Gifts for Dad
Shopping for Father's Day can be a tricky one-- if your dad is anything like mine there's only one real criteria for a good gift: is it useful? Soap, key chain, shoelaces, coffee cup. Yep, yep, and yep. Now you might say hand crafted hot sauce and a cork board dart set aren't really functional...but for a certain dad, you bet they are! We've highlighted some of our favorite dad-centered books and gifts below. Call the shop to place anything you see here on hold 619-236-5802.
