826 Valencia LA Poster

I'm a big fan of what 826 Valencia do, and I plan on supporting the LA branch financially by purchasing one of their cool posters soon. Since the LA branch tutoring center is disguised as a Time Travel Store (with the slogan, "Whenever you are, we're already then") their posters look like 50's style tourism posters but with a twist. Check them out here.

Serving Trio

I couldn't resist. I asked my friend who'll be visiting me this coming weekend to drop down to the MoMA Store in Soho to pick me up one of these. And she got the last one! Horray!

This three-piece glass set includes a creamer with spout, a sugar bowl, and a candy dish. The stackable design makes it easy to carry all at once. Made by Iittala of non-leaded crystal. Hand-wash only.

Designed by Camilla Knopp

Jimi Wallet

For boyfriends who don't carry a "real" wallet, but instead use a butterfly or money clip, and have experienced their money and license and credit card fly everywhere at least once. In public.

The Jimi™ wallet is a compact, colorful, and water resistant answer to the stodgy outdated leather wallet. It’s designed to slip into your front pocket, purse, or around your neck on a lanyard.

Stelton Water Jug

I love the vacuum version of this jug with its great colors, but the price of this water jug can't be beat.

This water jug by Stelton is the perfect thing for cool beverages. Approximately 72 oz capacity.
