Shoppers can expect to find the crème de la crème of indie goods: handbags, ceramics, stationary, silk-screened clothing, plush toys, body products and more!

 

Many new vendors have been added to the spring line up, so there will be plenty of new designers to check out.

 

Don’t miss the amazing brother and sister duo of Frankenstrap and Billy Would Designs, featuring handmade accessories using leather and reclaimed and recycled wood.

 

Stitchella will also be at the show selling her encaustic photographs, for which she takes original fine art photographs, mounts them on wood blocks and encases them in beeswax.
