SoWa Vintage Market - Boston

I live about twenty miles from Boston, so I venture into the South End for brunch and the SoWa open Market every now and then. I thought I'd share a few shots from my trip last Sunday. We started our day with brunch + a spicy bloody Mary at Gas Light. I love French Bistro's..then my friend, children {I'm starting them early} and I walked down to the market....here's a snippet of our day..

This original map is also available in a print at The Roving Home! {would look cool in a child's room or study}


Tripod Lamp also available through The Roving Home. {an inspiration shot below}




My little "curly blond" assistant, preferred to push his carriage! I often drag him to flea markets and vintage shops, he seems to enjoy it {especially if he scores a match box car or two}! Also, pictured is my good friend, she was checking out a trio of gold leaf tables!



I almost snagged an elephant garden stool. I've wanted to purchase one for my porch for a while. Circa Who, also has a great selection! {below image}




I did purchase this beautiful over sized hobnail vase {i love all things hobnail} from Timeless Settings. I envision filling it with huge peonies or hydrangeas. I quickly clipped some flowers from my yard today! {below image}

of Note: I also collect + wear chunky vintage jewelry, which they had a pretty decent selection of.
The images below are a bit dark but there was also quite a bit of vintage glass, signage and furniture being sold!

liked the "hot pink" lust sign {above - very Sixx Design don't you think?}

peace out for now..have a great day!

Way too funny- I was at GAslight on Sunday morning too- and almost bought that elephant stool AND the Lust sign (which is super $$$) :) Great minds think alike! xoxo

Thanks for stopping by and giving a shout-out to SoWa Vintage Market. And of course, thanks for your photo of The Roving Home map print. I agree - the "lust" sign is very Sixx Design. Not many of us (I'm speaking for myself here) could pull that off. Great blog!

Thanks so much for visiting and blogging about SoWa Vintage Market. We're a new market this year in the adjacent building to the SoWa Open Market of indie artisans and designers. Our vintage finds and vendors change weekly.
The energy and fun is every time. SoWa rocks!

On the elephants, go for the ones with the trunks up. They are considered good luck in asia!
