I spent last Thursday in Bloomington to host a webinar with Traditional Arts Indiana. I had a few minutes to spare before the webinar started so my daughter, Hannah, and I stopped to chat with Sally Harless at Anatomy Vintage and Handmade.
Shop is located on what appears to be an alley a block south of Kirkwood Avenue near the I.U. campus. The most striking part of the shop is its size — it’s tiny! This unique little building began life as a residential garage. Sometime later some shed additions were added to the south side of the building as well as a two story storefront addition. It really is a unique and interesting space.
Though small and filled with merchandise, it’s not tight or cluttered. When shared the space with 2-3 shoppers as well as Sally and had no problem navigating. There are interesting things to look at (and to purchase) at every level iincluding a shelf of my flatties — full size 2-dimensional versions of my carvings.
I must confess that I didn’t look at much — the selection had a decidedly female appeal — but my youngest duaghter, Phoebe, would love to explore!
Don’t miss this tiny hidden gem while roaming the Kirkwood shops.
