Father’s Day will soon be upon us, and our talented local artisans have created all kinds of goodies and gadgets perfect for dear old dad. Use the following Father’s Day gift guide to find something extra-special this year.

The below list is arranged by area for your convenience. Due to the current state of our postal system, it might be worth trying to arrange for gift pickup instead. (Some artisans have already mentioned this option on their Etsy page. For those that don’t, it might be worth asking).
