Serpent Mounds

We're on our way across the country to vend at the Renegade Craft Shows in San Francisco & Los Angeles, and we want to make sure to stop at interesting places along the way. That's most of the fun, right?

Today, we drove a little out of the way to visit the Serpent Mounds in Ohio. It was an incredible sight, and the photos do not do it justice. The visitor center staff were knowledgable, helpful, kind and genuinely seemed to love their job. That always makes an experience better. We walked around the entire serpent and even did some walking on a great trail that wound around below along a river. It was a very surreal experience. Even though it was out of our way, it was definitely worth the stop.

After that, we stopped in Indianapolis at Homespun: Modern Handmade to visit one of the shops that carries our toys. We met Amanda and Aubrey, and marveled at the amazing artists that we get to share space with. The store is very well designed, and I could see myself shopping there repeatedly. No wonder the locals love it!

Sounds like you two are having a great summer trip so far! Love the buckeyes on that Ohio historical marker.
