The Horror: Right Next To The Yard Gnomes
Indiana is home to a tiny town named Shipshewana. This predominately Amish burg is actually well known as home of the largest flea market in the Midwest. Older women speak of it in rapturous tones. There you can buy homemade preserves, hand sewn quilts and field fed cattle. You can barter a deal with a crew of Amish to build you a bed or even a house. But while at the flea market, you can also fill your yard with lawn gnomes, purchase painted rocks and stock up on hippie clothes made by old hippies. No doubt that somewhere in the acres of tie-dye skirts, peace symbol necklaces, and Gaia tee shirts, the buyers from Mod Cloth found this wolf dress and thought to themselves, "Let's rock it like it's 1993. Now where can I get some shoo-fly pie?"
