Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, and fathers would sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of handmade jewelry, gifts, gourmet food, accessories, and more at Craft Company No. 6, located in the historic Victorian-era Engine Company No. 6 firehouse in the Neighborhood of the Arts.
Hop online to get acquainted with the artists whose work lies just beyond Craft Company No. 6's whimsically adorned doors. Packrats can store tin-foil origami in a five-point-star marquetry box hand-crafted by artisan Gary White ($48+), and time-travelers can track their temporal tours with a mini arch clock made by craftsman Mark Diebolt ($35). Adorn your aural organs with Jane Barthelemy's latest creation, Strawberry Cream earrings ($54), or ride the wobbly-musical-note look of the recycled-glass Mayapple Wave ear ornaments ($38.50). For a more mouth-friendly accouterment, try out the beehive baby-spoon set ($22) and Screamin' Mimi's Sweet Hot salsa, ideal for scooping up with nachos or simply eating from the top of an ice-cream cone.
In between exploration of Craft Company No. 6's goods and gifts, customers can enjoy the interior of the store, with nine dazzlingly decorated rooms, an outdoor courtyard, and the ghost of Chubby, the fire-fighting horse, occupying the premises. Visit Craft Company No. 6 for handmade and heartfelt gifts and jewelry to decorate the wrists of your home and the shelves of your earlobes.
