and handmade goods. Zaarly also makes multiple appearances at flea markets and other local events nationwide (so keep your eye out!).
If you’re an avid Zaarly user (or are just interested in learning more about this successful KC startup) be sure to swing by Think Big Partners’ parking lot at 1800 Baltimore during First Fridays (June 7, 2013 from 5:30-8:30pm) to learn more, get involved and buy local. See you there!
