Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar

Dowdy Studio and Pamela Michelle shared a booth at the 2009 Deluxe Show

This past weekend, Dowdy Studio, Cut Out and Collect and myself made an adventurous trek through the hail, wind, tornado warnings and rain up to Oklahoma City, the home of the Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar and the famous Girlie Show. We were stationed in the college town of Norman, Oklahoma where we found storm shelter for the night in a very cool old 1920s(ish) house right near the OU campus. After a drink and nice long sleep, we prepared ourselves for the drive up to Oklahoma City to dance in the awesomeness of the Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar.

I always enjoy visiting other cities. Not only is it like a mini-vacation, but a great chance to meet some new amazing people. We went so far and actually met a funky gal who lives right around the corner from us. Jane Joss is a home decor must-have, and actually resides a stone's throw away in Arlington.
