Holiday shopping is one of my favorite things; and my second favorite sort of shopping after grocery. So naturally when an option presents itself that combines my top two shopping passions, dreams come true and I spend too much money on things that are not entirely necessary (but at the same time completely necessary).
The ever elegant Eat Boutique’s holiday pop-up shop has a full blown residence this year in the Fenway, directly next to Sweet Cheeks (our Boston BBQ situation with epic brisket and biscuits). Open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday for three weeks, the online store has been brought to life in a cozy little nook complete with pleasant people, tasty samples, and mini events.
Maggie Battista, the local brain behind Eat Boutique, was there giving out smiles and information on everything out for sale. The little shop had a steady flow of traffic and was adorably quaint. It was just so lovely, and I highly recommend paying them a visit this weekend or next. Sample some goodies. Chat with Maggie and some of the makers. Get a present just for yourself that you don’t want to share.
Can’t make it to the shop? Be not afeard, trendy food shopper. Eat Boutique is primarily an online shop, check it out here.
