For those who don’t know you, tell us about who you are and what you do?
My name is Aaliyah Brown. I am the owner and operator of Arm Kandy LLC. Arm Kandy is a trendy handbag company that provides handbags, backpacks, wallets, and minor accessories. AK started as an online boutique. Now, I attend vending events to sell my products as well.
What got you into your field?
I started a handbag company because I have a handbag fetish. I always loved carrying designer handbags, but at an affordable cost. Those were rare so I started my own handbag company.
What ways are you keeping busy, staying creative and still pushing your brand?
I am staying busy with Arm Kandy by always making improvements. I make sure I am consistent with my social media, marketing, and products especially now. I read business books to stay motivated. I like to brainstorm to stay innovative as well.
What will you tell your grand children when they asked you what you remember most about the Coronavirus pandemic?
If I have grandchildren, I will tell them how our culture came together during this time even when we had stay at home orders. During this pandemic, I can honestly say we have spent our money in our own communities. We also came together for the senseless killings of our kind. Always stand up for what you believe in!
What can people do to show their support to what you’re doing?
Support is not always monetary! People can show their continued support by sharing product posts, referring the company, sharing your purchase, passing out a business card, liking us on Facebook, or following us on Instagram.
Where can we find you on social media? Do you have a website?
The Arm Kandy website is www.shoparmkandy.com. We are on social media as well. Our Facebook and Instagram names are Arm Kandy LLC.
