A #MadeattheCO Christmas

Our members have been busy in our makerspace getting ready for the holidays. Check out how you can support them by buying local this year!

Garner Blue

You’ll be dreaming of indigo after you take a look at what Garner Blue has to offer! Lisa Garner hand-dyes scarves, kimonos, pillows, tea towels, and so much more. This year, make sure someone has a blue Christmas (in a good way), and don’t forget to check out her brand-new Garner Blue Shop downtown at theLOCAL.

Random Pieces of Wood

Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with some handcrafted gifts from Random Pieces of Wood! Whether it’s some superhero cufflinks for him or owl earrings for her, Austin Thompson makes everything you need to make sure the season stay merry and bright. Check out his supply of coasters, wine bottles, fidget spinners, and more!

The Farmer's Perk

The weather outside may be frightful, but a cup of hot coffee by Seth Nelson is delightful . . . at any time of the year! Choose one of Farmer’s Perk’s three flavors of coffee beans: Colombia Magdalena, Nelly’s Low Octane, and Pacific Rim for a gift that is sure to keep your loved ones warm and energized. 


Deck the halls with boughs of holly—and wooden signs made right here at theCO! With Josh Cantrell and Kathy Joslin’s business Crafted, you can custom design home accessories to hang up and admire while drinking some hot chocolate and putting off taking down the Christmas decorations.


Light the Christmas tree and give illumination to the adventurer in your life this Christmas. Adam Nichols’ invention Pyyros, an emergency tool and flashlight, is the only multipurpose flashlight of its kind. Among its many tools, it contains a six-piece screwdriver kit, crossfire all-weather starter, iodine pills, and a hammer cap.

Our Jackson Home

Katie Howerton of Our Jackson Home is offering all kinds of holiday deals. Give someone a special holiday edition shirt (screen-printed right here at theCO) or a discounted collection of magazines full of stories about the people and city we love. After all, there really is no place like Our Jackson Home for the holidays.
