Array Pendant

Bend has truly excellent seating options in a few lucky shades of pop-out color, so it should be no surprise that they add this extra special spherical pendant to their collection. At 18" x 22", it's the right sort of size for a mid-sized dining area, and the gridded galvanized iron does no harm in casting patterns across a wall. Available in white or fluorescent green/yellow. Note: You may order this ...Read more

rootcup

I've attempted to grow new plants from cuttings and I've been successful about 30% of the time, mostly because I forget to keep the cuttings watered appropriately and also because I keep sticking them in nice little glass jars that let in too much light. Here's betting that this rootcup will increase my odds significantly. The elastomer pot and lid protects a cutting's roots from light, holds the leaves above the ...Read more

PuzzleMap

This certainly isn't the only puzzle that features a major city, but it is one of the few that looks like it came from somewhere other than the dollar store. Maybe you don't want to spend $20 on a puzzle, but consider the fact that putting together pieces of a city might just etch that city into your brain, making it easier to get around whether you live there or if/...Read more

Custom Silhouette Mug

Now, don't go thinking silhouettes on mugs are only for parents. We all know you have enough imagination to think of some pretty good options for silhouettes for friends and family (a dance move? pets? inappropriate hand gestures? etc.) and there's no reason to not immortalize said silhouette on a mug. It's the perfect gift that'll seem uninspiring until they see the custom image- then it'll be awesome. ('oh, it's ...Read more

Queuger

Queuger, whaa?? Exactly. The Queuger is apparently for any use you can find for it. It's a flexible elastomer wire with aluminum core, so you can bend it or twist it any which way you want. Maybe you'll use it to keep wires organized, or to hold cabinet doors closed, or to help ease uncomfortable handles on a heavy bag... those suggestions are based entirely on the 'ideas' picture shown ...Read more

Raumgestalt tYten All-Purpose Bags

The question isn't what you would store in these Raumgestalt Tyvek bags, but what would you not store in these Raumgestalt Tyvek bags?

Tyvek is a water-resistant, tear-resistant, lightweight, and compressible material, which makes it perfect for impromptu (or permanent) storage for all manner ...Read more

Kaico Enamel Milk Pan

Who in the world needs a specialized milk pan? Pfft, not me, that's for sure, especially after trying to heat up milk for a matcha latte yesterday. Yes, I said matcha latte, and yes, I'm aware that it's a very easy recipe, but I somehow made a mess of things, and now I'm thinking that my counters would not have been splattered with green milky tea if the pan I ...Read more

Multiples Pencil Holder

Surprise, surprise, what do we have here from a retailer that some of us completely forget about? It's a metal pencil holder done in the loveliest shades of blue and teal, at a rather reasonable price too. The only thing that would make it better is if the base or cylinders were magnetic, though that wouldn't add much to the functionality, it would just make it more fun. Metal 4"H, 15"...Read more
