Now here is a lost (on me) art form. Our featured market vendors are way beyond ill fitting Grandma socks. At our Spring Market on 4/13/14, they will bring knit pieces for stylishly decorating your home and wardrobe. Damn, I wish I could knit!
When I think of Spring, I think of sparrows chirping, woodpeckers uh… pecking and mockingbirds kicking people’s asses in Transmitter Park! Our Spring Market on 4/13/14 – will not leave out our feathered friends who have migrated home after privileged tropical vacations – little bastards! These creations from our featured vendors are cute enough to undo any lingering cold weather bitterness.
