From Gotham to Beantown: The {NewNew} Heads to Boston's SOWA Open Market August 9th

Continuing the momentum of a successful summer presence throughout the New York Craft Fair scene, The {NewNew} will be bringing some Gotham love to Boston’s SOWA Open Market on August 9.

Located in Boston’s South End, a well-known artist community, SOWA will be host to 18 {NewNew} members who will make the trek to Massachusetts and sell their artisan wares to the denizens of Beantown. Look for blue banners to spot The {NewNew} members among this market’s vendors.

"So many of our members have ties to Boston: friends, family, fond memories; so we thought a partnership with their handmade Flea Market would be mutually beneficial," said Kimm Alfonso, the group's leader.

"Like SOWA, we will showcase a broad range of handmade products - clothing, home décor, jewelry, accessories, paper goods, bath and body products, toys - and hope to help encourage more people to embrace the new craft movement."
