A new FAV hot spot, Ifound Gallery on Main

Well there I was trekking around Main Street last week to pick up wallpaper samples for upcoming Crafternoons and I happened upon this awesome space, Ifound Gallery. I can't believe I had never heard of it before or been. It's a killer spot for jewelry supplies, upcycling furniture and retro clothing.



Lots of swanky dresses, shoes, jackets, etc.



And one-of-a-kind furniture...



And kewl... Tons of jewelry supplies, beads, stones... WOW! I couldn't have spent hours perusing their wares.



Seriously! So much crafty goodness to be found.



You can find them online... Or just drop by at 4578 Main Street.



I'm definitely adding Ifound Gallery to my list of FAB places to scour for kewl finds.
