VERY FUN! Paper New York: Build Your Own Big Apple– $19.95.

Compost this! AND IF YOU ARE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, COME TRICK OR TREATING TOMORROW!!!

By special customer request we just got in a great kitchen counter-size composter! Start making your own compost straight away by collecting all your organic waste. Comes with Carbon Filter that significantly reduces any organic smells (we also have extra filters sold separately) which is a much nicer way of collecting it all that I grew up with. We would have a (smelly) little trashcan on the countertop, um- no filters, no nothing- just good old rotting food. Rob always says I grew up living “off the grid” before there was even a grid! Anyway, this is a very good looking composter that will fit nicely on your counter (11″ high) to get you started on your merry composting way!! Composter– $24, Carbon Replacement Filters– $13.50.

And IF YOU ARE IN THE ‘HOOD TOMORROW (10/31) PLEASE COME BY FOR TRICK OR TREATING!! WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE EVERYONE’S COSTUMES AND HAVE LOTS OF CANDY FOR EVERYONE WHO COMES IN DRESSED UP!!!
