Ida Red Boutique

The only thing I love more than an indie business is an indie business with a strong sense of place.

Ida Red is such a business. Equal parts record store, gift shop, entertainment venue, and social conscience, Ida Red is an enthusiastic promoter of all things Tulsa. You’ll find Cain’s Ballroom caps; Leon Russell T-shirts, Hanson albums; Broken-Arrow-based Man Candles; Out of Print T-shirts (for every shirt sold, the company donates a book to a community in need); TOMS shoes and sunglasses (buy a pair, send a pair to a child in an underdeveloped nation); and all manner of handmade accessories, knickknacks, and gifts. Everything in the building is either local, socially conscious, recycled, handmade, fair trade, weird, or all of the above.

Behold:

I need a bigger closet.

Ida Red has a nice assortment of Okie-made soaps and such.

Man Candles. I highly recommend the baseball scent.

Leon!

Ginormous purses.

Lullaby versions of AC/DC, Aerosmith, the Flaming Lips, and more.

Want.

Old-fashioned gum, candy, and sodas are also available.

Ida Red is located at 3336 S. Peoria Ave., about a block and a half south of Shades of Brown. Parking is available behind the store. Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 10:30 a.m. to “late” Thursday through Saturday. For more information, call (918) 949-6950 or visit www.idaredboutique.com.
