Venture away from the city’s traditional boutiques and head to the SoWa Open Market (short for “south of Washington Street”), open Sundays through October 30. Here, the eclectic wares offered by dozens of local vendors have a homegrown, DIY vibe. Haberdash Vintage, for example, sells one-of-a-kind vintage frocks, shoes, and bijoux out of a shiny 1954 Bellwood trailer. And Black Sheep Designs offers delicate jewelry made from antique keys, coins, and other found materials.
