SoWa open market.

Couldn’t let a little rain stop me from coming out to the first SoWa Open Market of the year. Per usual, lots of incredible art, jewelry, crafts, furniture and food. Snapped a few photos as I walked around the market. I’m resolving to make this a regular occurrence this year.

The vintage section of the market was probably my favorite part. No purchases today but I will for sure be coming back.

Had to bring home some goodies. These Corn & Co popcorn flavors were delicious.

SoWa holiday market.

On Sunday I visited the SoWa Holiday Market for the first time. Although I’d heard good things I arrived with pretty low expectations. I’ve been to other holiday craft markets and was envisioning a collection of kind of chotchkie ornaments and snow globes. I have to say that I was SO pleasantly surprised by the quality of really everything at this market. I was actually overwhelmed by how many things I loved and wanted. I kept myself in check and only made two purchases but the damage could have been much worse. Here are just a sampling of the photos I took.


and then the food…
