Road Trip!

This Sunday, October 31, 2010, The {NewNew} will be trekking to Boston for the SoWa Open Market's last day of the season. It's a Halloween bash that includes pumpkin-carving, free treats, live music, and a handmade Halloween costume contest with $250 for the winner---in addition to its usual offering of fine handmade wares. This will be The NewNew's second Halloween showing and fourth trip to SoWa over all (the others have been in Spring and Summer).

The dressing-up aspect of this event is huge. Even participating artists/craftspeople are supposed to appear in costume. It's called the "Market of the Living Dead," and the theme is "Zombies," so there would seem to be a strong preference for ghoulish get-ups. I was planning to go as a bee. Maybe I should make that a dead bee.

In any case, come see us! The market is located at 460 Harrison Ave. in Boston's artsy South End, and is open from 10 am - 4 pm.

Here's a little taste of what you'll find from The NewNew:

Until next time --
