We were glad to get to the Twisted Sisters store this weekend after reading about it awhile back. You can't miss it in an old Taco Bell on 71st Street just passed Kroger from Binford. It's not huge but every nook and cranny is filled with unique items, many of which are made in Indiana. We bought a couple of bars of soap made by Julia's Soap Shop. We couldn't resist the coffee scented soap which we were told is good for getting the smell of stubborn cooking smells like onion and garlic off of hands. We also liked the locally made bags from Freakin' Billboard crafted out of recycled highway billboards and the bath and body products from Nature's Providence. The store also had a nice selection of scarves, home decor items, and stationery among other goodies. We liked the nice touch of our small purchase given a little flourish with a bag with ribbon for our soaps and pretty tissue paper billowing from the shopping bag.
Since the calender has turned to November, thoughts turn to gift shopping and this is a great place for that. It might not be in your usual stomping grounds but it is worth going out of the way for to browse.
(We also have to say that we love stores that have dogs and cute little Izzie behind the counter added a lot of charm to the place.)
