Hope this tour facilitates in-person introductions. To ensure I'm easily found, will be wearing this sweet T-shirt from my good friends at Vintage Roadside. They make T's from authentic vintage advertising signs. That's just cool.
Find me. Say hello. We'll chat like old friends. Can't wait.
This post will hold until above events have past. This will serve as a beacon to those in search of Mid-Century Modern fellowship in Indiana. Tell your friends.
