The Denton Independent Maker Exchange, or DIME store, is a shared collective of makers in Denton, giving local crafters a physical alternative to Etsy. The store carries hand-crafted goods like embroidered wooden jewelry, bow ties for dogs, organic soy candles, plush mushroom characters and prideful Denton paraphernalia. The store resides in a quaint house less than half a mile off the courthouse square. Besides shopping, DIME offers crafting courses like hand lettering, calligraphy, embroidery and weaving. The collective also participates with First Fridays, staying open late once a month to offer late night shopping with refreshments.
