Best Gift Shop: Wholly Craft

From the March 28, 2013 edition

Where in Columbus can one find knitted Cthulhu masks, cupcake bath bombs and wooden Ohio-shaped coasters? Wholly Craft, duh.

This Clintonville store — you can’t miss its hot pink storefront — is the gift that keeps on giving.

At least our readers think so; this is the third year in a row Wholly Craft has taken the Best Gift Shop crown.

The store, run by the inimitable Olivera Bratich, sells inexpensive handmade items from more than 200 crafters, many of whom are local.

Plus, having turned its basement into the Supply Closet, a place where makers can swap for or purchase other crafters’ extra supplies, Wholly Craft is officially the unofficial home of Columbus Craft.
