Igloo is the go-to shop for the unique and whimsical. The unique and whimsical "what" is always a good question, as the shop has a way of finding stuff you may never have imagined. This doesn't mean they sell off-the-wall, freakish torture devices or other such odd things. A number of products offered are simple household items turned unique or typically mundane items spruced up with a bit of artwork, illustrations and overall whimsy.
A prime example is Igloo's selection of T-shirts. A plain white T-shirt is, well, boring. But nab a T-shirt, crewshirt or other apparel from Igloo and you'll have the world laughing and smiling at the aura of humor they bring. Igloo's logo is a sweet blue whale, or at least the outline of a blue whale with a grid running through him. He's even cuter than the Twitter bird, and he shows up on T-shirts and other items around the shop.
Other apparel feature one-panel cartoons or sayings that speak volumes. Artist Geoff McFetridge has a few items in the shop, one of which is a tee featuring "the solitary arts." If you're curious as to what these solitary arts may be, take a gander at the Igloo shop. We'll give you a hint that one involves a typewriter and another involves a skateboard. Perhaps you're a full-fledged member of The Solitary Arts Skate Team, in which case you'd really dig McFetridge's other T-shirt that proclaims it. T-shirts and apparel feature screen-printing on durable, quality materials. Some even come with color choices.
If you prefer your art in places other than your chest, check out Igloo's slew of goodies in its printed matter category. McFetridge's art is joined by several other artists including Gary Benzel, Todd St. John and Joel Kitzmiller, to name a few. Printed matter includes posters and other silk screen wall hangings, some of which are signed and dated limited editions.
Reading material makes the printed matter category with a full-color book celebrating the Green Lady's 10th anniversary. You can also opt for an underground zine, such as the "Ratz Attak" by the Critterz. The latter is described as a "ridiculous 6-page Xerox" that comes with a two-color interior and three color options for the cover.
If not, there's still more fun stuff in store. The accessories category picks up the slack not covered by other categories. Items include a funky, hand-made, solid oak wave tape dispenser by artist St. John. Get some funky Naviglow tape to go with it, with the tape design created by artist Stella Bugbee. More funky stuff comes in the form of a laptop sleeve featuring canvas printed with a snazzy woodgrain pattern.
Mundane accessories--and other doodads around the house--have never been as fun as they can be when you shop Igloo.
