As I was perusing through photos taken at The Webster Street Market, I came across a picture of our daughter that inspired me to write this post. First, here is the picture…..
Other than the sandals she is wearing, everything else is made in Dayton, Ohio. She is sporting a dress created by Flip Side Pillowcase, a business venture started by a Dayton mother of four and her mother-in-law. The flower headband and the bundle of stuffed toys are hand knitted by Bonnie Ann Turayev, owner of Violet’s Silver Lining. It is so refreshing to have the choice to buy products made in the United States. Our daughter was able to purchase these lovely animal friends after selling her wares at her booth, Elizabeth’z Delightz. So, not only is she learning about the “American Dream” of entrepreneurship but she has the opportunity to buy locally made products.
At The Webster Street Market we highly encourage and support local artisans to share their creations with the public. Here’s a look at the other Ohio made items you can find at The Market.
