Since leaving the South End I’ve been back almost every Sunday for the one event that I just can’t get enough of – the SoWa Vintage Market. Every week a whole block of Harrison street is filled with artists, farmers, crafters, food trucks, and vintage sellers. It’s the only European-style open air market in Boston and it’s not just worth a trip, it’s worth a trip every Sunday.
Union Square Donuts makes the most amazing homemade donuts I’ve ever had. But you’ve gotta go early because they sell out quick! Here I have a strawberry donut, my favorite summer flavor. If that doesn’t start you off to a good day, nothing will.
Next stop, vintage! I always go to Rosanna’s booth first. She’s the first clothing vendor on the right when you enter the building. She has the most amazing brands (Burberry, Chanel, Ferragamo, Louboutin) at very low prices. I got this Dior from her shop. Not to mention she’s a sweetheart!
I love the hunt for a good piece, and let me tell you, I always find one. The real problem is trying to stop myself from buying everything on the rack. I try to find good quality pieces that I know I can style in many ways. Designers brands are a plus but I don’t shop them exclusively.
