When: Saturday September 28, 2013
Where: American Field – All American Trade Show SOWA Power Station 560 Harrison Ave. Boston, MA
This past weekend in Boston there were a lot of fashion week events scheduled; I chose to attend The All American Trade Show for my Saturday Street Style post. This is the second annual pop-up market. Here is information from the website:
Participating vendors will be showcasing and selling their USA Made products. The goal of American Field is two-fold; to not only raise awareness for these quality American brands, but also to inform consumers so that they can make educated decisions about how can spend their money to rebuild the American Economy. If every consumer spent just 5% more on USA made goods, it would create nearly 1,000,000 USA jobs and assist in the building of the US economy. The only way to achieve this goal is if we work together, a rising tide raises all the boats. The American Field market will show customers and the nation the people behind this new revolution in American Manufacturing and that by voting with their dollars they can have a direct impact on jobs in this country.
American Field will be open to the public from 10am until 6pm, September 28 & September 29, 2013. We are expecting to draw 3,000+ visitors this year. Vendors will be arriving the morning of September 28 to prepare their booths within the covered brick structure (currently used for parking) near the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Randolph St.
I enjoyed walking around this trade show and seeing all the quality US made products. I think it is important for people buy American made products. The sponsors of this pop-up are: LL Bean and LL Bean Signature, Ball & Buck, Jamestown, Randolph, Rancourt & Co, and American Made Matters (read more about buying American in this link).
After passing by the giant duck boot, I entered into the LL Bean area.
There were plenty of LL Bean boots.
You could buy custom made watches by changing up the faces and bands. http://thronewatches.com/

I met three stylish shoppers:
Unfortunately, I lost my notes document on my phone so my information is incomplete on this trio! I’m so sorry. (If one of you reads this and would like me to fix the post, send me an email)
Matthew, Mandi, and Adam. The outfit details are in my notes but I really liked their looks.
You buy everything you need for camping (or other outdoor activities), including duck boots, plaid shirts, and axes.
Ball and Buck had a large area including a hair cutting station on a truck! http://ballandbuck.com/\
I bought a fabulous coated canvas tote bag from http://almanacindustries.com/
