Taking a Breather......

SoWa Vintage Market (SVM), located INSIDE at 460C Harrison Ave @ Thayer Street.

It’s nice to be inside, as much as we love being outside, the days we had torrential downpours and tornado warnings (!!!) we remained open for business and stayed (mostly) dry.

The quality and assortment of items presented at SoWa is amazing. Jewelry, Fashion, Art, Signs, Found Objets, Decor, Furniture & Accessories, Mid-Century, some traditional antiques, Prints, Maps, etc etc etc.

Boston is ready for and needs this European style market as an alternative to shopping big box and mainstream. SoWa’s customers like to discover the items offered to create their own unique style at home, work, or studio. New vendors come weekly, and your fave vendors bring new finds each week as well, so it’s always different. You never know what you will find; the hunt is part of the thrill of shopping vintage.

Lots of furniture, smalls and decorative elements can be found each week at SoWa along with vintage clothing, jewelry & accessories. From high end antiques and decorative arts to reasonably priced pieces, furnish your home or an apartment on your budget…it’s fun to hunt at SoWa Vintage.

We’re taking a breather for the July 4th holiday…we’ll be back on July 11th…wait til you see what’s coming into SVM upon our return. Fantabulous! Come see.
