    A sign inside HomeGrown cautions shoppers to "Just say no to mass-produced art," not that there's any mass-produced art to speak of at the Decatur craft market and artists' collective. But just in case, you're being watched ... by Mr. T (there's a shrine to him in the corner). And by at least one of the indie artists who sells their work there. Staffed by artists, the co-op-style boutique sells wall art, pottery, jewelry, photography, and housewares to buy as gifts for others or as gifts to yourself. There are always new artists setting up displays and always something new to see. And if there's an artist you particularly love, you can check out the schedule on HomeGrown's website and drop in to say "Hi" when they're working. Mr. T pities the fool who doesn't say "No" to mass-produced art. less...

    On the first Thursday of each month from 7-10 p.m., local designers and artisans converge at Grant Park’s Young Blood Gallery for Kraftwork, a night dedicated to selling the products of local crafters. Indie kids, neighborhood enthusiasts and friends of the artists sip cheap wine and PBRs as they peruse the handmade wares and chat with the creative entrepreneurs. Screen-printed tees, fingerless gloves, fabric pins, deconstructed skirts and crochet hats are just a sample of what is available each month. Look for great prices and don’t be afraid to bargain (and even barter), especially toward the end of the evening when vendors are more likely to give you a deal. less...
