Posted: Updated:

Vendors from around the borough were highlighted at a pop-up event in Bed-Stuy on Sunday.

The event was organized by the Kerelle Caldwell, owner of Eye Essentials, a new store that launched this month.

A portion from the proceeds of the event will go toward leukemia research as a way to honor the Caldwell's grandmother.

Caldwell says that while celebrating the launch of her brand, she also wants to help other small businesses get exposure.

More than a dozen vendors were at the event to sell products from eyeglasses to jewelry to skin care and more.
