Tuggle's Timber Brings One-of-a-Kind Retail to Fountain Square - Indianapolis Monthly

Browse a range of local artisans’ work under one stylish roof.

After operation From a two-car garage in their back yard, carpenter Ross Tuggle and his wife Brooke opened their doors to a store in Fountain Square in November. A lively crowd on the first Friday found a soaring room with great antique details like copper-clad ceilings (painted white to brighten things up).

Both tuggles make and sell items here. There’s Ross’ geometric wood art, mostly made from salvaged planks he finds around town, while Brooke’s handcrafted polymer clay earrings dangle from jewelry stands. However, the couple’s goal is to be a place where other lesser-known local manufacturers can also grow their businesses. On the back wall, black shelves pull together various Indiana T-shirts and environmentally conscious travel mugs.

Check out the glass shelves nearby for more great last-minute gift ideas like cute leather magazines from Polka Dot Jo. Get an original from Tuggle’s Timber for a feel-good gift – 10 percent of sales will be donated to PourHouse to help people with homelessness.
