Rural Handicrafts trunk show comes to Tampa



I'm a big fan of nature-inspired accessories -- wooden bangles, cork shoes, feather earrings. Even my car floor mats are bamboo. So this upcoming event really caught my attention.

Not only are the rustic accessories super cute (check out the bamboo bag on the left), but they're all made by artists in tribal India. The Tampa-based company says it provides the artists with skills and tools so they're able to make a living.

Parking for the event is free, and organizers promise door prizes and raffles. See you there!
