Bare walls have plenty of advantages: ample surface area for finger painting, an absence of disapproving Churchill posters, and no mirrors reminding you that your hair is on fire. Fill rooms' middles with furnishings so you can keep walls clear with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of locally hand-crafted arts and crafts at Practical Art, located on North Central Avenue.

Named the Best Place to Buy Art You Can Manhandle in 2009 by the Phoenix New Times, Practical Art culls meticulously hand-crafted arts and home goods, each conceived with a personal touch from one of the shop's 70-plus featured artisans. Patrons can peruse the brick-walled show space that's stocked with home-accentuating art wares, including salad bowls and kitchen utensils, mosaic garden pots, spice jars, cards, journals, and jewelry made from the crystallized tears of '80s WWF wrestlers. Though the prices of items vary as much as their artist-distinguished purpose, the majority of items can be had for less than $35. Practical Art also hosts frequent events to showcase merchandise and promote artists, from upcoming photography exhibitions to a Valentine's Eve clay-throwing ceramics demonstration.
