ICYMI June 1
It’s ICYMI June 1, and being June, that means Father’s Day is just around the corner (June 17th to be exact)! And our store is packed with cards for Dad. Vendors like Paper Michelle and Cracked Designs bring you punny and poppy greetings, while Lacelit and Igloo Letterpress provide playfully poignant notes.
Stop in to get the perfect one before they’re gone!
Dads to be?
Maybe there are some Dads to be in your life! Get them a hip onesie to go along with their hip Father’s Day card! There’s nothing more exciting than knowing you’ll be celebrating the little one that’ll make you a parent soon!
Indiana Wall Hangings
Is Dad a sports fan? Is Dad a wine or beer drinker? Well, New Art Studios has created the perfect gift for him. Hand painted designs on real wood (in the shape of Indiana, of course) would go great in Dad’s den, study, or bar!
Fiber and Gloss
Fiber and Gloss is back with a bang! And more things!
From inspiring buttons and magnets to new, adorable punny cards, Fiber and Gloss appeals to the optimist inside us all.
No Boys Allowed
No, these gifts aren’t for Dad. But they are things we’ve been seriously crushing on in store.
New “Quiet Girls” sticker from Band of Weirdos and snarky magnets from Beckamade are everything the usually not-so-silent-badass inside us wants!
First Friday: Vanessa Monfreda, Friday June 1st, 6pm-8pm in store.
For the months of May and June, we’ll be celebrating the new work of local artist Vanessa Monfreda. This collage series is inspired by Vanessa’s recent trip to Ecuador.
Born in Chile and spending part of her adolescence in Germany and Ecuador, Vanessa immigrated to the States with her family in the 90’s. Her diverse, multicultural background is ever present in her work and her use of up-cycled material adds another dimension to the already layered designs.
