Calling All Artists, Antique Dealers, Farmers, Students…

February 14, 2007

I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to blog about this. Chris, founder of the fabulous South End Open Market, just sent along some amazing news… I have to shout it from the rooftops and you, my friend, need to know about it!

Calling All Artists, Antique Dealers, Farmers, Students...Starting in May, not only will Boston see the South End Open Market open for the season, but Providence will have one to call their very own at the corner of Westminister and Union on Saturdays – free admission and parking, too.

Get involved! If you want to show your work at this amazing fair, use this form and select the dates you’d be interested in participating. (Here’s some vendor information.) I’m already thinking of many Providence pals who may want to get involved (Peggy and Jason) but what about Brooklyn and Connecticut?? Providence is relatively close and has a train station only a few blocks away from the market location. It’s a great chance to make friends and locate new customers, and take a mini vacation. Providence is just lovely in the warmer months – so much going on downtown.

Opening day is May 12th and the market will run on Saturdays until October 27th. If you are coming from downtown, there are lots of hotels around the market, as well as a massive mall, fun shops, great places to eat, and a Starbucks almost next door to the market. Gotta love that.

Learn more about the Providence Open Market here.

Here’s some pics from the South End Open Market in Boston from ’06. This gives you a glimpse of what the new Providence market may look like. Chris clearly makes each market fun and picks amazing vendors. I loved attending these markets last year and I’ll definitely hit the Providence one this year.

Calling All Artists, Antique Dealers, Farmers, Students...Congratulations Chris, I’m sure Providence will warmly welcome you with open arms. Lots of great peeps down there!

I want this ice cream skirt…

Calling All Artists, Antique Dealers, Farmers, Students...View some photos from the market in Boston on Flickr… Fun!

If you know of anyone who would like to be a vendor, please forward this post to them. If you’d like to blog about this call for vendors, feel free to use the images I’ve collaged above -no problem. The goal is to spread the word.

Thanks everyone!

Sandberg Wallpaper + Textiles (Sweden)

February 6, 2007

Textiles and wallpaper always make me happy. These are from Sandberg in Sweden. I love these images, and happy that wallpaper is still very much in vogue here in the states as well as in other parts of the world. It’s wonderful to see more and more pretty papers, and less fear of wallpaper overall. Prints and patterns are SO exciting!
