WHY YOU SHOULD BE IN OUR SHOP>>> I had this discussion with one of my vendors today: If you consider the cost of doing art fairs- $25 entry fee and no guarantee you will get in.....$50 for one day, heat, cold, rain, wind, and having to sit all day in your tent waiting for shoppers, plus the cost of credit card machines- YOU CAN'T BEAT THIS DEAL!!!!

WHY EVERYONE SHOULD SHOP IN OUR SHOP: We offer high quality handmade items and art by local INDIANA artisans!!!! Support LIVING ARTISTS!!
