Boston Handmade Marketplace

by Jessica Burko of Reclaimed to You

The 3rd Annual Boston Handmade Marketplace is coming to Union Square Somerville, Saturday, July 10th! Mark your calendars, grab your reusable shopping bag, put on your dancing shoes and meet us in Somerville!

More than 25 locally grown artists, artisans, and craftspeople will be showing and selling handmade jewelry, clothing, accessories, ceramics, art, photography, handspun yarn, vegan soaps, handblown glass, and more, in Union Square (at the intersection of Washington, Prospect & Somerville Ave.) on Saturday, July 10, 2010, 3-7pm, with a rain date of Sunday, July 11.

This outdoor exhibition promotes local independent businesses and individuals creating one-of-a-kind and limited edition handmade works in small studio environments, not factories. In addition to the exhibitors at the 2010 Boston Handmade Marketplace
there will be live music and craft demonstrations throughout the day. Performers include Boston bands The Grownup Noise and One Happy Island.This event is sponsored in part by Etsy.com, The Somerville Arts Council, and The Massachusetts Cultural Council. Thanks for supporting local handmade!
