Look around any political convention and you will likely see vendors selling tee-shirts, buttons and memorabilia.
But both the DNC this week and the RNC last week also attract artists and small businesses selling stuff to the party faithful.
If you walked through the Home Run Alley at Progressive Field during the RNC, you would have seen a lot of different items for sale. Many are handmade by local artisans like the shirts made by Marianna Keithly of Middletown. The garments were bedazzled on site with rhinestones.
