March TLC Vintage Newsletter

March Local Artisan Spotlight: Vintage Market Jewelry!

There are many outstanding artisans right here in our local community. They are a great way for you to buy local and support neighboring industry! Many of them are only heard of by word-of-mouth or if you happen by a local show where they exhibit. So what better way to introduce our customers to them than to do monthly displays featuring an artist and the first one is AWESOME!

Vintage Market Jewelry  – Come in this month and see the beautiful vintage-style jewelry done right here in Urbandale by Susan Espinosa. These items can be purchased in store at very reasonable prices and proceeds go to Sue. We will have cards so you can contact Sue if you have a custom order. Check out my blog to see photos!
