You can’t  miss The Purple Fig in Nashville, Indiana–the outside fairly screams “creative artist at work!”

Located in Antique Alley, this is one section of this Indiana town you won’t want to miss.

Nashville, Indiana: The Purple Fig

One look at the inside and you’ll be in artsy heaven! From floor to ceiling there is so much to look at, admire, and covet!

Artist and owner Aimee Summitt has a way with materials. Fibers, beads–even dehydrated fruit and Crinoid fossils make their way into lovely items.

Yes, the owner of The Purple Plum has found a way to use those Crinoid fossils, you may know them as Indian beads, to make bracelets, earrings, and even necklaces. All decked out in lovely shades, they are fabulous!

It’s such a neat space! Mixed-media wall hangings and paintings bathe the warm wood walls in vibrant colors.

Our boys were really taken with her studio. Kid #2 wanted to rearrange her clever magnets while Kid #1 was intrigued by the Crinoid Fossils on display as wearable art! They really liked this small town shop.

Although many of the items up for sale are created by Aimee, she does have a few selections from other local artists. All this variety will make you proud to be a Hoosier!
