Shopping: Tiny Canary

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

After only three years, the mid-November appearance of Tiny Canary Indie Design Market already feels like the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season in Columbus. This year's edition features over 50 vendors of handmade items for giving to yourself and others. There are unique holiday cards from Oddball Press and Poshta Design, roughly decorative functional ceramics from Cynthia Vardhan, bright hand-blown glass sets from This Chair's on Fire and fantastical plush creatures from Cutesy but not Cutesy. For adorning walls, Clinton Reno brings his selection of concert posters and Yumi Yumi proprietor Aline Yamada offers whimsically refined nature prints (pictured). For adorning bodies, check out the unique glass beadwork of Michigan's Kristin Perkins and warm, super-nubby bubble scarves from Torn Angel.
