This year at the American Craft Council show in Baltimore, we couldn't help but wonder what was in all those colorful shopping bags we saw folks toting around the show floor. So, my colleague Timi and I asked people to let us take a peek at their purchases and tell us what craft they simply couldn't go home without. Take a look at all these amazing pieces - from silk scarves to shadowboxes - that found new homes.

Want to find your own treasures? Join us at RiverCentre in St. Paul this weekend for our next ACC show, April 20-22, to shop our show of the country's top craft artists.
