This is where you can find a cool kid gift. We love this site. Love the stuff. Love the blog. Love the about page, for goodness sake. Just look at the owner's picture here and read his statement:
"...if were you to go back a little further, you'd find a kid who was never finished rearranging his room and would rather stay inside and weave pot-holders on a plastic loom and bake shrinky-dinks than run around the yard. Clearly when attributes were passed out, I got the crafty gene (read - I’m an artsy dork!)." Robert Mahar obviously enjoys curating his online shop of artisan-made objects that he "would be thrilled to present to any kid". It shows. Below the jump is just some of the fabulous stuff he sells.
