Urban Oxide bags are here!!

Urban Oxide bags are made of recycled embossed rubber for an indestructible, practical and super hip look.  And since they are a division of Hobo you know they are a brilliant design...a minimalist aesthetic somehow still full of zippers and pockets to keep life organized.  Come check out the new silhouettes, they are amazing!

Just because it's gray outside doesn't mean you can't have a colorful week...

Crayon Rocks were designed by a teacher of children with special needs to enable them to be expressive...the "rocks" are easy to grip and strengthen the muscles required to hold a writing utensil.  They are also colorful, playful, functional and inspiring...just what we all need while the weather does its gray thing out there.  A red velvet pouch makes them even more of a treasure!

Irish Whiskey "on the rocks"...seriously.

Whiskey rocks are ice cube sized pieces of carved Vermont soapstone.  You stick them in your freezer until they are cold, then pour your favorite spirit (Irish Whiskey?) into a glass, add a few rocks to the glass and they chill your drink without melting and diluting it.  Simple, brilliant and cool.
