ICYMI December 1
It’s ICYMI for the first week of December! And if knowing there’s only 25 days until Christmas has you reaching for something something to drink, you’re not alone! But have no fear, we’ve got the holiday koozies to keep your beer cold and the gifts to make everyone happy this year.
Snacks (And Drinks) Make Everyone Happy
If you’ve been missing Just Pop In!, it’s time to rejoice because it’s back for the holidays! Find mini bags, large bags, and a few tubes of popcorn in savory to sweet flavors! And I don’t know about you beer pairs pretty well with popcorn in my opinion. The Beer Brewing Kits from Craft-A-Brew are here again. Find Oak Aged IPA, Hefeweizen, Irish Stout Craft Beer Kit, The O.G., American Pale Ale, and Brown Ale all in store.
Have a cocktail connoisseur in the family? New recipe cards from Lacelit paired with Blood Mary Maker from Hoosier Mama make a great Christmas party gift! And who doesn’t like cheese? Get a gift for the whole family or for your savvy-in-the-kitchen-friend from The Urban Cheesecraft!
New Vendor: Storm Print City
Designer Russell Muits of Storm Print City seeks out historic utility covers throughout the U.S. and captures them in relief prints on canvas. The actual cover on the street is painted with block ink and then transferred to canvas! Come see the coasters and prints we have from them in store!
Her’s & His
If you’re like me, stockings are the very last thing you think about for Christmas. Lucky you, however, as I’ve compiled some ideas for the lady or lad you’re buying for this holiday. From jewelry to perfume and cologne to ties, ask our staff to help you find any of the items above the next time you’re in!
All The Holiday
Skipping the family photo holiday card this year? Check out our selection of new card sets from Lacelit and An Open Sketchbook. Want to wow your guests at your holiday party? Why not display your charcuterie on an Infinite Abyss reclaimed barn wood board. And then you can make a game out of the pairing your wine and cheese with the Tasting Notes notebooks from Yonder Bound! Party-On!
