ou never know what might strike your fancy at The DIME Store in Denton. It might be a laser-cut air-plant holder or a bold framed woodcut that speaks to your heart. Perhaps you’ll discover a delicate bouquet of felt flowers, your new favorite line of skincare or a ceramic mug that feels just right in your hand. One thing’s for sure: If you’re looking for something that’s unique, handcrafted and locally made, you’ll find it here. The Makers DIME is an acronym for Denton Independent Maker Exchange. Before opening the now popular shop six years ago, owner Shelley Christner felt a calling to build a supportive community for Denton creative entrepreneurs.
