Success for Indie!!!

Well, at least it felt like a success, with a steady flow of traffic throughout the day! The vendors were happy, the shoppers were happy, coffee was flowing. You should have been there! The spot in the Red Eye really helped to get the word out!
So, thank you to all of you wonderful vendors that helped make this day possible! We hope to do another event in the spring....
