If our gift guides haven't encouraged you to shop local, maybe the tenth anniversary of the SoWa Holiday Market will seal the deal for scouting out the best local crafters and artisans. This weekend (Saturday 11am to 6pm and Sunday 11am to 5pm), just $5 admission allows you access to booths from more than 50 vendors, including New England-made Osmium men's apparel, Joyo laser cut jewelry from Scituate, as well as cool ceramics, letterpress goods, and funky Vintage by Crystal ornaments (which move super fast). Want first dibs on the market? Snag a $15 VIP ticket to shop from 10am to 11am tomorrow.
