Wears + Wares

Have you ever loved that new whatever-it-is you bought, only to find a dozen other people with the same thing? Well, Alicia tipped me off to a new "young designer's market" opening in Downtown Crossing that will give you your fill of few-of-a-kinds. Wears + Wares was created by "Boston area designers seeking a regular market venue for selling and promoting their wares." The markets will offer everything from furniture and fashion to housewares, paper goods, textiles, jewelry and accessories, all from some of the most up-and-coming designers in Boston.

Wears + Wares will hold five pre-holiday markets: November 11 and 18, and December 2, 9 and 16, from 11:00 to 5:00. Next March, they will begin holding the markets on a weekly basis. Wears + Wares is located in the lobby of 101 Arch Street, but watch it, because the entrance is on Summer St.

I'm thrilled to hear about this. It'll be interesting to see what risks these designers take. I can't wait.
