*innad* – HMC4 Vendor Spotlight!

If you thought the awesomeness of our vendor spotlight HMC4 series would soon fade – you were wrong. With only 10 more days until Handmade City 4 we are still posting amazing designers like today’s feature *innad*! Just look at the small selection above, super cool wallets and accessories made in Wisconsin! Trust us, we have seen these in person and they are just as rad as they look in those thumbnails. Definitely swing by the *innad* booth and grab some goodies for yourself and your pals. Any pattern/fabric can be made into bi-fold, checkbook, or passport sizes so if you’d like something in a different style, let Danni know!
