Tours and Tickets

Address
Neighborhood: Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
How to get there

Happy surprise finding this Boston gem! It’s more of a museum where one can buy the items on display.
It’s tucked up on the second floor and bright and light. Artists make things in every price range.
Come in, it’s free - take a look around and if something catches your eye - buy it!

I usually do not have much time...just sort of run in and check out the shop quickly, but this week I was dawdling and realized that this shop is not just a shop, it actually has a gallery above. So up the steps (there is a chair lift but no elevator apparent). In the gallery space they are currently showing well designed and constructed furniture. I know nothing about furniture, and an attendant did not show until I turned to leave, so I don't have a back story. but I will keep a watch on what is exhibited for the future. Back in the shop, I saw as usual many things I liked, but all of it is very pricey. Not just well made, but maybe over priced for items of their types. For instance, I had purchased a mug of a certain artist not to long ago for $58 and it was $78 here. Either amount is a lot for a mug. The moral of the story is do not come here unless you want to see crafts people adequately compensated for their work.
