Blog and Tweet Boston's Meet the Makers Event

          Earlier this week Blog and Tweet Boston teamed up with Olives and Grace and Gifted, two adorable shops in the South End for a fun event where we were able to learn about and sample products from local artisan vendors including:

           Porcelain and Stone by Kimberly Huestis: Handmade jewelry crafted from porcelain in Cambridge, MA. Many of her pieces have a nautical theme, which is fun and perfect for summer!

            Moody Beauty by Amy Fleischer features luxurious and nutrient filled skin oil hand produced in small batches in Newburyport, MA, which leaves your skin feeling soft and healthy.

           Moochie's Macarons by Nina DiBona Pauk  Authentic French macarons named after her dog, Moochie. There were a variety of flavors available to try, but my favorite was the lavender honey.


           Tea Cuvee by Evy Chen Is a delicious cold brewed tea with unique flavors like rosemary orange. It's a great alternative to coffee, and more natural and healthy without all the caffeine!

           Confabulous Cases by Ali are fun, customizable, and affordable cases for your iphone. At $5 each, these two piece cases with interchangeable backgrounds make it easy to be versatile and stylish!

           Travessia Winery is a micro-winery based in New Bedford, that produces wines from locally sourced grapes in MA. We sampled a Chardonnay, which was dry and oaked six months, the Vidal Blanc, which recently won the best overall wine at Boston's Wine Riot, and my favorite a Rose made from Pinot Noir grapes. 

           Round House Jewelry by Lisa Roy Sachs features gorgeous  handmade jewelry of unusual components all made from clay, produced in Boston, MA.

            Yuthica by Chinku Mahindra Soy based candles which last longer and smell amazing. We were also able to try some of the new skincare products which have not yet been released including body butter and creams.

            Luke Adams Glass, Luke Adams and Laurie Landerholm This was one of my favorites of the night, Laurie demonstrated the entire process of creating glass beads. It was amazing to watch, and the finished product was beautiful!

       Blog and Tweet Boston is a group I co-founded with Jen that connects bloggers and local businesses through fun events. We have more fun events coming up at Sweet Caroline's on 7/6 and Delete Tattoo on 7/10. If you have a business and are interested in holding a blogger event, email us to get in touch.
