What is VB
The Virtual Bazaar is an on- and off- line platform that aims to support local product and businesses as they navigate the crazy business environment. Joining together to share costs, knowledge and under one umbrella for buyers to find trusted vendors with good quality products. VB offers a variety of benefits for business owners who join the Platform.
Our focus in on the people behind the brand. We work closely to get to know the story that each brand represents and to support the businesses efforts as they develop, grow and tell their story. For instance, we have a teacher who is a passionate jewelry maker at night and donates part of her purchases to refugee families, we have a candle maker who donates proceeds to the Cancer foundation as her sister passed away from cancer, and we have a project of Bedouin women in the South of Jordan who weave gorgeous bags from sweaters that have been unwoven, washed and then weaved on traditional looms and we have more.
Our vendors are small business owners of multiple nationalities, young business owners to older ages, primarily women, a few men, NGOs and private organizations, members who work a day job and their business with us is their passion. We feature a wide variety of products ranging from books, art, handmade items, soap and skincare, gifts, clothing, accessories, jewelry, services, and luxury products. The common thread amongst this diverse group is that we are all creators of local products, owners of local businesses in Jordan working for Jordan.
As of today, VB has 90+ vendors on board with additional vendors being added weekly.
Our plans for 2022-2023 include developing the platform further with the focus on Trusted Vendors Directory and Online Store as the important tools for small businesses development, adding more offline events, easier selling practices, expanding trusted vendor status, international connections to advertise and sell products from Jordan and adding educational content to develop skills and experiences for both online and offline events.
