Mohair Pear, Barn Happy, Ivy Trellis, Hatchings & Hens, the Hearst Center for the Arts, the Cedar Falls Visitor Center and many other shops sell perfectly-sized stocking stuffers that are made right here in Iowa!
Barn Happy, Iowa’s Outstanding Retail Experience, is filled with a plethora of products made in Iowa. You will find jewelry, rugs, socks, aprons, cutting boards and more. Their gift shop is packed with goodies! If you’re shopping for the gourmet in your family, Barn Happy doesn’t disappoint.

Mohair Pear on College Hill is also one of those stores with gifts galore. Want a t-shirt or gift that says Iowa? They have that. They also carry products made in Iowa including tea towels made by local artisan, Kate Brennan Hall.
Several stores in the downtown district of Cedar Falls such as Little Prairie Girl, Ivy Trellis, Hatchlings & Hens and Vintage Iron sell t-shirts, tea towels, soaps and candles made in Iowa. Recently, Hatchlings & Hens partnered with several artisans for their Home-Made for the Holidays event with several artisans on site selling handmade items. Often, they also host Try Pie Saturdays!
