Big Love is Back!  
Visit our booth along with dozens of other local favorites on Sunday, September 15th!
 The fun runs from 1-8pm, on the Roger McGuire Green and Pack Place. 
Jon Arge is our featured artist this year, so THINK HOLIDAY and grab up some of his hilarious cards, notebooks, gift boxes and found imagery art pieces! 
Paper Majik...
Yes, we'd say that a card growing into a plant is pretty magical... that's why we're loving the new seeded recycled paper cards from Paper Majik.  Peel off the shape on the cover to reveal plantable seeds!   
Skrapmonkey's Latest 
You've seen his welded scrap metal planters and candle holders, now try these on for size: necklaces and earrings!  
If you see a piece you like, swipe it up now because after having them in the shop for a few weeks we've learned that they don't hang around here for very long!   
Truly Vintage... People! 
Help these guys find their forever home..artist Karen Mauro of Truly Vintage never fails to show us her sense of humor and creativity!

Quiz: What materials are used in the new bags at Foundry?
A. Book covers
B. Bike inner tube 
C. Reclaimed hand-woven skirts from Guatemala
D. All three
       If you said "D. All three" you are correct!  
Don't stay home reading a book, take these darling Book Bags by Meridith Michell out on the town with you!  Hard cover books lined with reclaimed fabric definitely have something to say.  
 The Ravenna is back, along with the new re-designed Mercer bag from Alchemy Goods.   
This summer we met Lizzy, of Be Harmony who splits her time between Guatemala and Asheville, and works with Mayan families making these re-useable shopping bags.  Every bag has a handy attached sack for stuffing the bag into when not in use, and the textile was once a Mayan women's skirt!   
New Artists: 
Deck Specks
At Foundry we LOVE function, and that's what you get with these sunglasses handmade from recycled skateboard decks.  Their custom display shows the wear and tear of the well-loved boards, and the sunglasses show the skill of their craft. Deck Specks come from some amazing skateboarding woodworkers in Atlanta, GA.   
First Thursday Craft Night:
October 3rd, 6-8pm
What's the best thing about craft night at Foundry?   The people who come of course!  
So once again, next month is
