Welcome to Perfectly Posh, who will have a booth at Rochester VegFest!
Perfectly Posh is a skincare company that makes naturally-based products in the USA, never tests on animals, uses recyclable containers, has many vegan options, and all individual items cost under $25.
Want to experience their products at the booth first? There will be samplers of hand cremes, facial moisturizers, and body butters. You’ll be able to smell big Chunk bath soap bars, scrubby Snarky bars, body scrubs, skin sticks, and face masks/body muds. They will also have individually wrapped bath bombs for sale – you can’t try them, but you can definitely smell them. And they’ll be handing out prepackaged samples to take home.
They’re also bringing a raffle basket, and providing goodies for our SWAG bags!
Thank you to our latest sponsor, Hart’s Local Grocers! In addition to their sponsorship, they are sending secret stuff for our SWAG bags and a big gift basket of their vegan groceries for our raffle!
Hart’s is located in downtown Rochester at 10 Winthrop Street. They have plenty of parking and lots of vegan items.
Thank you to our friends at The Institute for Animal Happiness, for donating a raffle basket and free music download cards for our SWAG bags! The raffle basket will include some of the vegan-message items they sell.
What is the IFAH? Rebecca says,
“We create art and opportunities that encourage joy, learning, non-speciesist dialogue and positive action for animals that is grounded in a vegan, animal rights = human rights (Intersectional) philosophy. IFAH also creates empowering and fun message-wear that helps support our animal rescue, care & advocacy efforts – and has supported the efforts of many great organizations. We also make spontaneous gifts of our merch to hard working animal rights advocates in the trenches, because we’ve been there and know that a sign of support and a warm hat in winter can be meaningful when you are outside caring for animals or leafletting in the cold.”
Among many other things, they have recorded a song, Animal Anthem. You can get to the Festival early and donate $3 to score a raffle ticket and a SWAG bag with a coupon for a free download.
Thank you to Miyoko’s Kitchen for donating coupons for our SWAG bags and a $50 gift certificate to our raffle!
Think vegans can’t have cheese? Miyoko’s Kitchen says we can!
Their products were created by Miyoko Schinner, who embarked on a mission to recreate the range of flavors and textures she had once enjoyed from dairy cheeses before becoming vegan. Several years of experimentation culminated in the publication of her groundbreaking book, Artisan Vegan Cheese, which she hoped would inspire others to make their own.
Despite the success of the book, people frequently requested that she simply make and sell them. To satisfy this demand, she assembled a team of passionate vegans with expertise in different areas, and Miyoko’s Kitchen was born! Today, Miyoko’s Kitchen ships to all 50 States and is available in select retailers.
A huge thank you to our sponsor Vegan Rob’s, for sending 576 bags of their veggie chips to us (that was twelve cases in my driveway)!
We’re very grateful to our in-kind sponsor, Follow Your Heart, for providing $1,000 worth of product for our SWAG bags.
Get to the VegFest early to get one of the SWAG bags given to the first 100 people who donate $3 or more to attend, and you’ll find inside a sample of their VeganEgg and coupons for $9 worth of free Follow Your Heart products!
Thanks to GoMacro for their donation of 400 MacroBar Minis! Arrive at the festival early to score one in our limited-quantity SWAG bags, or volunteer and get one for sure!
