Fresh off its lengthy winter hibernation, Indie Mart is finally back! I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday: leisurely strolling along a closed-off city block while sipping a bloody mary (on par with Zeitgeist’s) and scoping the latest offerings from local fashion designers. The fact that the weather is supposed to be hovering around the 80s seals the deal.
Indie Mart has evolved since its humble beginnings into an all-day block party extravaganza, and this Sunday’s 3 year anniversary promises to be the biggest yet. Over 100 designers will be strutting their stuff, and it’s not just clothes–you can find art, crafts (I scored an awesome wallet a year or two ago that I still use today), baked treats for the foodies, puppies for adoption, and even terrarium construction! PBR is helping to sponsor the event, so be on the lookout for all sorts of rapaciously evil corporate giveaways as well.
Dress stylishly enough and you could even wind up on fashioni.st! Or, dress metal enough and receive patches and goodies from the roving metal girls on hand from Heavy Metal Aerobics. Or, just hang out and watch some of the cool bands that are performing like Music for Animals and Jonesin’.
The fun happens this Sunday from 12-6pm at Thee Parkside and thee adjacent Wisconsin (between 16th and 17th St). See you there!
