Carnahan Hall Winter Market An Exciting Extravaganza of Local Goods

Article by Melodie Yvonne

LAFAYETTE, IN (January 22, 2020) – Carnahan Hall‘s Seema Choudhary has struggled just as many venue owners have in recent times, but once again she has risen to the occasion like a glorious phoenix. The talented business woman has breathed life into a beautiful event thought up by Kati Davis to help as many local artists and businesses as she can, and it’s going on weekly. The fabulous Carnahan Hall Winter Market that’s being brought to Lafayette, Indiana with the help of Seema, Carnahan Hall, Market Square Shopping Center, and the Greater Lafayette Commerce will run every Tuesday through April 27 as well as a few special Saturdays before Valentine’s Day.

Carnahan Hall has definitely been one of the forerunners in implementing safety precautions to protect patrons during this difficult time. Seema herself helps with temp checks and makes sure that all customers know where they can find plenty of hand santizer along with anything else they may need to feel comfortable and have a safe event and shopping experience. Choudhary is not just there for the money. She exists to help the community and everyone that crosses her path, and it shows.

Carnahan Hall’s Winter Art Market has been built with love, and it’s truly a beautiful adventure from start to finish. The vendors include many local artists and businesses that create products with all of their heart making for a gorgeous display of available handmade goods, crafts, and gifts. Customers that venture into the back will find the added bonus of incredibly priced furniture, electronics, decor, kegerators, tvs, office supplies, and more as the venue does a winter cleaning to make room for new upcoming projects. Carnahan Hall along with the Indiana Independent Venue Alliance (IIVA) has also partnered with Horizon House to launch a program called “SOCK ON” to coincide with the Winter Market this season.

SOCK ON is a statewide clothing drive collecting factory sealed socks for adult and kids from various venues to benefit the homeless. Anyone can drop off a new pair of factory sealed socks at Carnahan Hall any Tuesday from 3PM-7PM during the 2020-2021 Winter Market or at this Saturday’s Winter Market (Jan 23). Patrons can also call the venue at (765)337-0056 to schedule another time to donate for those unable to attend the events. For more info on SOCK ON visit:

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodieโ€™s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, โ€œI started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that itโ€™s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.โ€
