Recap: Botodesigns @ Cabin Fever Indie Gift Show in Boston


Last weekend I participated in the 1st Cabin Fever Indie Gift Show, in Boston, organized by the SOWA Open Market team. The show was held in a newly renovated warehouse space in the thick of the Sowa Art and Media district. Aesthetically the space was great: wood floors and brick walls, plus the decorative hearts and streamers added a fun whimsical feel to the venue.

Unfortunately the buildings heating and electricity shut off every hour or so.

It did make for a lovely shadow art photo opportunity.

The staff was quick to remedy the situation each time while the buyers seemed to enjoy short and exciting moments of shopping in the dark.

Overall I had a great time meeting friendly vendors, lovely new customers, and adorable dogs.
