Boston & Bale- Boston’s Best Local’s Delivered Right to Your Door

Looking around today, you notice a few trends happening, more people are opting for local, fresh food while having everything delivered from clothing you can rent and return to samples of the top makeup companies. Wouldn’t it be great if we could have both, local goods delivered right to our house? Well, now we can with Boston’s newest delivery service- Boson & Bale.

Created by Boston locals Michelle and Elise, Boston & Bale was thought up after stumbling up a hidden farmers market in Cambridge. As many small and local businesses know, getting recognized in a world of over advertising, big box stores with lower pricing, can be pretty tough, if not almost impossible. Boston & Bale carefully picks local designers and companies to be included in their delivery service, and with each month containing new products, there’s no telling what local maker you’ll discover next. Best of all, if your more interested in a certain product or perhaps aren’t a fan of chocolate (what?!), Boston & Bale packages boxes tailored to every subscriber, so you’ll be sure to love (and use) every product you receive.

If I still haven’t convinced you to try Boston & Bale, the company is also donating 10% of their monthly sales to a local charity or organization. Local products sent to you by a local company who gives back to the local community, all this adds up to you being one sustainable, local lover. And let’s be honest, what’s better than shopping and being local? If you ask me, nothing! Why else would I write this blog?!

  1. There's something immediately dignified about this venue - rent a space for an event here as it is beautifully designed, tasteful, and understated. Went to this comfy place recently, just the right temperature, good food and great experience.
