For those vintage lovers that are looking for a smaller size market that can be peacefully browsed through during a morning’s shopping, SoWa Vintage Market in Boston totally fits the bill. It is located in the basement of a warehouse complex, and hosts around 30 vendors displaying their goods. This market is a weekly affair, taking place come rain or shine, so the shopping trips may be somewhat shorter during Boston’s winter months – though the basement area does remain pleasantly cool in summer.
The area of the city where SoWa Vintage Market is located is known for being a little pricey, attracting artists and hipster types for casual shopping and brunching. This comes off in the pricing of a lot of the goods on offer at this market, but that is not to say that great deals can not be found. It is a quieter market too, so no need to set alarms for the crack of dawn to have the vaguest hope at finding a great buy. Stroll on in at any time during a Sunday and it is likely that there will be something tempting to turn browsers into buyers.
SoWa Vintage Market is becoming known for its great selection of vintage clothing, and the pieces of art on display from around the world. Alongside these goods, there are also vintage cameras, collectible vinyls, 80s video games, fur coats, furniture and other household items. All of the goods are in great condition, and the stall holders obviously take pride in their curation and are more than happy to strike up a conversation about their pieces.
There are numerous different food trucks among SoWa Vintage Market, which means that though the market may only entertain visitors for half a day, the rest of the day can easily be spent eating, which is what Sundays are all about.
