This shirt does not sit well on me. But with ruffles, pastel birds, and a peplum frill, it’s still a favorite spring piece of mine. As are these yellow jeans. Which I’m realizing go with about ninety percent of my closet somehow… :)

As long as I’ve been in Boston, I’ve loved spending Sundays at the SoWa Open Market in the South End, and I’m so excited that an expansion of it, Greenway Open Market, is now open on Saturdays along the Rose Kennedy Greenway. At both of these outdoor set-ups, you can find the most adorable little eco-boutique, Nancy’s Gone Green.
Nancy and Mary, a mother-daughter team, opened Nancy’s Gone Green in 2008 with the hope to make our world a little bit more beautiful, every day. And beautiful, they make it. I would buy their entire stock of inventory if I could, from the eco-chic dressesskirtsshirts and more, to the fair trade and recycled jewelry and accessories. The best part is how affordable the products are– half under $50… how often do you see that in small boutiques??
Greenway Open Market is open every Saturday June through October, and SoWa is open every Sunday May through October. Though if you’re not in Boston, you can order everything found at their shop online here!
Hey Boston cuties! It’s time for another Swapaholics Swap!
This month we’re swapping denim– and let me tell you I’ve got quite a drawer full to contribute!
July 18. 7-9 pm. 40Berkeley in the South End.
$10 but use code soanthro for 25% off! Bring 3-5 denim pieces to swap and you’ll come home with just as many.
See you, maybe?
It’s Sunday, so if you’re in Boston, why aren’t you at the SoWa Open Market?
I spent last weekend there as a part of rendez-vous new england, but had been before since my friends all used to play soccer at a nearby field and we would sneak away during half times of their games…!
It’s open every Sunday from the beginning of May until the end of October, and it is chock-full of vendors: jewelry, art, furniture, crafts. SO hard to keep your wallet in your pocket. Plus, there’s a vintage market inside. Terribly tempting.
There were three vendors that definitely stood out from the rest though:
Grey’s Fabric and Notions: This fabric/sewing shop, though a big name at SoWa, actually has a permanent location here everyday, not open just with the market. Our group met here, and even though the store isn’t huge, I could have spent hours just walking around and soaking in all of the beautiful details. So very grateful that they hosted us.
Recycled SilverWear by John Atkinson: I found this jewelry vendor inside in the Vintage Market and could not resist making a purchase. I’ve had a spoon ring for years and have seen spoon bracelets once or twice before, but never as pretty and as good quality as these. Going to be hard to resist going back for more!
Lady Luxe: Another vintage shop, and one I wish I could have spent more time in. Lovely clothes, hats, and accessories. I’m in LOVE with the sparkly bow brooch I picked up, and the gold sequin key holder– so perfect for slipping into an evening bag at night rather than my chunky lanyard! Lady Luxe also has a permanent location in Cambridge, click here for info.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the day:
