Boston Handmade is a collection of boston area artists, artisans and craftspeople with shops on etsy.com

"Be Mine" The 2nd Annual Boston Handmade Valentine Show
Friday, February 6 ~ 5pm to 9pm
450 Harrison Avenue ~ Gallery #31 ~ 31 Thayer Street
South End, Boston, MA – Boston Handmade announces the 2nd Annual Be Mine Valentine

Show featuring hand crafted Valentines and gifts for friends, family, and lovers, to be held on Friday, February 6th, from 5-9pm at 450 Harrison Avenue.

Sponsored in part by GTI Properties and the individual members of Boston Handmade, this one-night-only event coincides with the First Friday open studios and gallery receptions in the SoWa arts district of Boston’s
South End.

Twenty local artists, artisans and craftspeople will be exhibiting their one-of-a-kind and limited edition works at Be Mine, which is the 2009 Boston Handmade debut after their successful 2008 Downtown Crossing holiday gallery. This special Valentine event includes live acoustic music by Peter Paulousky and new exhibitor designs created especially for the winter
season and Valentine’s Day.

Boston Handmade goes green by making clothing, accessories, paper goods, ceramics, housewares, art and jewelry by hand not by machine, locally rather than overseas, and often by upcycling, recycling, and using vintage materials. Works on view and available for sale at Be Mine include a range of media such as polymer clay jewelry by Betsy Baker of Stonehouse Studio, hand-spun cotton figurines by Crystal Hanehan of Vintage By Crystal, vegan friendly handmade soaps by DeShawn Marie, photographic mixed-media art by Jessica Burko, and handknit outerwear by Sedruola Maruska of Yarn Obsession and Sea Glass Wearables and Home Decor by Sea Glass Things. Visit Be Mine to find the perfect gift for all your Valentines.

Boston Handmade is a gathering of colleagues who support one another in the pursuit of creativity made by hand. All members of Boston Handmade are registered sellers on Etsy.com and are all based in Massachusetts. For more information visit http://www.bostonhandmade.org/
