These are one of the coolest things I have seen EVER– Totem Stacking Cups. Perfect for small apartments that are short of space (or anyone in need of something fun & functional), these porcelain mugs stack one on top of each other in the Totem tradition. Set of 4 for $59.95. Or maybe you need these melamine plates Hot Plates– set of 4 for $30, 2 of each size- two 7.8″ plates and two 10″ plates-
Or how about this Hold Me Tight Pretty Bowl– $15.95-
Besides being lovely to look at- this bowl also has some more meaning: Good table manners are encouraged in Japanese dining rituals. When eating rice, take the bowl in one hand and chopsticks in another and lift it to your mouth, while taking your chopsticks to “scoop” the rice into your mouth. This prevents you from dropping food. When you do not get a soupspoon, it is proper to drink the soup out of the bowl and eat the solid food with chopsticks. The drawing of a hand on the outer surface of the bowl enlightens and reminds the guest to lift the bowl when eating.

ROCK OUT with this super clever & cool (and useful!) 2 GB USB Flash Drive. approx 3″ high and made from PVC these come in a nice little box and have a limited one year warranty. Or maybe PEACE is more your thing…
I also FLIPPED OUT when my friend Sems pulled his computer out of one of these laptop sleeves that looks like an Inter Office Envelope. LOVE IT. Seriously. 2 sizes, 13″ and 15″ (made to fit the MacBook and MacBook Air but my PC fit in there too). Inter Office Laptop Sleeve– $42 and $44 depending on size.

Today I am working at home trying to get my apartment in tip-top shape, thanks to my friend Jennie who is an interior designer (Jennie has a great eye and helped me at the shop when I first opened too. She rocks!). As you might know from checking out the store, I do not like empty space on my walls- and as I eye up one lone wall in my entryway I think this Grandpa Clock would work wonderfully there. Yeah! I have been obsessed with this ever since I saw it- and now excited I have room for it at my home. Its a clever clock printed on fabric- screws and plugs included to make it a real working clock. 17.3″ wide by 65 inches long (over 5 feet!). A Grandfather clock for $79? Pretty cool!
