Every time I bike down Bahia Vista, going west I look in on Ed Bender's Mechanic Shop. Well, it used to be his shop until he passed away a couple of years ago. Today I was in for a pleasant surprise when I saw these crafted items through the fence. When I got to the open gate Mrs Bender motioned me in. I looked around and the place is transformed.
True American Artisans have set up shop. Here are a few of the photos I took, but check out their Facebook Page by going to True American Artisans. They have many more beautiful pictures.
