Amid the hustle and bustle of holiday shoppers filling Downtown Crossing this past Saturday was a familiar face, Boston's Mayor Menino.

Taking in the festivites on a busy shopping day in Downtown Crossing, Mayor Menino made a special stop into the Boston Handmade Downtown gallery. As he made his way through the shop, he took his time perusing the wide variety of goods on display, commenting on a few pieces that caught his eye, and asking questions of the artists who were working at the shop. He was happy to hear what a success the Gallery has been in just the first two and a half weeks since its opening.

After a few more minutes spent posing photos with the artists, extending friendly handshakes and exchaging kind words with shoppers the Mayor was off to finish his tour of Downtown Crossing.


  1. Wonderful day it was!

    I have a correction though. The photo was not taken by me, it was taken by Mayor Menino's photographer...she just used my camera. I wish I got her name!
