SOWA Boston's Open Market

Sunday was a warm bright day, pretty much the perfect fall day for the end of October.

I managed to escape for a few hours and did something I've been wanting to do for a while, visit Boston's SOWA Open Market.
What made it even more special, was having my daughter with me. We’ve had very few chances to be out and about by ourselves the past few years. We actually made it to the last show of the season.
It’s already on our calender for next spring!
Held in Boston’s south end, with free parking! The Market hosts a wide variety of vendors, from hand-crafted accessories, original art, antiques or just a fresh loaf of bread, you'll find painters, sculptors, photographers, clothing and jewelry designers, milliners, handbag designers, house wares, antique dealers, florists, bakers, and local farmer's produce. Vendors have to apply for admission into the market, and vendors may change from week to week.
From what we witnessed, it would not matter which show you choose to go to. All the shows should be interesting and fun.

Here are a few of the items we were lucky to scoop up.

It was also wonderful meeting other Etsy sellers. You don’t often get a chance to meet other virtual shop owners. Especially nice when the chance meeting turns out to be someone on your favorite sellers list.
Best of show...we loved enhabiten's items..lovely!

Quick.. go add SOWA to next springs calender!
