SoWa Holiday Market {This Weekend!}

If you live in the area and do not have plans to attend the SoWa Holiday Market this weekend, well kids I'm here to change your mind. The event promises to be a great one with indie artisians galore, yummy foods, and a festive atmosphere and let me tell you... As winter approaches (we already have snow), I can't think of anything better to do than to shop indoors for handmade products.

Being a girl who has spent many a winter in Germany, seeing winter-y events pop up in Boston excites me because in Germany, weather doesn't stop anyone from having a good time - it's one festival after another. And sure it's cold and blah blah blah but it's also a lot of fun to grab a coffee, walk in the snow, and escape the frosty air indoors at a beautiful market like this one. I really enjoy shopping online but for me, there's nothing quite like a little human contact and wintertime in the northeast can be long and depressing if you don't get out and meet the locals. So if I haven't convinced you to attend yet, then you may want to take a look at the vendor profiles here - lots of unique items, most of whom I've never heard of, like My Sunset Road, Bumble Belly Designs, Swirly Designs, Happy Art Studio, Minka Jewelry, Sew Cuties, and Curly Girl Design who plans to open a local storefront in Belmont on December 15th called Marmalade. We need more stores in Boston, so congrats Curly Girl Design.

Motley Home will have a booth too! I hope they
bring along some of their Jonathan Adler pottery, it's hard to
find in Boston and they have the largest collection.

The SoWa market kicks off on Saturday morning and runs all day from 10-8 and again on Sunday from 10-6. And if you can't make Saturday but want to join the fun on Sunday, then you're in for a treat because the Bazaar Bizarre will be in town on Sunday (another awesome event) and it's within walking distance of the market so you can hit them both. I'm excited they are both happening on the same weekend, more goods to look at, more indie artists to support, more more more! And since I support the independent arts, decor8 is also a sponsor! Yeah!
