Grand Opening of Somerville Crafts Store to Benefit Barakat

It may not be too early to start shopping for the holiday season!

Methok Gift Shop

Methok, a new gift shop in Union Square, Somerville hosted its opening night as a charity sale event for Barakat. A portion of the purchases made by customers was donated to Barakat for use in its educational programs in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Methok, Tibetan for ‘flower’, carries a range of products from South Asia, East and North Africa including jewelry, sculptures, carpets and pottery. The shop is run by Tsering Lha, a Tibetan woman who has been receiving encouragement from the local Somerville population to open an arts and crafts shop in Union Square.

Thanks to all who came!
