Making one’s own clothes requires corralling a herd of sheep, feeding them rainbows to dye them different colors, and hiring a professional hairdresser to braid them into sweaters. Leave fiber finagling to the experts with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of handmade art and crafts, boutique clothing, and jewelry online or in-store at Art Star Gallery and Boutique. Additional shipping charges may apply for online orders.
The trained eyes at Art Star Gallery and Boutique carefully select works by artists from all over the country to curate an assortment of handcrafted art, gifts, and clothing. Among apparel for men, women, and children, a silk-screened unisex "I Fight Crime" T-shirt by Noosed Kitty ($30) proclaims a cunningly masked feline's passion for justice and mischief.
Warn coworkers against precaffeine small talk with a set of white Folded Pigs espresso cups ($12) bearing black skulls, or stay in touch with friends using colorful pullout mailables from a Native Flowers Notecard Book by Jill Bliss ($15). The Figs & Ginger nestling necklace ($71–$80) suspends a mother-bird pendant and up to four baby birds on a sterling-silver branch, accentuating delicate collarbones and acting as a ventriloquist doll during birdcall demonstrations.
Though Art Star Gallery and Boutique sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Art Star Gallery
Art Star Gallery’s wares include offbeat threads and home goods to furnish well-considered lives. Jewelry reflects influences ranging from high art to childlike impishness, including patterned glass earrings and mustache cufflinks, and tank dresses in funky prints swish around knees as they draw admiring glances. Shoppers can stock their homes with eccentric touches by purchasing paper goods such as greeting cards and prints to put in kitchens, in bedrooms, and over failed tunneling experiments in the cellar.
