1. What is your go-to hostess gift? A candle from Shindig, flowers from the farmers market or one of our great flower shops in Fayetteville—I love both Flora and Pigmint—or a fun little gift box from Freckled Hen Farmhouse!
2. Name a local maker who’s under the radar and deserves more recognition. This is hard—I have several! Letterpress-printed I Am Here Cards and Perennial Shop handmade clay necklaces are both great!
3. Where is your favorite local spot to gather inspiration? Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, The Buffalo River area and the downtown Fayetteville Square on a farmers market morning.
4. What are three handmade items on your own wishlist? I would love a piece from local painter Allison Hobbs. I have one leather tote from American Native Goods and would love to get another in a different color.
5. Which craft fair do you most look forward to? I attended the first Little Craft Show in 2011 and still look forward to it every year. The Annual Art Fair at Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis was a family tradition growing up— it’s held every Mother’s Day weekend and is fabulous.
6. Name your can’t-live-without locally made eats or drinks. Ozark Beer Co. APA and Moniker Ferments Kombucha.
7. What locally made things do you use in your own office? One of my all time favorite products is the leather fillion refillable notebook from Fayetteville maker Little Mountain Bindery—I have four of them! I also love the handmade wood fountain and ballpoint pens from local maker Beringer Wood Co.
8. What is your favorite local hangout? Clubhaus Fitness in the morning, Arsaga’s Depot and Arsaga’s Church Street during the day, and, on the rare occasion that I go out, Maxine’s Taproom.
9. What’s your favorite local art venue or event? My favorite local event is the Fayetteville Roots Festival, held in late August. It was even better this year as the global creative house Justkids curated the Green Candy art action the week leading up to the festival, and the community was able to watch and interact with public art happening around downtown.
