Patina

Walking into Patina can induce sensory overload—everywhere there are beautiful, sweet, and hilarious treasures that really want to go home with you instead of going to that special someone you're shopping for. You'll find gems like Awkward Family Photos, the bestselling coffee table book, "I [heart] Dad" mugs, and bacon gumballs. There's also jewelry, fun handbags and scarves, creatively decorated photo frames, cards, lotion, and garden and home supplies—and all at prices that won't kill the wallet. Be warned: Patina's merchandise is so irresistible that it's dangerous to stop in if you're "just looking."
