For the Record Collector

Record collectors worldwide are celebrating Record Store Day this Saturday, April 13th. While some people show up for the limited edition vinyl, others are just excited that they still have a local, independent record store to shop with. Either way, record lovers love the format for its warm, analog tones, huge artwork, and tactile listening experiences. So, while your special someone is out scoring some special records, why not grab them some gifts to show them that you support their choice of music format?


PRATHER MADE

One of the biggest downsides of owning records is storage. It doesn’t take long for your shelves (or milk crates) to fill up leaving you searching for another solution. Enter Prather Made with their stylish record storage and display options that prove you can have form and function.

The folks at Alison Rose Tees know how to do Record Store Day right. Not only will they be hanging out in a record store all day (Lost Weekend Records in Columbus, Ohio) but they will also be live screen printing a special RSD19 shirt! If you can’t make it there, don’t worry because they’ve stocked us with a few of their record themed favorites.

MATT HECTORNE

It wouldn’t be Record Store Day without some records! Standing out from the usual filler that rounds out our display record rack, we also have the wonderful third release by Mississippi/Cleveland/Nashville’s own Matt Hectorne.

“With their cooing vocals and slide guitars, songs such as "Only Way Into Your Heart" and "It Don't Matter at All" have a Wilco vibe to them, and the mellow title track possesses a Grateful Dead feel. In Hectorne's talented hands, the songs come across as natural roots rock explorations.”
–Cleveland Scene

Give it a listen on Bandcamp and then stop in to grab a copy of your own.

New Makers This March

We’re wildly excited to share news that we’re growing the Threefold Gifts family of makers! This month we had three new makers join the shop, and we can't wait for you to meet them. Before you shop their wares, learn a bit about the people behind the goods.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A college ceramics and design professor-turned-full-time maker, Brian Giniewski works out of his Philadelphia pottery studio. There, he creates restrained forms featuring fluid, pastel candy-colored glazes. His labor-intensive approach to glazing and firing is part science and part kiln magic. Each piece is handled dozens of times throughout the making process and is fired up to four times to achieve the viscous, drippy effect.

He likes to make fun T-shirts and hoodies that have a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, and designs and prints all as a one-guy operation (with some good administrative help from his wife, Karin.) The inspiration for his work comes from his love of Cleveland, the emotional roller coaster of being a Cleveland sports fan, and stuff like classic sci-fi and horror movies, little wind-up metal robots from novelty stores, vintage comic books, and old-school punk rock.

Gift Guide: For The Naturalist

It looks like you’re thinking really hard about something… oh, gifts for your naturalist buddy, eh? We know the kind: They probably own a Subaru. It’s probably covered in stickers that say something like “I’d rather be camping”, or “Redwoods or bust”. Well, there’s more than just tents and paddle boards to gift your outdoors-y friend. Browse our naturalist gift guide for a bit of help!


herbs-screenprint-large-green-silkscreen-sorry-studio-handmade.jpg

Chances are that your friend has a green thumb… or at least tries to grow a few herbs here and there. If they're the type who’s always mixing up cilantro and parsley then you’ve just found the ideal gift. Sorry Studio’s two-color herbs screen print will never let them forget.

If you’ve ever heard your friend refer to themself as a “plant mom”- here’s their gift… because not all babies are living, breathing humans.

flower-arrangements-zine-illustration-collage-handmade.png

Because most of our shoppers live in the frozen tundra that is Northeastern Ohio, we know that you’ve got at least one friend who can’t stop talking about “that one time in Costa Rica”. Valley Cruise Press’ Flower Arrangements zine is chock full of fun and flowery collages by Ted Feighan. Now all you’ve gotta do is find a Mai Tai…

seed-paper-greeting-card-letterpress-floral-botanical-handmade.jpg

The coolest part about Triple Threat Press’ plantable letterpress-printed seed paper cards is that when you give a card you also gift a garden! All the recipient needs to do is soak the paper in water until it’s flexible, then plant and water regularly. The gifted gardener could potentially grow Dwarf Godetia, Lemon Mint, Maiden Pinks, Forget-Me-Not, Catchfly, English Daisy, Sweet Alyssum, Spurred Snapdragon, Corn Poppy, and Black Eyed Susan!

rust-belt-arcana-tarot-book.JPG

Whatbetter feeling in life is there than leaving society behind, hanging your hammock in a sun-dappled forest, and diving into a great book? Belt Publishing’s Rust Belt Arcana by Matt Stansberry, illustrated by David Wilson, could be exactly the read that you’re looking for. It’s part nature writing, part divination, and altogether a natural history of the Midwest as told through the time-tested structure of the tarot.

Gift Guide: For the Entertainer

If you haven’t figured it out by now, there are two steadfast rules of going to a dinner party: 1. never show up early, and 2. always bring a gift. Woah, woah, buddy… you’re starting to look a little panicked. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. We’ll even wrap your favor for you.

ComeOverAllTheTime_Kickstarter__HilaryBovay2018-5825_1024x1024.jpg

We love guestbooks… but why stop at weddings? Free Period Press has teamed up with Erin Guido to create Come Over All The Time: A Creative Guest Book. This activity book is full of creative prompts to capture fun times with fun people. It's going to look so perfect in your living room, guest room, or Airbnb! Get your guests doodling and before you know it you’ve got a complete work of art!


IMG_0434.JPG

Dinner and drinks will be even more fun with these Dittohouse rowdy lil' coasters talking your ears off!  Laser cut from 100% merino wool, each face is a little different and full of personality. Each coaster is nearly 4", and 4 coasters come in set. Take that, water stains!

IMG_0437.JPG

If not now, then when? That’s the question you should be asking yourself about investing in some Prather Team record ledges & album stands. They’re just the best thing for your upcoming holiday parties. Imagine spinning your favorite holiday LPs, all the while their album covers sit on display in a “now playing” situation above the turntable. Everyone’s dancing, having great time… and nobody has to shout “WHAT ALBUM IS THIS?!” at the top of their lungs, ruining the mood. Yeah, that’s a cool thought. Make it a reality.


IMG_0433.JPG

What if the host doesn’t drink? When a bottle of wine or some bourbon wouldn’t be welcome, we recommend plants! Yep, that’s right… plants. It’s like a bouquet but better because it’s not dead yet! The best is when the plant comes with it’s own home. Enter Gina DeSantis’ ceramic and macrame hanging planters! A sturdy brass ring at the top makes this beauty indoor and outdoor decor… no need to worry about whether or not you’ll match the party-thrower’s sofa.

Domenic Fiorello Studio’s cast concrete candle holders literally light up a room. Set the mood of the moment with bold, beautiful, colorful, and exceptionally crafted tea light and candlestick holders. These heavy, weighted vessels feature an American Ash wood grain detail that adds a softness to the otherwise cold concrete material. A modern pop of color makes these candle holders fun to mix and match in any contemporary home. Buy them as a set or individually!
