Tomorrow’s weather looks to be perfect for a day out celebrating local art, design and the opening of the brand new Baxter Park. There will be an outdoor marketplace, food trucks, live music, a Steampunk Exhibition and fireworks at 8pm!
The event opens at 11am and closes after the fireworks. It promises to be a fantastic day and I hope to see you there!
There will be cheesecake (thanks to 7ate9 Bakery) and donuts (Union Square Donuts), as well as hats and accessories, jewelry, donuts, clever and hip tshirts, cheesecake, clothing, donuts, artwork, and did I mention cheesecake and donuts?
And, at the Somerville Soap Works table we’ll be raffling off a Muskat Studios print! No purchase necessary and you don’t have to be present to win, just sign up for our mailing list and be entered to win!
I’ve been making soap for about a year now, and until recently I’ve been mostly making it for myself and sharing with some friends. Beginning earlier this year, I started selling my soap, using word of mouth to get customers: most of the folks who bought from me either knew me directly or knew someone else who did!
This coming weekend, however, we’re taking our first tentative steps out into the wide, wide world with the Somerville Local First “Local is for Lovers” show at the Center for Arts at the Armory, and so all week we’ve been making preparations! Come on Sunday from 11am to 5pm and see all that the Somerville area has to offer in the way of artisanal products!
