Eat Boutique Pop Up at Fringe

in Events, Food Gifts, Massachusetts


Pop up shops are the best. The sweet and funky shop we set up at Fringe in Somerville, Massachusetts last month was almost too rad for words. Okay, I’ll find some… how about…

Thank you! Really, I’m just so grateful that hundreds of you showed up to take a peek at our collection of food gifts intermixed with the best designs from Fringe’s artists and designers. I’m also thankful for Mike from Repeat Press and Erin and Rose, the ladies of Foret Design, who helped to pull it all together.

And guess what, we’re planning another one! Eat Boutique will host a Spring Pop Up Shop with all the good folks at Fringe on April 5-6, 2014. Marisa McClellan of Food in Jars will join in, sampling, demoing and signing her new cookbook, Preserving by the Pint. You should come!

By the way, do you know a space somewhere in the good ol’ U.S.A. that is perfect for an Eat Boutique Pop Up Shop (or maybe a future cookbook signing!)? Just let me know in the comments. If we host an event at the spot you suggest, YOU get gold stars for the recommendation and a gift box of goodies directly from me.
