Buy Handmade

As part of the second annual Salem Open Studios, Feed Your Head will be hosting a Boston Handmade Trunk Show on Saturday, December 8, from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday, December 9, from 10 am to 5 pm.

The Etsy Boston group, Boston Handmade, is a gathering of artists and designers who support one another in the pursuit of creativity made by hand. All members of Boston Handmade are registered sellers on, an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade, and are locally based in Massachusetts.

The Boston Handmade Trunk Show will offer a unique experience for shoppers to support local artists, designers, and business while getting a leg up on holiday shopping and enjoying light refreshments. Instead of an impersonal shopping trip to the mall to buy mass-produced goods, shoppers will be able to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience discovering unique handmade goods from art to jewelry to paper goods to accessories while getting the opportunity to meet and talk with the artists behind the creations.

Participating artisans are as follows:

Dawn Wilson

Amy Olson

Jaye Frisina

Allison Fraske

Jessica Burko
