What You'll Get
In times of global socio-economic disparity and exploitation, sometimes all that's needed to renew local optimism is a twee gwowing in Bwooklyn, or Fresno in this case. Take a cheerful skip through the talents of your town with the help of today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of locally made art, crafts, and other indie goodies at Twee Boutique & Gallery in the Tower District.
Twee Boutique & Gallery promotes community-minded commerce by stocking its charming shelves with merchandise produced by independent artists, designers, and craftspeople from the Fresno area, most working within a 20-mile radius of the shop. As you take a stroll through Twee, feast your rods and cones on the boutique's handmade one-of-a-kinderies, including well-crafted stationery and greeting cards ($3–$16), jewelry ($12–$50), purses and messenger bags ($20–$50), and all-natural soaps and lotions ($3–$5). Treat your consumer-conscious dachshund to a handmade dog collar ($14), or get hooked on Fresno buttons by designer Alexa Westerfield ($1), recently featured on FresnoBeehive.com.
Twee's interior is a kaleidoscope of creativity, kitsch, and color, with an ever-evolving cache of consignment items perfect for hard-to-shop-for friends and family members. With Mother's Day and International Tuba Day just around the corner, stop into Twee to hand-select something handcrafted and give your hot-glue-gun-shy mitts a sympathetic siesta.
