First Friday at the Indiana Landmarks Center

I will be setting up my handmade rustic willow furniture at the Indiana Landmarks Center at 1201 Central, which will be open from 6-9 pm Friday December 6 as a part of Indianapolis downtown Artists and Dealer Association
My buddy John Bundy will also be there with his exquisite duck decoys as well as twenty or so other Indiana Artisans. It will interesting to see if shoppers come to this venue and I am unsure what to expect. It is always flattering to be a part of an Indiana Artisan event and I really like exhibiting my handmade rustic willow furniture in a historic building. This one is a Nineteenth Century church that has been restored to its former glory.

There are thirty some galleries that you can visit during this Friday evening. Most will feature snacks and drinks. Most of the shops along nearby Massacusetts Avenue will also participate. You can go to the IDADA website at idada.org for a downloadable map and info about specific galleries. this is a chance to visit galleries that are normally closed during the evening.

Our display will only be there for this one event and only for three hours.

The next day, Saturday December 7 will bring Lapel's inaugural Downtown Walk from 10-7. Santa will be there and carolers will roam Main Street, I will be open as will Like Mother, Like Daughter, the lovely cabin across the street from me. They feature vintage and farmhouse antiques. Salvage Sisters, and their used consignment furniture and decorative items are a few blocks down the street will be open as well as Sew Many Blessings Quilt shop. It has been an encouraging year for Main Street with these business joining my shop.

I have been working on an order of leather barstools and welcomed a number of visitors to my shop for Small Business Saturday.
