Without craft stores, no one would be able to find the materials needed to build a tricycle for a kitten or to glue sugar-cubes together in the shape of a dinosaur femur. Encounter aisles of creativity with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of crafts at Little Shop of Crafts. This Groupon is good at either of Little Shop of Crafts' two locations.
Its modest name notwithstanding, Little Shop (or Best Shop, to many) of Crafts has a huge selection of artistic and artisanal supplies and activities. Paint your own plaster ($13.95) or pottery ($19.95+) on-site (no studio fees), or create a cuddly stuffed animal ($29.95) with hypo-allergenic stuffing. Mosaic kits ($21.95+) let crafters coat tabletops and toaster ovens with bright glass patterns, and you can design your own T-shirt ($18.95) with the world's most obscure joke, which science has proven to be Mr. Belvedere's head superimposed on the Mona Lisa with a word balloon proclaiming, "Everybody say YATTA!" As you pleasantly ponder new shirt designs and unimagined craft coups, Little Shop will be happy to lubricate your imagination with complimentary wine on adult nights (available on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at both locations, and on Saturday nights at the Westside location from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Private party rooms are also available—mention Groupon when booking, and you'll receive 10% off your entire party.
