In honor of Father’s Day this Sunday, ArtWalk is celebrating dads.

The downtown gallery and store is featuring many handcrafted gift items, such as hand-turned or crafted pens from Miller Mark out of Boomer, which are made using everything from antlers to bullets to birdseed.

ArtWalk’s journals are made in house, using real leather and high-quality paper. According to their designers, “They smell as good as they look, and the leather gets softer with use, making these the gift that keeps getting better.”

Mountain Man Mugs hail from Boone’s own “Potbellied Potter,” Robert Erardi, who said they are based on a real-life mountain man who used to live in nearby Tennessee.

Gobble Pottery out of Lexington is the maker of the store’s most popular bacon cookers. These rustic-styled creations cook bacon up crisp right in the microwave and catch all of the drippings for easy clean-up.

For the more culinary-minded man, ArtWalk has a variety of cutting boards from Charlotte-based woodworker Robert Waddell, whose products are made of wood carefully chosen for grain pattern and color.
