In 2022, I took the magazine on an unofficial tour! First to Boston for the Boston Art Book Fair and then Brooklyn for Zine Fair NYC. In Boston, I stayed in New Bedford for three nights.
New Bedford is a small town before the Cape about an hour outside of Boston. I had a lot of fun staying with my friends that I had met in the year prior. We had done a lot of work together as part of an arts nonprofit that they were an executive director of. It hit me hard when they had to move away from Vermont. I get pretty emotional when people have to leave but I was excited to see them.
New Bedford seems sleepy on the outside but they have some really cool places like little Portugal which we had amazing food at and Kilburn Mill where there are boutiques and indie clothing shops.
