Very pleased to have this vendor return to sell at our Spring show. The lovely Ms. Ashley from Fannie’s Closet had a pretty busy booth last time and it was no wonder with all of the cool altered clothing and screen-printed items she had. If you are looking for something uniquely handmade you must check out Ashley’s booth on April 30. She also has bricks & mortar shop in the East Village in Davenport! There are so many great items to chose from you will love everything!

Betty Round is by far one of the most talented ladies I have ever met and she excels in making almost everything & anything. For example she has been busy creating all sorts of fun stuff for our Spring Show… pillows, hats, jewelry, felted goods, upcycled t-shirts and more! To get a sneak peek of some of the items she will have for sale on April 30th read through the Featured Artist interview we just did with her at the end of last month. Cool crafts aside, she is really nice and you will most likely want to be friends with her as soon as you meet! ~ rose
