The Eclectic Owl feathers its nest with quirky gifts, unique accessories, and locally created art. Stow wisdom and refills of nighttime in a handmade owl tote ($24), whose vibrant, red swatches of color and button eyes add imagination to any outfit to which it migrates. Vivid threads ensnare double-circle earrings as they spangle earlobes in hot pink, teal, black, orange, or one of many other springy, whimsical hues ($18). Sending a handmade card?such as the belated birthday greeting adorned with an apologetically lanky turtle ($2.95)?can be a one-of-a-kind communiqu?, like faxing an image of your thumbprint. Local artists contribute their original talents to the eclectic smorgasbord, which includes a poppingly pink, Surrealist- and nature-inspired 8x10 print ($29) and photography by Trey Jaskiewicz ($30).
