New arrivals for our best year yet


This year, it's never too late to say happy new year. We loved seeing many of you at Bow Market over the holidays, and we appreciate your support as we settle into 2021. It's been an unpredictable ride, but your solidarity, in Somerville and abroad, these past few months makes it all worth it.

We're starting off the year with lots of new arrivals. From old favorites to new-to-us items, our little shop at Bow Market in Somerville, MA, has updated its stock for the new year. Look out for more stationery , including adorable sticker sets , washi tape , and our bestselling cat and dog magnets . Moreover, you'll notice a larger selection of old and new chopsticks, like our Octagonal Chopsticks in blue, red, and white. Rest assured we have your needs covered , not to mention a few incidentals you won't be able to resist.

Quite a few customers have asked us when our heat-resistant direct fire dish would return to Crane & Turtle. We are happy to announce that it is back in stock! This time, it is available in three colors: beige, mustard, and red Serve these gorgeous dishes directly from the stovetop to the dining table. Fun fact: Did you know the ceramic material of the dish allows for slow and thorough cooking? In other words, this dish is a must-have for folks who are serious about eating well.

Planning a date at home this Valentine's Day? Try these new glasses. Tsugaru Vidro Nebuta glassware brings a burst of color to traditional dining. With a design reminiscent of fireworks or, this time of year, holiday lights, Nebuta glasses evoke the "Nebuta Matsuri "festival of Tohoku, where these glasses are made. Lovers of good design will want to sip from our new sake set or tumblers.

If you are based around Somerville, visit us at Bow Market for some in-store exclusives. The creations of Otsuchi Reconstruction Sashiko Project have captured our hearts as of late, and we'd love to share them with you. Following the devastating East Japan Earthquake of 2011, women of the town of Otsuchi came together to uplift their community through sashiko. (If you are unfamiliar with the craft, think embroidery-meets-mending.) From pouches and totes to hair ties and even a sashiko kit, you'll want to incorporate these handmade pieces into your everyday life.

While we'd love to wax poetic about all of our new products (including the stationery pictured above), but we think they can speak for themselves. Peruse our site or visit us in-person at Somerville's Bow Market to see what's currently available! Click here to start shopping.
