covering two new businesses from East Cambridge

In Inman Square, and mostly by accident I came upon an affair at the East Cambridge Savings Bank. The bank was hosting a couple of new and unique vendors. This was part of the Thursday program put on by The East Cambridge which brings different situations to the Inman Community and beyond. There were two vendors which I discovered. The first was called Small Spaces. The woman running the stand told me that her store was from Somerville as its home base. She was eager to give me information about her business. Firstly, I learned that all of her merchandise was homemade Some but not all of her product was coffee mugs, small vases, and bowls She proudly told me that she has been doing this for 18 years. She followed up her youth hobby of taking art classes as a child. speaking of children; her daughter happily handed me a business card ..The second booth was something I had never encountered. There were so many small bottles on his stand all aptly named. "Barry's hot sauce. They were containers of spicy liquid. If you liked to pizzaz your dinner; Barry;s hot sauce is where you need to shop. Barry proudly let me know that he was from Ireland and seemed to be glad to be in America. He was taking advantage of the fact that America certainly is the land of opportunity. I was eager to learn what his best selling sauce was. He told me that a container called Ghost sold better than any of his other spices. Barry has been doing this business for ten months. You can find his product at Christina's Spice store and at Inman Wine and Spirit. In closing I questioned Barry about his sales and he said." My sales are better that he thought they would be."
