This Week at the Shop: June 12th

Father’s Day is coming up and I don’t think we’ve ever had such a unique and wide selection of gifts for dad. Whether dad loves food, beer, alcohol, books, dressing classy, or gardening, we’ve got just the thing! Not to mention the cards. To all you dads out there who’ve worked hard to care for us, you deserve to be treated.


My choices this year. Iron Leaf Press on the left and Arsenal Handicraft on the right.

And so many more!

This flour sack tea towel is so classey with illustrations of different knots. And a Dad’s Den scented candle? Um, yeah.

And, of course, beer. This little Hook & Loop pennant is the perfect way to give beer a little cheer, and this bottle opener by The Machine Shoppe is tough and useful, just like dad.

Around the Shop

Still can’t get over the detail and beauty of these wings from Green Beetle Shop.

This adorable wire wall hanging by Gauge NYC would be the perfect little touch to any room. Do you know someone who could use a gentle soothing smile in the mail? This card by Haven Paperie is just the thing.

Coming Up

INDIEana Handicraft Exchange, Saturday, June 17th, 12-8pm at the Harrison Center for the Arts: The INDIEana Handicraft Exchange is a contemporary craft fair that consciously celebrates modern handmade goods, the relationship between creator and consumer, and local, alternative economies. The IHE has become a notable stop on the Midwest indie craft fair circuit, which includes events such as the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago, IL, Crafty Supermarket in Cincinnati, OH, Craftin’ Outlaws in Columbus, OH, Art vs. Craft (now defunct) in Milwaukee, WI and the Detroit Urban Craft Fair in Detroit, MI, among many others. The IHE began in 2007 as a way to highlight local crafters and artisans as well as to expose Indianapolis to some of the best vendors on the national indie craft fair map.

See ya next week, friends!
