How this Small Business is Bringing Paris to You, Creating Jobs Along the Way

Like most people who travel to visit Paris for the first time, Le Village Marché owner Angela Phelps fell in love. And the feeling never left. Six years later Phelps decided to leave her previous careers in sports and entertainment behind to open a Parisian-inspired home décor & gift boutique in the charming Village at Shirlington in Arlington, VA. With the success and demands of customers around the area, a second location opened in June of 2015 in the Cathedral Heights neighborhood in Washington D.C. From beautifully beaded chandeliers and elaborate soaps from Marseilles to letter-pressed cards and French tea towels, Le Village Marché shares a unique blend of the old and new, reminiscent of a stroll through a Paris flea market. Both locations are a treasure trove of unique gifts for any occasion throughout the year. At the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, one question we had for Le Village […]

Reinventing Hanukkah: How One Small Business is Rethinking Jewish Gift Giving

Amy Kritzer’s entrepreneurial journey began with what she knew: Jewish Food. She started What Jew Wanna Eat, a food blog, in 2010 as a way to share her take on traditional Jewish recipes. She modernizes these recipes and often offers healthier alternatives and garnered a huge following. Last year she had the opportunity to come out with her own cookbook, “Sweet Noshings.” That’s when she knew she was onto something. And it was just the beginning. She went on to buy ModernTribe, alongside her brother Andrew, a Jewish gift shop. Moved the store solely online, and is working feverishly to bring “modern design to Jewish lives.” The website sells everything from custom dreidels, chic and industrial Menorahs, gourmet latkes to jewelry and an assortment of Bar and Bat Mitzvah Gifts.  And even a diamond-laden Yarmulke, billed the most expensive in the world.
