Indie Arts Market: A Special Preview

Indie Arts Market is debuting tomorrow! Like most craft fairs, the Indie Arts Market is your chance to see (and buy up) all the fab goods that keep local artists and crafters busy past their 9 to 5's. The only hitch is that this market is running kamikaze-style, with only four quick hours to shop your indie hearts out. Should you choose to support this crafty mission, here are the details:

Saturday, May 31st, 11am - 3pm
Schubas Tavern, 3159 N. Southport, Chicago, IL

And now for a sneak peek:

NEW DESIGN!: Bow Tee, by Alison Rose
Longtime Midwestern favorite, Alison Rose, is coming on strong with a new one-of-a-kind T-shirt design. They'll set up shop with a huge selection of the Bow Shirts (and Bow Tote Bags!), their classic Cut-Out tees, screened totes, and newly-conceived Art Cards.

Felted Bowls by Jelly Knits
Jelly Knits is on top of her game with her felted wool bowls. Just in time for summer, she's packing the table with brilliant colors and even a few fun-loving stripes. Other not-just-for-winter knits include eco-happy grocery totes and petal-shaped washcloths.

Lusty Switchplate Cover by Love Lights
I'm also getting in the game with my recycled Love Lights. Just a note of warning, I'm feeling this process/product going in a new direction so this may be one of the last times you can get your hands on these sexy beasts. But no pressure...just come out and have a fun time.

To check out some of the other vendors on the scene, visit the Indie Arts Market website. If you drop by, come say HI! I'll be wearing a purple Alison Rose Cut-Out tee that is such a perfect match for me that it basically leapt straight from the box onto my body. You'll see what I'm talking about when you find yours.
