Reach for the Stars

Take a piece of the eclipse home with themed merchandise

Wish you could take a piece of April 8’s total solar eclipse with you? Scoop up eclipse-themed souvenirs available from Evansville-area merchants.

River City Coffee and Goods (223 Main St.) has jumped on the wearable merch wagon and offers Evansville-centric eclipse T-shirts for $25, tote bags for $22, and stickers for $2-$4 each. Order an eclipse-themed latte featuring gold dust while in the checkout line.

Special edition soap and a total eclipse-themed chocolate bar by Equal Exchange are among the goodies found at Sixth and Zero (425 Main St.). For $25, a cool “U.S. Path of Totality Tour” shirt lists what time the eclipse will cross major cities, including Evansville. A pair of eclipse viewing glasses comes free with this purchase!

Wooden eclipse magnets can be found at Rare Bird Gifts & Goods (2605 Lincoln Ave.) and Your Brother’s Bookstore  (504 Main St.). Celestial windchimes and wooden art are for sale at The Confectionery  (2003 Lincoln Ave.), and artist Jon Fuchs is selling prints of his watercolor painting depicting the eclipse over the Old Vanderburgh County Courthouse.

Clay and Jesse Gillham at Kentucky’s The Henderson Hygge Co. have crafted solar eclipse candles, for sale for $22.

Prefer the consumable kind of merchandise? There is plenty to load up on. Start with sun- and moon-themed iced cookies from Donut Bank, and pair them with an $18 bag of a special eclipse roast from Honey Moon Coffee Co.. Myriad Brewing and Barker Brewhouse have collaborated on a new brew: MoonPie Porter. Lic’s Ice Cream and Deli has gone all out on solar eclipse sundae, featuring chocolate ice cream and fudge topped with whipped cream and a choco cream … and two Moon Pies. A steal for only $7.99 plus tax, this treat comes with a free pair of eclipse glasses.

On a budget? Build your own eclipse-themed snack pack with bags of Sun Chips, fruit-flavored pouches of Capri Sun, bottles of Sunkist soda, cream-filled MoonPies, and Mars and Milky Way candy bars.

Don’t forget your eclipse glasses! Find a list here of area vendors.
