Indie Craft Experience Summer '13

Posted on June 20, 2013 by Courtney Weil | 0 comments

After being a customer at the Indie Craft Experience (ICE) for years and admiring all the gorgeous indie (and of course, clever) crafts, I was so excited to be a vendor at this Summer's show. I remember wandering through Centennial Park in Atlanta back when ICE began over 5 years ago, and dreaming of having a strong enough brand to be able to show at such a widely-attended event. Now this bi-annual show takes place in Ambient Plus Studio, a bit off the beaten path in Atlanta, but so worth it. Ambient Studio is Atlanta's only daylight photography studio, and it's window-covered brick walls made the perfect venue for an indie craft show.

Needless to say, having my 6ft table at ICE in June was a dream come true! I adored every second of that weekend, and am so thankful to have met so many amazing vendors and customers from all over the country. I can't wait to be back, both as a customer and vendor.

Not only did I sell lots of goodies, but brought home many treasures as well. Some of my favorites were these precious tiny gold-framed prints from Brenna Giessen. They look perfect on my C&L storage wall!

Many of the other goodies I brought home after a wonderful weekend -- the incredibly well-designed KooRoo KooRoo toys, Yo Soy Candles (Cucumber Wasabi is my favorite scent!), Clue Town Books scavenger hunt of Piedmont Park, Burrowing Home print and temporary tattoos, and Native Bear tea towel.

Another lovely surprise was being featured on the Atlanta fashion blog, You've Been Noted, as one of their favorite vendors from ICE! P.S. - you know it's a good craft show, when your husband stays for the entire show, for two full days!
