[Retail]  Young Entrepreneur Market to Showcase Teen Vendors
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

The entrepreneurial bug bites some earlier than others, a fact that will be on full display this Saturday in the courtyard of The Bazaar on Apricot & Lime. There, the Young Entrepreneur Market will showcase the region’s budding artisans and retailers, and 17 and younger, as they sell original art, jewelry, plants, inventions and refreshments. Whether from watching parents navigate the retail work or spurred by their own desire to make a living selling their own wares, the booths at the market offer exposure to the promise and logistical challenges of running a shop.

“My daughter Isabella is 11 years old and is setting up a shop called Lemon drop where she will sell earrings that she has handmade and she is selling lemonade too,” said Lisa Charnicharo. “She hopes to gain experience in retail sales and possibly follow in my footsteps.” It runs in the family. Charnicharo owns a boutique at the Bazaar and previously co-ran PJ’s Boutique, with family.

The entrepreneurs themselves feel excitement over the opportunity. Sophia Cavaluzzi runs the jewelry shop Petit Phia, where she sells earings hand-made from beads and clay. “I hope to gain a sense of what it's like to sell for a market, and to gain experience as well,” she said.

Brothers Douglas and Trey Hanna will run separate shops at the market. Douglas runs Google Shells, which sells goods made from shells found on local beaches. “As a result of participating in this event, I hope to make money and have fun because I enjoy when people come up to my table and want to buy my products,” he said. Trey runs Green Thumb, which sells houseplants he propagates. “I hope to make a profit from all of the hard work I’ve been putting into my business,” he said. “I also enjoy the atmosphere of it, and I enjoy bartering with other participants.”

The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be free parking and masks are required.

[Top Doctors]  In Conversation With 2020 Top Doctor Ronald Torrance, II, D.O. On Innovation In Sports Medicine

For the January 2021 edition of SRQ Magazine, we interviewed 2020 Top Doctors on current topics. Below is an excerpt from this published in the In Conversation marketing feature in which Dr. Ronald Torrance, II of Regenexx Tampa Bay shares his insights on innovations in sports medicine.  

What are a few of the most exciting treatments in your field?

The innovations that we're really pioneering are looking at percutaneous ways to repair partial tears of the rotator cuff, and partial tears of the ACL where you don't have to go through arthroscopic surgery. We have two randomized control trials on each, showing that we can percutaneously help regenerate these injuries. So you don't have to necessarily have to go to surgery to get these areas to heal. Our CEO has a mission for Regenexx that our innovations reduce the number of elective orthopedic surgeries by 70% by 2030. I feel with the new modalities coming for the people, it's a certainly attainable mission.

[SOON]  PERFORMANCE: The Players Centre: Souvenir , January 21 – January 31, 7:30pm and 2pm

Souvenir, by turn hilarious and poignant, tells the story of Florence Foster Jenkins through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosme McMoon. Eyewitness accounts of their concerts vary so wildly it is almost impossible now to separate fact from gossip. Hence this fictional "biography," in which we follow the story of their partnership from its earliest days to their infamous concert in Carnegie Hall and its aftermath. With each new imagined triumph Florence's confidence soars. Faced with her boundless certainty, Cosme comes to revise his attitude, not only towards her singing but to the very meaning of music itself. A musical odd-couple for the ages. Enjoy Hamlet's Eatery Thursdays through Sundays up to 30 minutes before show time. Seating is provided. Dates include January 21-23, 26-30 at 7:30pm and January 24 and 31 at 2pm.
