Who We Are
NEVU – New England Vendors United is a Non Profit 501(c)(6) group of vendors and event coordinators who host events that bring together quality vendors and products to the New England BDSM community.
Our intent is to provide an inclusive, accessible and ethically based shopping experience.
We answered the call of the BDSM community for an ethically based shopping event. Our friends on Fetlfe posted an idea for a New England Fetish February, where customers would shop online for their favorite toys from their favorite vendors. We decided to take it a step further and create an event that would allow the community physical access to their favorite vendors and products.

Ropes By EDK
EDK started tying people at a young age. He always found himself interested in bondage and aspects of BDSM. One day he got tired of buying bulk rope off the spool and started experimenting with making his own rope for his own use. Some of his friends ended up seeing his newly made ropes and asked him to make some for them. He soon realized his passion for making bondage rope and opened up shop in December of 2014. His first rope walk was in the back yard of his parents house. He spent 2 winters outside making rope until he purchased a home where he now has a rope shop in his basement. His motto is “Damn Good Bondage Rope”. and his customers agree! www.ropesbyedk.com
Sassamon has been a member of the kink community for almost a decade. His passion for making leather goods began when he was sick of using a cheapo sex shop flogger and made a nice one for himself. Somebody asked for one just like it and Sassamon Leather was born. The years since have seen the product line expand from floggers and dragon tails to Thuddy Thumpers, fashionable collars, kink-wear and more. Each item is the result of years of hard work, customer feedback, continuous learning and improvement as well as a passion to make high quality leather goods. You can buy from stock at the event or place a custom order.
Brookeish is a nonbinary, primal, sadomasochistic switch of doom and woo. They have been tying for about five years and have been passionate about growing in rope since the beginning of their kinky journey. A founding member of the New England Rope Education Network (NEREN) and Primal Bite New England, they thrive organizing and creating safe spaces for folks in the community to come together to learn, share and grow.
