Buying Local!

September 14, 2009

Here at Baaad Anna’s we are huge fans of all the amazing local fiber artists! Such big fans that we actually have an entire display table dedicated to local artists! It’s amazing, despite the recent cuts to the arts, what people in this city are creating

Right now at Baaad Anna’s we have two local artists’ products selling.
