This year the event, which is typically held in-person at Convention Hall, will now be held virtually due to the pandemic. The online event will feature a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, blog features and social media promotions to support New-Jersey based businesses, makers, artists, designers and vendors, as well as non-profit organizations, during a very difficult year. www.asburyparkbazaar.com/valentines-2021-virtual-bazaar.
Enjoy shopping from a curated roster of handcrafted goods and services from NJ-based businesses, ranging from handcrafted jewelry, art and photography to candles, sweet treats, home goods and more. Due to the pandemic and a pretty tough year for the Asbury Park Bazaar, the marketplace has decided to shift the event online.
“Our Valentine’s event at Convention Hall is one of our favorite events of the year and celebrates the love we have for all things local and handmade,” said Jenny Vickers Chyb, founder of Asbury Park Bazaar, Long Branch Bazaar & Atlantic City Bazaar. “We are sad that we can’t be together in person this year due to the pandemic, but we hope the community will support the virtual event and shop small this Valentine’s Day.”
The goal of the Valentine’s Virtual Bazaar is to promote and support local artists, makers and shops, who provide both goods and services, as well as provide a space for people to shop safely online from home and direct people to local businesses in the area.

“You’ll be able to shop amazing gifts and goods made locally with love for your partner, pet, coworker or family member safely from home or visit their retail store to shop,” said Chyb. “Send love to someone this Valentine’s Day! You’ll be supporting a local small business, while putting a smile on someone’s face when they open the mail. Or you can just send a gift to yourself – we won’t tell.”
Virtual event-goers can shop by visiting the Asbury Park Bazaar’s website where it will be featuring a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide (www.asburyparkbazaar.com/valentines-virtual-bazaar-gift-guide-2021 – this link will go live on February 1st) and special vendor blog features.
