Tales From a Shop Dog

The holidays are coming!

The holidays are coming!

Did you know we (meaning Mom) is doing a bunch of popup markets this holiday season?! (I'll be getting my beauty rest).

The first market is Monday November 27th from 4-7 at The Hawthorne in Kenmore Square with a whole bunch of other amazing makers.

The next, I very well might make an appearance at... because we're hosting it! The Highland Hot Block (the 199 Highland Ave section) is having it's very first #HotBlockHoliday with ALL FEMALE vendors popping up in The Workshop Salon, our shop and 7ate9 Bakery.

Who will be there? Well....

In 7ate9 Bakery you'll find:

MegaMade Woodworks and Mud & Yarn

In our shop will be:

Us (obvi), Nora Miller Jewelry and Hollis Leather Goods

In The Workshop Salon:

Amanda Kressler Designs, Aud & El Candle Co. , Brown & Coconut and Intention560

AND the Armory next door is hosting the Holiday Davis Flea!

The following weekend, Sunday the 10th Mom will be at 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington from 12-4.

And THEN back at The Hawthorne on Monday the 18th from 4-7pm.

Wondering when the shop will be open this holiday season? EVERYDAY starting 11/28 (except 12/4) so I'll need lots of love, partying and chicken free treats to fuel my greeter obligations.

Can't wait to see you soon!

We've come a long way and so has the Highland Hot Block!

We've come a long way and so has the Highland Hot Block!

Guys, we've been BUSY here at the shop and I'm exhausted! It's been 7 years since mom and I opened the shop and we've been hustling every day. We've come a long way though, if I do say so myself. Just look at these before and afters!

I mean even my beds have gotten an upgrade! (I told you I was tired...)


But, we are now the old ladies on the block! All of our neighbors have come in over the past years, so we thought it was about time to introduce our neighbors here on the Highland Hot Block in Somerville. 

First to come along a few years after us was M.F. Dulock Pasture Raised Meats

I stand and drool outside their door everyday, and it's the worst/the best when their customers come in with big bags of meat! Sometimes they even bring me the dog treats the butcher's make. I love my neighbors!

Next to come along was The Workshop Salon.

Uncle Tarley opened her hair salon and we instantly became besties. She even bought me my winter coat (pictures to come in a winter blog post, promise) and lets me nap in the sun spots from time to time. The other stylists in there also love me (obvi) and they shower me with love and partying daily, even though they're always super busy. I love my neighbors!

Then along came 7ate9 Bakery

Did you know they make Boston's Best Cheesecake?! Well, that doesn't matter much to me, but they have TREATS! Auntie Sarah makes me do tricks for them, so I do... I know my role. But she gives me so many snacks and so much love, it's ok. Mom is also well caffeinated thanks to their Almond Milk Lattes, so that makes everyone happy. I love my neighbors!

The newest member of the Hot Block is KMID interior design offices.



Their offices are by far the prettiest (sorry mom and everyone else, but it's what they do!) Earl, their shop dog, isn't a big fan of me...but the ladies smile and love me when they pop in the shop. I love my neighbors!

So next time you're coming to shower me with love, stop on in and say Heeeeyyyyy to our amazing neighbors. Tell them you're a friend of Mayble's!

Now off for a sunshine nap.
