Right smack downtown lies this gem of a shopping destination: it’s antiques, boutique, and specialty items in one.
Martinsville, Indiana ShoppingAs part of a group, we got to listen to an Indiana artisan talk gourds. Ann Lankford began dabbling in paint in 1985. As a self-taught artist, she grew from there and has been gourd-obsessed ever since!
She’s a master gardener, has sold her pieces to museums, and has even had them appear on QVC. It is truly an amazing process. I got to see the inside of a gourd. Who knew there were all those seeds? After it’s all cleaned out, Lankford turns the gourds into birdhouses, baskets, or decorative touches and hand-paints them. Her finished pieces are so beautiful.
In fact, there are even workshops held in the back of Berries & Ivy Country Store in the section referred to as Homestead Primitives. There’s room for rug hooking and painting. What’s more, Lankford, along with friend Debbie Myers, purchased and now owns this adorable, spacious shop since June of 2014!
