ICE Show this weekend- Sat. Nov 15

I highly recommend checking out the Indie Craft Experience (ICE) show this weekend.

It is a collection of crafters from around the southeast who come together to sell their homemade items. Here is a good description from Public Broadcasting Atlanta (I give credit where credit it due!).

You won’t find any macramé wall hangings at the Indie Craft Experience. Well, maybe you will, but chances are the person who made them find them as amusing as you do.

The Indie Craft Experience isn’t your grandmother’s kind of craft fair. The crafts at ICE might have a hipper edge or an ironic playfulness that one doesn’t usually associate with traditional crafts. They might incorporate vintage fabrics, goofy graphics, or re-purposed material into designs that feature skulls, superheroes, or robots; it’s punk rock played with needle and thread.

It’s not just the crafts on sale that set ICE apart.Co-founders Christy Petterson, Shannon Mulkey and Susan Voelker envisioned the Indie Craft Experience as more than just a craft market. It offers crafting workshops, vegan baked goods, and a clothing swap benefiting local charities. And what other craft fair has live bands?

If you go, make sure you stop by Concrete Lace's booth (#35)- that is our friend Katie K.! We love her hand- letterpressed postcards!

It's a fun shopping experience, and, the first 300 shoppers will get a swag bag with items from each vendor!

Love the blog. Glad you forced Grabmol out. She was dragging the whole operation down.
