IMG_1902Happy summer, everyone! Here comes June, ushering in long days, balmy nights and outdoor celebrations. In two weeks (on Sunday, June 16), we will get the chance to honor dads, dadas, daddies, poppas, papas and pops everywhere. No matter what you call your father, show him how much he means to you with a treasure from New Stone Age.

IMG_1903Your father was one of the first to introduce you to the world. This light-up globe provides the perfect accompaniment to his tales of all the places he went before he settled down to become your dad.

Is Dad handy with a knife? Give him one of these beautiful, slender yet masculine wood-handled knives, and a repurposed knife honer made from antique porcelain wire-insulation tubes.

Have you checked out our curated collection of vintage cameras? They make a great gift for the shutterbug father who’s patient enough to teach his kids the timeless art of manual photography.

IMG_1912Dad can always use a dapper hat to protect his forehead from the sun as he runs after his brood. These Panama hats are the real deal, expertly handwoven from natural fibers.

We recently stumbled across this gorgeous vintage wood typewriter table. It’s in excellent condition, and fits right in with our collection of working vintage typewriters. If your father pines for the simpler days before the distraction of the Internet and misses the tactile tapping of the keys, set him up with this lovely homage to bygone decades and he’ll feel as winsomely wordy as Hemingway. Adorn his desktop with these silly wooden blocks to keep him smiling as he types.

IMG_1940Do you sense a retro theme going on? We must admit that we at the store are drawn to earlier times, when even the most utilitarian objects in the home were designed with beauty and style. This phone is a lovely tricolor homage to the rotary phones of the 40s, 50s and 60s, but it works just like a new phone. Get one for you and one for your father, and the phone’s good looks will inspire you to call him more often.

IMG_1938Top off your gift with this sweet little embroidered card, because no matter how old you are, you’ll always be your father’s little monkey.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
