Hi, everyone! Barbara here, and I want to share a great tip for folks in the Boston area. While Daily Grommet spoils us by bringing unique gift ideas into our homes each day, sometimes, it's pretty darn awesome just to get out and be among product creators and artisans. I know Jules loves this, too, as she keeps us up to date on her own travels through her "Real Deal Road Trip" series. Last year, she visited Wellesley Marketplace, which is an event near and dear to me because I'm part of the organization that presents the event as a community fundraiser each year. I think events like this are the perfect complement to what Daily Grommet does so well -- we celebrate innovation and product creators, and provide a "big tent" for artisans who may not have the scale to become a Grommet (at least not yet....we actually have one exhibitor who plans to use her proceeds from Marketplace to launch her website!). Well this year -- we invite you to come out to to join us. We'll have over 130 artisans under the roof of the Wellesley Middle School on November 20, where shoppers will find a fresh mix of exhibitors showcasing the latest trends in jewelry, home, personal, and children's accessories.
We're providing Grommet fans in the Boston area (well, hey, or really anyone who wants to come to Wellesley on November 20!) with a chance to win 4 "Premium" shopping tickets, which gives you first crack at the event by allowing you in at 9 a.m. versus 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 20. It's the best way to beat the crowds, which do begin to build by mid-morning.
Wellesley Marketplace will take place from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 20, at the Wellesley Middle School. Admission is $10 for Adults, and $5 for Students and Seniors. Tickets will be available at the door. Premium shopping tickets are also available at Wellesley Roche Bros. and at the door for $15, allowing early bird shoppers to get the first crack at Marketplace for an exclusive shopping hour from 9 -10 a.m.
We'd love to see you! Do you plan to join us at Wellesley Marketplace? You can also connect with Wellesley on Facebook and see who else is planning on coming.
