BEAD + FIBER, which has a Harrison St. address is actually physically located on Thayer St., which runs off of Harrison Ave., in the Thayer St Arts district, in the SoWa neighborhood of Boston, a reclaimed pocket of the South End featuring former factory and industrial buildings, now home to unique shops, residences, galleries and restaurants. One can easily spend the entire day in the Thayer St. Arts district which is a self contained promenade featuring over 35 independent businesses, galleries, shops and a cafe, as well as more than 65 artist studios.
On the first Friday of every month, the Thayer St. Arts district hosts First Fridays, from 5-9pm, year round. Also located in this district every Sunday, 10-4pm is the SoWa Vintage Market, and during the winter months, the indoor Sowa Winter Market featuring local arts and foods. From May 6 through the end of October, the SoWa Open Markets, which are outdoor arts, crafts, produce and food markets, are open every Sunday, 10-4pm.
Lots of reasons to be sure to include a visit to Thayer St any time of year!
