BOSTON HANDMADE MARKETPLACE
in Union Square, Somerville
SATURDAY, JULY 10, 3 - 7 P.M.
(rain date Sunday, July 11)
ArtsUnion continues the 2010 series with the Boston Handmade Marketplace in Union Square, Somerville. The outdoor market features work by Massachusetts artists, craftspeople, and artisans associated with Boston Handmade and Etsy.com. Curated by Jessica Burko and Boston Handmade, the fair promotes local, independent businesses producing handmade, one-of-a-kind works in small studio environments, not factories. More than 25 artists and craftspeople will be on hand to sell handmade jewelry, clothing, accessories, housewares, art, photography, toys, and sculpture.
Also on tap will be live music by The Grown Up Noise, One Happy Island, and acraft demonstrations by The Common Cod Fiber Guild. Boston Handmade and Etsy.com help people make a living by making things. From the creative to the curious, items at the Boston Handmade Marketplace will be one-of-kind, limited edition, and produced by local artisans.
Thanks in part to The Somerville Arts Council and Etsy.com, local artists, artisans, and craftspeople associated with Boston Handmade will be in Union Square Somerville for our 3rd year showing and selling handmade jewelry, clothing, accessories, housewares, art, photography, ceramics, glass, soaps, and more!
