    The Makers Market

    You'll be able to find a unique gift for Mom at The Makers Market Downtown; they offer an incredible selection of items made by local artists and craftsmen. I love shopping at The Makers Market because they have such a wide variety--everything from Alabama apparel to framed photographs, elegant silver jewelry to whimsical art made from upcycled license plates.
