We had a fantastic time at Market Day in Des Moines. http://www.marketdayiowa.com/
Market Day is where you can find fabulous handmade items by local artists. Anything from jewelry, hand sewn IPOD covers, handmade skirts to iconic photography can be found at this once a month event.
I bought a very cute skirt for my daughter made out of different colored sweaters. Very reasonable find at Market Day for such a cute item! http://www.handmadepretties.com/
