I made it out to Indianapolis this weekend for the third annual INDIEana Handicraft Exchange, and was it ever worth it! I’d been to the first one, which was much smaller and in a not-so-great venue, and I was so happy to see how it’s blossomed. There were more than 70 vendors in this multi-level art center. I don’t know how I managed to not break the bank. Some of my fave sights:
Studio AMF makes these amazing rings out of fine woods—and, yes, that is a real shell embedded in the ring.
Royal Tenenbaums finger puppets by Abbey Christine!
And I scored this gorgeous red totebag from Lindsey Lord—and then I won that cute clutch by her in the raffle! Love!
