A few things going in Atlanta that are fashion/food related. If you get a chance to get out and check them out, come back and let me know!

Thread Count @ East Lake Community Learning Garden

56 2nd Ave (East Atlanta), 3:00 PM Atlanta’s indie craft   and DIY fashion scenes have been popping up all over the place. Beyond   featuring handcrafted jewelry, furnishings, and apparel by local designers,   the second Thread Count urban vendor’s market will also raise awareness for   sustainable agriculture by setting up shop at the East Lake Community   Learning Garden from 3-9 p.m. on Sat., July 20. It’s a way to support   hyperlocal culture and brands — including hosts BOSCO, Arbitrary Living, and   Ashley Rhoden Designs — while picking up some unique finds. Food vendors,   music, and drinks will be on deck.
