Shopping. Fundraising. Join us December 11th & 12th!
Our annual holiday event is especially important because we'll be donating a portion of our weekend sales to Rosie's Place, a local organization whose mission is close to our hearts.
Rosie's Place was founded in 1974 as the first women's shelter in the United States. Located in Boston, their mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity, and find security in their lives.
Today, Rosie's Place is a multi-service community center that offers women emergency shelter and meals, and so much more: a food pantry, ESOL classes, legal assistance, wellness care, one-on-one support, housing and job search services, and community outreach. Here women will find support, opportunity and the tools they need to make a new start.
Rosie's Place relies SOLELY on the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporations and DOES NOT accept any city, state, or federal funding.
So what's going on besides making a dent in your gift lists?
Erin Heath, the creative force behind Forêt, joins us again to create her magical wreaths of fresh and foraged materials. Wreaths can be picked up at Pod December 11-12th. Erin will be on-hand at Pod Saturday, Dec.11th making a few extras. We recommend that you pre order . Orders close Wednesday, Dec.8th at 1pm.
We'll have some freshly baked holiday cookies for sale from our talented friends at
Breadboard Bakery. Speaking of bakeries, we're so excited to welcome
Polka Dog to the party. They'll be at Pod on Saturday, Dec.11th from 11a-3p with the best, all-natural treats for your canine & feline friends. They're made right here in Boston!
Do not forget the RAFFLE!! You know our raffles are pretty great and this year won't disappoint. Anyone who makes a purchase at Pod this weekend can throw their name into the 'hat' to win. Presently, we have very generous donations from: Cutty's, Bon, Lite & Cycle, Sofra Bakery, Covet & Lou, Hi-Rise Bread Co., SAULT New England, Bagelsaurus, Curio Spice Co., Wine & Cheese Cask, Field & Vine, and Whimsey by Lindsey. This list could grow.
It's a fun time. We help you out, you help us out, we all help Rosie's out. There's a lotta love around this weekend and we hope you will find a moment to participate. XO
