Made In Alton

Right now we stock creations by four Alton-area makers...

Stuffed Stuff by Sage is made by none other than Funky Planet's own Sage Macklay. Her creations are all knitted, and range from stuffed animals to foods to whatever she thinks up. All of her patterns are original. Our logo and mascot Catpants was originally a Stuffed Stuff.

A bunch of cuties

Jean Curvey has a bunch of her ceramic works on display. These include cute animal figurines, baby shoe ornaments, snowmen, and our personal favorite, ceramic renditions of Catpants. Most of the figurines have the Jean's signature rattling-ball-of-clay on the inside; a very fun touch.

Larry Ashlock is a local game designer. He started the company Way Funner Games and put out his first title, "Tic-Tac-Match". It's an awesome card game that plays like a combination of Uno and Tic-Tac-Toe. Here's a quote from his website...

"Tic-Tac Match is a wildly unpredictable card game variation of the classic game tic-tac-toe. Just a few minutes to learn provides hours of enjoyment. Challenge your opponent to match three cards in a row of BOTH the same symbol and the same color by stacking on cards already in play. But don’t be fooled by the simple rules. Action Cards interject deep strategies that guarantee a winner every time. Players can flip sides mid-game, wipe out their opponent’s hand or play two cards on a single turn. There is even a team-play version for four players."

Great game
