Redefining the Footed Bowl. Seriously.

These incredible treasures just arrived today and we are in love.  The footed bowl comes in two sizes, one for generous portions of ice cream, cereal or soup, the other for your favorite treats...chocolates or pistachios perhaps?  The mug stands proud waiting to serve your morning caffeine or hot cocoa (or Irish coffee?).  Each piece is individually hand-crafted for even greater personality.

Cooler Weather Calls For Cooler Socks.

My husband often points out that men have so little opportunity to dress "outside of the box" at work.  The standard trouser and button down shirt that have become the new norm in most casual office-wear can indeed be embellished but has to be done in a tasteful and slightly subtle way.  A cool tie, unique cufflinks or an outstanding pair of sock perhaps?  These inspired graphic masterpieces are comfortable, well-made and just the right amount of "surprise" for any occasion.

Providence City Dining Cards...Eat Well, Save Money, Help Others

Our first box of City Dining Cards arrived just now and we can't wait to share them.  Each "deck" contains 50 $10 discounts to locally owned restaurants plus 2 "wild cards" with extra goodies.  The deck costs $20 and 5% of each deck sold goes to local food banks in Rhode Island. 

They couldn't be easier to use: spend $30 or more in a featured restaurant, redeem your card with payment and receive $10 off the food portion of your bill.  If you use the whole deck that's $500 in savings.  And the cards are for awesome restaurants all over the city, including our fabulous neighbors Flan y Ajo, Cuban Revolution, Local 121 and Bravo!

The Most Organized Way to Save Your Pennies For Something Really Fabulous

This brilliant coin bank contains three distinct compartments within the vessel.  Each one has its own stopper so you can "withdraw" from one fund without touching another.  It comes complete with a dry erase marker for labeling your savings accounts and has a cool, architectural aesthetic.  So save a pig, go for this bank instead.

Yes, They Are Lizard Magnifiers. And Yes, They're Awesome.

At over 12" from tip to tail, we simply couldn't resist these charming creatures.  They are the perfect companion to a favorite coffee table book and total conversation starters in their own right.  So which will it be, alligator or salamander?
