A September to Remember

September 25 was one for the books (not to mention the blogs). Thanks to all the hungry, happy people who braved the rain to eat, drink, and shop an amazing selection of vendors.

Bleeding Heart Bakery’s juice bar hawked fresh green juice (Vitamin D is said to enhance shopping stamina).

Lisa Kingsley made her Dose debut with French linen bags and her new collection of pounded silver and gold accessories.

And the Cutest Family Award goes to…the Each clan, selling wild-caught Alaskan salmon (frozen and smoked, served on bagels with Zingerman’s cream cheese) caught by the affable Mr. John Each.

The only thing sweeter than hipster love at the WeAreMannequin racks…

…are the actual sweets from Sweet Cakes Bakery.

But it didn’t stop there. Greer peddled charming notepads, stationery and curiosities for the home.

Bill Kim brought 500 pork and cilantro-stuffed dumplings, which barely lasted through noon. (Thankfully soba noodle salad, spiced edamame and his brand new Seoul Sauce kept the masses fed.)

Lydia Brockman’s hand-dyed scarves are the fashion equivalent of dumplings; they sell like wildfire.

Who needs Heinz when you can have an all-natural alternative? Local Folks Foods kept Dose folks sated with condiments galore: tomato-packed marinara, apple butter, blueberry preserves, and hot sauce.

Penelope’s brought tailored menswear to distract the male species from the Bears game. It worked.
