Lego Architecture

Lego Architecture
The phrase 'fun for the whole family!' keeps running through my head when I look through the whole of Lego Architecture.

Some of my favorites are harder to find and a bit more expensive (Villa Savoye, Farnsworth House, etc.), but look around and see if there's one...Read more

Stuart & Lau Portfolio Case

Stuart & Lau Portfolio Case
Another laptop sleeve? You may be sort of sick of seeing leather sleeves, but I can't help but point out how sophisticated an attache can be compared to a ragged-y old backpack or beat-up bag. It fits 13" devices, and each one is handcrafted in New York City. Perhaps it could be a nice gift for someone who likes nice things? Dimensions: 14.5” x 10.25” - Swiss made Riri No....Read more

When tipped, the rocker stopper automatically opens to let coffee flow out- this limits the amount air entering the jug, thus preventing your coffee from cooling prematurely. You can use the EM77 Vacuum Jug to keep beverages cold as well, so don't put it in the back of the cupboard when spring comes...Read more
