We chat with the local lady behind a growing group that celebrates and supports Girl Bosses in fun new ways. Read on to learn more about them and their upcoming event that’ll help you holiday shop with local, woman-owned businesses.
Girl Boss Events is back and this time they’re hosting a Holiday Pop Up event. Slated for Saturday, November 10, from 11 am to 4 pm, the Holiday Pop Up will take place at Sabin Hall and The Unity Chapel at Liberty Center in Liberty Township.
According to Girl Boss Events Founder Ashley Lindsey, this event is unique in that all of the businesses who will be attending are owned and run by Cincinnati girl bosses. “You can come sip, shop, and celebrate the season all while shopping small, local, and supporting our city’s girl bosses,” she says.
Lindsey says the team is still in the process of receiving applications, but she has a goal of selecting 30-40 vendors to attend. “Our main goal is to keep these pop-ups fresh and intimate, but with a party vibe, which is unlike most markets or expos you see in the area,” she adds.
Currently, some of the businesses attending the event include:
- OBTLove – hair accessories for girls and bow ties for the guys
- The Spampy Baby Co. – pacifier clips and teething rings
- Lulu’s Sweet Bites – cookies, cakes, and cupcakes
- Game Day Feels – accessories made from baseball glove lace
- Woodworks + Co – hand lettered home decor and furniture
- Fenno Fashion – jewelry
- StyleNmotion – clothing boutique
- Fresh Garden Goods – kitchen/cooking, home decor, kids goods
- Trendy Tags Boutique – clothing boutique
“This is just the start of our vendor selection,” says Lindsey. “There is really something for everyone to come shop for the holidays.”

The event is free to the public, which Lindsey says can expect to have a good time, enjoy an uplifting atmosphere, and do some of the best shopping from local girl boss businesses.
“There will be complimentary coffee and hot chocolate provided by Cavu Coffee, a photo booth, and more surprises from our amazing community members,” she adds.
While there are no tickets to purchase for the event, to have an accurate headcount, Lindsey says that they are asking for RSVPs on the Facebook event, which you can find here.
There are other events around the corner for Girl Boss Events including one at Kendra Scott in Kenwood. “The Girl Boss Events team will be there to mix and mingle, enjoy some refreshments and get 15 percent off with fellow girl bosses in the Cincinnati area,” says Lindsey. The mixers, she says, are for girl bosses who have started ground-up businesses, and an RSVP is a must.
Lindsey says that they’re also excited about events coming up in 2018 that are centered around health, wellness, and weddings.
