Today Trouvés had a showcase at Market Day where you can find juried homemade goods, crafts, and art. (If you missed out, you can find our pieces here.) I was admiring some pottery in the booth next to ours that I didn’t want to pay full price for at the moment, and it was then that I had an epiphany: barter! I marched myself over there and took a good look at the expertly-merchandised goods, getting to know the creator. I asked if she did trades and she emphatically said yes!
She says she hates shopping, so it’s a good thing I’m custom-designing her a dress of her choice. A designer of her own: every girl’s dream!
