Where the Locals Go

On a rare Saturday off, Grant and I perused the Hillcrest and Heights areas of Little Rock in search of a garage sale or two. We found zilch, zero. 

We wound our way to downtown, so we decided to check out the River Market, which has local vendors and farmers on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

We've been spoiled because in Chattanooga, there's a similar market every Sunday afternoon, and it is HUGE.  The River Market isn't as large as the Chattanooga Market, but we still found plenty of interesting local goods.

The first vendor to catch my eye was AR State of Mind.  They screenprint shirts, and they do it well with witty puns and state pride.  Their items can be found at Dillard's stores here in Little Rock, or you can order from them through their Facebook page or their website.  Don't call Arkansas home? They have shirts for all 50 states. We're just proud to share their home city.

We also stumbled upon Upscaled Pallets.  They're a husband-wife duo who create beautiful, handmade pieces from scrap pallets- kitchen islands, benches, tables, wineracks- you name it.  I think they're one of Little Rock's best-kept secrets! That's why I'll feature them in a future post.  In the meantime, check out some of their work on their Pinterest page and their Facebook page.  We were charmed by this American flag...



... at just $15, we had to bring it home.  I love the variation in the colors and the little stars.




And to think, this was made out of wood headed to the landfill...


Happy hunting!
