(660 N. Chase St.) As one of the largest artist markets in the Southeast region, Indie South’s annual Springtacular features approximately 75 vendors offering all sorts of handmade ceramics, jewelry, home decor, candles, artisanal eats, natural bath and body products, textiles, photography, sculpture and other forms of original arts and crafts. In addition to a healthy selection of vintage clothing and collectibles—like Bohemian Seed’s old-fashioned wagon of treasures—several local businesses such as Franny’s Farmacy, Figment Fermentation and 3 Ravens Tattoo will host tables as well. Keep an eye out for candles by Sisters of the Moon, homegrown herbal bundles from Appalachian Sacred Smoke, resin jewelry by Cameoko, taxidermy pieces by Undead Nature, ceramics by The Wildflower Wheel, Bohemian Spirit Glass and Bloomerang Fluid Art. In addition to artist booths, the Springtacular will have music by DJ Kurt Wood on Saturday, DJ Mahogany on Sunday and DJ Pip on both afternoons, as well as food trucks from Speakcheesy, Hendershot’s Coffee, Nedza’s (Sunday only) and Freezecream. The Springtacular will be held Saturday, May 1 from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. and Sunday, May 2 from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. Check out theindiesouth.com for a full vendor list.
