spring is here!
the flowers are blooming, the weather is mostly cooperating and all the creatives that have been hibernating since the december market are ready to make their way to the first first friday indie market of 2011!
some things stay constant (like or fab location at the corner of s. elm & mlk) and other things are always changing...mainly the amazing talent that the indie market provides each month...so each time you wander through our outdoor mecca of handmade goodness you can discover new and amazing craft artisans.
the indie market brings together the very best of the triad's burgeoning artisan community, it is a collective of handcrafted and vintage shops and gives buyers a unique opportunity to chat with the creator, hear the story and then carry on that narrative with their own happy ending.
now lets meet some of the awesome talent that will be there on 4/1/11:
gremlina a treasure trove of vintage goodness can be found in this magical tent, so if you are looking for the kitsch factor or classic goodness of time gone by, stop in and say hey!
