Get dear ol’ dad the perfect gift this year by shopping from Handmade Arcade’s vendors past and present!
Make dad stand out in the crowd with a, bespoke bowtie from Knotzland, beautifully crafted from sustainable textiles. He’ll be unlikely to misplace his phone once he has a unique case from Kerfcase, who create sleek and sustainable designs from locally salvaged trees. And Skapa Turnings offers wooden pens and letter openers to spruce up Dad’s desk.
If your dad likes to spend most of his time in the great outdoors, why not help him be the coolest dad on the trails? The Woodsy Warrior Bundle from Apothecary Muse has just the thing to help dad soothe his skin. Daggerfish Gear has a wide variety of hand reels for fathers who fish, and they’re constructed from responsibly-sourced wood. Or treat dad to a new experience with a blacksmithing class from The Barefoot Forge.
Treat Dad to a piece of history – and a cool functional object — with a salvaged post office box bank from Wood-N-You Like It. Help adorn the walls of his beloved space with breathtaking photos from Abandoned Pittsburgh. Or present dad with a poster from his favorite movie, courtesy of Baxter and the Bear.
Whatever you choose, we know dad will love his one-of-a-kind gifts and be thrilled that you shopped handmade.
