You know how it goes — you have that one friend or relative who ceaselessly manages to stump you when holidays and birthdays roll around. They never seem to need anything, but nothing you can find in stores seems to suit them. And you don’t want to fall back on the old Amazon gift card again. So what could you possibly get for this difficult person?
Well, luckily for you, there’s tinplatestudios, which is an Etsy shop run by Seattle-based sculptor Anthony Hicks. Here, you can find just what you’re looking for, from cryptozoological anomalies preserved under glass to a mounted Feejee Mermaid.
