Word on the street is that the downsizing trend is losing steam in 2013. Yea, Americans are still drowning in debt but we’re all like, “psh. Whatever. Bigger is better.” Homes are getting bigger, cars are being assigned to each and every family member, and we’re blithely running full speed toward our miserably penniless futures. Well, not everyone is looking at simplification so disdainfully. I was surprised to hear that my favorite indoor monthly market was moving from its posh location at the River East Art Center after two successful years to an intimate venue in Wicker Park. WHAT?! Who do they think they are to be so brilliant?
Let’s Get to Know Each Other
Utilizing the smaller space, Dose promises consumers a more cerebral shopping event. Find a brand you love, learn why they do what they do, make friends, and buy stuff. Wiz your wallet with the brain it’s always hoped for, be brave and make a friend, have a heart and support local indie designers and entrepreneurs. Bonus: Nearby indies will benefit from the market’s move to Wicker Park and the new business they’ll attract from the hipsters and trend hunters who follow Dose.
The Best Part
For the next 12 weeks, Dose will be happening, not once a month, but EVERY SUNDAY! Each week has a unique theme. Each ticket is now only $5. Along with our reoccurring favorites, 10 new ‘Dosers’ will debut in the weeks to come.
Be there or be square this Sunday. Check below for the address and further details. If you see me, say hi! Let’s shop together.
