Welcome to ArmenianVendor.com Blog!

Our mission is to help Armenians from Armenia share their talents and creativity with the rest of the world while allowing the rest of the world direct access to all that Armenians from all around the world, including Armenia itself, have to offer.

Company Overview: We started our venture by participating in few local Armenian bazaars and set up tables with our jewelry and pictures of Armenia. Now years later, we have sold literally hundreds of pictures and added to our stock of Armenian souvenirs to include all that you'll see on this website and more. Visiting Armenia is the best way to experience all that the country and its people have to offer. However, for those who dont have that opportunity currently, we wanted to provide the chance to bring Armenia to them via ArmenianVendor.com by showing you all that modern day Armenia & Armenians from around the world have to offer. "Paree Yegak Yev Hrametsek" (Welcome and come on in).

Twas the night Before Christmas - Armenian Style:

Twas the night before Gakhant, when all through the doon
Not a gentani was stirring, not even our shoon.
The Koolbas were hung by the vararan with care,
Just after Medz Mayrig had washed them in the sink with hands bare.

The bzdeegs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Anoushabour danced in their heads.
And Mayrig in her kisheranots, and I in my Peejama,
Couldn’t wait till the morning so we could eat some fresh baklava.

When out on the lawn there arose such an amoog,
I sprang from the angokhin to see if it was a karnoog.
On the way to the badoohan I stubbed my poor dodig,
Tore open the badoohan and yelped like a shoonig.

The loosyn on the breast of the new-fallen tsooyn
Showed the bruise on my dodig in a sev and jermag kooyn.
When the tsav settled down and I stopped squirming like tsoogs,
I looked right outside and saw 8 tiny Eshoogs.

With a little old mart, Could it be? Haba?,
I knew in a moment it must be Gakhant Baba.
More rapid than Trchoons those gentanees came,
And he bora’ed, and ganche’ed, and called them by name!

"Now Garo! now, Arman! now, Jirayr and Levon!
On, Vartan! On, Haig! on Norayr and Dziran!
To the top of the danig! to the top of the doon!
Yalla Hayde Beh! Hayde Beh! Hayde Beh amenoon!"

As vardeegs that are hung outside to dry fly,
When they meet with the hov, and fly to the sky.
So up to the Danik the Eshoogs they flew,
With the Gark full of Toys, and Gakhant Baba too.

And then, in a vargyan, I heard on the Danik
The prancing and pawing of each little Eshoog.
As I drew midkis mech, and was turning around,
Down the Vararan Gakhant Baba came with a bound.

His Shabig and Pantolon were all colored Garmeer,
But his clothes were all sep-sev thanks to the ashes…oh dear.
A bundle of Khakhaligs he had flung right onto his back,
He looked like THE ARMENIAN VENDOR, standing there just opening his pack.

His Achks-how they twinkled! his Yeres how merry!
His Aydigs were like Vart’iks, his Keet like a cherry!
His droll little shoortoonks were Garmeer in Kooyn,
And the Morook of his chin was as jermag as the tsooyn.

A piece of fresh soojookh he held tight with his teeth,
And the smell of that soojookh went straight to your keet.
He had a broad khntoom eres, and a medz round Stamoks,
That shook when he laughed, and knocked off his aknots!

He was keroog but jarbig, a right jolly old mart,
And I laughed when I saw him, with all of my heart!
A wink of his Achk and a twitch in his Kit,
Soon gave me to know  he didn’t mind it one bit.

He spoke not a par, and worked real Shood,
And filled all the koolbas, he packed them real good.
And laying his mahd aside of his keet,
He shot up the vararan, and landed on his feet!

He sprang to his Gark, to his Eshoogs borats ganchets,
And away they all flew meg eshi ureneh satgets.
But I heard him exclaim after saying Kisherpari,
"Shnorhavor Soorp Dznoonoont, Yev Pari Nor Dari!"

2013 Season Ending Doubleheader!

Armenianvendor.com had it's last live event of 2013 and we went out with a BANG doing a doubleheader between Holy Trinity Church in Cambridge MA and Soorp Asdvadzadzin Church in Whitinsville, MA! We want to personally thank them (and all the rest of the organizations that allowed us to vend at their events) for all their kindness and hospitality and for of course, inviting us to be vendors at their event!
We started ArmenianVendor.com just 8 years ago with nothing other than photographs we took when we visited Armenia in 2005 and some jewelry..... 8 years later, thanks to an AMAZING outpouring of support from our customers, followers, friends, and family, we've grown immensely and continue to do so. So many of you have stepped forward, admitting to us that you have come to events just because you heard about it through us, and/or wanted to come and shop with us! You have no idea how grateful we are to hear those words! We also could not have been able to do this without people stepping forward and offering to help us. Not just at our events with helping to set up, clean up, and sell, but also by helping us promote ArmenianVendor.com to all their family and friends and letting the "Armenian Network" do it's thing. Lets not forget the friends and family that have helped us obtain unique quality items from Armenia directly to present and sell at our events!
ArmenianVendor.com was created to fill the gap for people everywhere around the world who wanted to obtain Armenian items without having to search stores globally for each individual product they wanted to buy. So many of us don't have nor ever had an Armenian store nearby to shop in either. We wanted to create an easy method for people to be able to obtain a piece of Armenia without actually having to go to Armenia. Essentially, we wanted to bring Armenia to your front door!
As 2013 comes to a close and 2014 is arriving, we hope and pray that more of you will step forward, not just to help us grow as we are but to help mold us into the store you want us to be. Please contact us any time with questions, suggestions, and ideas on how we might be able to help each other. After all, ArmenianVendor.com is as much for you as it is for us.

Don't forget, there's also still plenty of time to do your Christmas shopping with us online! We'll do our best as always to get your items to you and your loved ones by the date you request from us! Whether it be for American Christmas, New Years, Armenian Christmas, or otherwise, you can count on us to do our very best for each and every one of you!

All of us at ArmenianVendor.com want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year!
May you all enjoy the upcoming festivities with health, laughter, and the comfort of friends and family around you!
