Stuck at home?  Let's Go Shopping!  Attend this online event that 
brings together small businesses and the customers who need them.

Henderson, NV - Laura Legendary, owner of Elegant Insights Braille 
Creations, has organized an all-day, online accessible experience for 
seniors and consumers with disabilities called "Let's Go 
Shopping!"  On Saturday, April 4th, from 7 AM PT to 7 PM PT, shoppers 
will be able to call or connect to the Zoom platform to shop for 
gifts for Easter, Passover, Mother's Day, graduations, or any 
upcoming gift-giving occasion.  With millions of people in 
self-isolation, getting out to shop is all but impossible for those 
with limited mobility.

People with disabilities, seniors, and those in rural areas with 
limited bandwidth or lack of access to help from their children, 
in-home health care provider, or personal assistant may find 
navigating web sites to go shopping online difficult.  "People with 
print or cognitive disabilities who would normally have access to 
assistive technology through their workplace, or a care worker who 
they rely on to accomplish shopping tasks may now find themselves cut 
off, thanks to the need to remain at home.  As a result, they may 
find online shopping to be cognitively burdensome," says 
Legendary.  "My goal with the Let's Go Shopping event was two-fold: 
Not only to give micro businesses a boost, but to bring a virtual 
shopping mall to customers," says Legendary, who is blind. "Besides, 
we could all use a little retail therapy about now."

Attendees will access the live online mall using the Zoom Video 
Conferencing platform.  Zoom has been a lifesaver for students and 
parents who need to connect with teachers and colleagues.  Zoom 
enables users to sign in using a desktop, laptop, smartphone app, or 
even their landline telephone.  Brent Harbolt, of The Harbolt 
Company, one of the participating vendors, has donated the Zoom room 
for the event.  "Let's Go Shopping is an opportunity for me to reach 
new customers who are looking for gadgets to make their life a little 
easier, provide product descriptions, and directly answer people's 
questions in real time," says Harbolt.

All of the small business owners participating in the "Let's Go 
Shopping" event have a disability.  Vendors include A T Guys, Patti 
and Ricky, GuideLights and Gadgets Inc., Elegant Insights Braille 
Creations, Hartgen Consultancy, and more.  Shoppers will be able to 
purchase artisan crafted dolls, home fragrance and beauty products, 
independent living aids, adaptive apparel and accessories, ceramics, 
and braille jewelry.

Elegant Insights Braille Creations is a distinctive, handcrafted 
collection of jewelry and accessories, made in the USA, and embossed 
in braille.  Founded in 2011 by Laura Legendary, Elegant Insights 
jewelry is meaningful, unusual, accessible, and inclusive.  We bring 
out the beauty of braille.
