Business 2 Business Extravaganza

Celebrating National Small Business Week certainly was a source of education, inspiration, and mega networking for Chamber members and attendees alike both at the three intimate Vignettes followed by the mega Business 2 Business held for the first time at Serramonte Center.

The three  Vignette mixers started off at  Ziba Beauty Eyebrow Threading , l ocat ed at 43 Serramonte Blvd inside Serramonte Center.  We learned about the Eastern beauty tradition of shaping and styling eyes shaped and styled for the modern word.We learned how to accent every part of our eyes. While touring  the outer showroom, we saw the intri cacies of eyebrow threading, spoke about their products and enjoyed intimate conversations with other business attendees.

Cypress Lawn Memorial Park in Colma delighted attendees with the history of Cypress Lawn established by Hamden Holmes Noble in 1892.  Attendees experienced first hand the tranquility of Cypress Lawn Memorial Park. It is the City of the Silent and both experience the peace and serenity and comfort offered. We learned that it is  the final resting site for several members of the celebrated Hear st family plus other prominent citizens from the greater San Francisco area. To see photos of the second Vignette, please click here.
