I took the kids into Boston last week to finally see the Boston Handmade Downtown Shop in
action. It is fantastic!
The transformation that was made by the Boston Handmade Team members is just incredible. It
looks like it has been there for a long time, not just a few weekends.
We found many of my bags right up front by the main door and then ventured further through the
shop. Below is a picture of the Etsy t-shirst and totes being proudly displayed.
I even made a few purchases! I bought an adorable bunny puzzle from Tactile Baby and some
soap from DeShawn Marie.
Don't forget to stop by 505 Washington Street before December 28 to see the shop!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm keeping busy with Holiday Orders and will
have a post about the Shop in Downtown Boston soon. I promise.

It is still in the beta testing mode but so far it is looking great! I only have a couple of items
right now but will be working to build my Artfire gallery like I did my Etsy shop. Please stay
tuned and check it out! For now I will have similar items in both shops but that may change
Artfire grows and I see what their community demands.
The amazing Etsy Team called Boston Handmade has invited me to

This week they began working on the space to make it a Winter Wonderland. I am taking a
lot of bags there this weekend and will take some pictures when I go. In the meantime, if
like to see how the space is shaping up you can check out the official Boston Handmade
