For $5, today's side deal gets you $10 worth of retro western-pop housewares, art, candies, and more at Frosty Darling, a humble lil' art boutique on East Broadway. Designed and arranged by owner and artist Gentry Blackburn, the store is lined with decorative selections for accessory-laden ladies, blank-walled homes, and unadorned shelves seeking new trinkets to hold.

At Frosty Darling, the displayed art and giftature is part throwback, part homage to modernity, and part pop culture; the New York Times calls it "whimsical." Artful items include handmade barrettes ($4–$6) and felt brooches ($6), as well as a variety of pins ($1), bookmarks ($1.50), soaps ($5–$8), coin purses ($4), and distinctly scented erasers ($3). Gentry and her fellow area artists produce brilliant letterpress cards ($4) and postcards ($1), both of which pair nicely with Frosty Darling's well-stocked shelves of old-timey candy, such as Atomic Fireballs, candy cigarettes, and Fruit Stripe gum ($0.15–$1.50). The store is open Tuesday–Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.

Reviews

The New York Times and local online art magazine 15 Bytes recently mentioned Frosty Darling. Three Yelpers give it an average of four stars:

  • …a whimsical gift shop stocked with retro candy and handmade clothing, accessories, and housewares by the owner, Gentry Blackburn, and other Utah designers. – Jaime Gross, New York Times
  • But the result is not just a cute, re-hash of pop, or merely novel house decor, it is the bigger picture of her work. It has an edge; a slightly odd, frigid modernity that upon closer inspection reveals the concept behind the immaculate craft. – Cara E. Despain, 15 Bytes
  • If you're into smart, crafty, girly things, you will love this place. – Mia C., Yelp
