Welcome to this quaint little blog, regarding our quaint little craft fair, aptly titled "Indie Davis."

In spring 2009, Nina Gatewood of Haute Again and nina and tom set out to expand her support of local crafts. Already carrying many low-production, handmade goods, but not having the space to display as many local talents as they'd like, Indie Davis was born. It's an independent, unique crafts fair that fits perfectly into the heart of downtown Davis, CA.

The first event took place May 9, 2009 and was well-received. Six local vendors were showcased at the front of the store.

Indie Davis continues to grow. Not only are there new vendors with new products, but we continue to expand and coordinate with other events in town in order to bring an original experience that people will want to experience again and again.

Keep checking this blog for updates on the date/time of new Indie Davis events, as well as vendor spotlights and information on the local crafts scene.

See you soon!
