One of a Kind Show!

We are in one of our most favorite cities this week (Chicago!) for the One of a Kind Show at the insanely massive Merchandise Mart.  Please come and visit us.  We're in booth # 3029.  We're pretty close to the hot pink cafe and coat check.

Look! Here's an actual picture of our booth!  If you see something you like RUSH on out.  This show is crazy busy.

You might notice that our web shop is down right now while we are at the show. That's because we have EVERYTHING with us!  Sorry about that, all you online holiday shoppers.  We'll be back soon.

What are you doing for the next 80 weeks?

What are you doing for the next 80 weeks?  Whatever it is, memorialize it with one of our super cute Weekly Planners, why don't ya?

We take the ever-popular Little Golden Books and turn them into fun 4x6 sized weekly planners.  Each book is packed with approximately 80 pages of undated weeks AND to-do lists.  In keeping with our eco-friendliness, the pages are printed with soy-based inks on recycled content paper stock and of course, bound with our recycled carbon-steel binding wire.

The pages are undated, so you start your planner any time, and if you need a break from all the madness, take some time off.  Your undated pages will be waiting for you when you are ready.

And let's just say that you aren't much of a planner person.  Why not use this cute little tome as a micro-journal? At the end of the day, just put in a sentence or two about your action-packed adventures.  It takes some of the pressure off of writing AMAZING, in-depth memoirs, but will definitely still keep tabs on when exactly it was that you tried sushi for the first time or met that Britney Spears impersonator that turned out to be your chemistry teacher.

Wire You Hiding?

We're up to our necks in binding wire! UPS guy must love us this time of the year.  Between this and super-heavy boxes of coaster parts, I'm thinking we ought to treat him to a nice gift for all his hard work.

The holiday show season is upon us, and we're gearing up big time with a lot of great journals, date planners, jewelry and coaster sets just for you!

Be sure to check out our show schedule to see where you can find us this December. (Hint: Chicago, Philly, New York mostly!) Of course you should check our shop, too, because it's got a lot of great things waiting for you, 24/7, no need to fight crowds or traffic.

Join the Club

Our Book Club earrings make a great gift for the Bibliophile in your life.  Each pair is punched directly from the cover of a vintage tome - typically the old Reader's Digest Condensed Books, but sometimes other library editions, too.

They hang from a 1.5 inch ear wire which is platinum plated brass, nickel-free.  Tons of beautiful patterns to choose from.
