Glark Goods

Glarkware has a few amusing products i had to share this 2am. First we have the EKG House messenger bag, which has a button you can add on with little cottages on it. Second is the Urban Asshole Notification Cards (not sure why it is specifies urban, i’m sure they have assholes in other places as well)… [Each card is scored but not folded so you can present them as is or fold them up so that the recipient only sees “Congrats!” before they get “You’re An Asshole” and the hard truth on the other side.] And last but not least, bringing out the Rock in the Classics buttons.

reebokmat.jpgSo i’ve been yoga/pilates mat shopping… It took me a while to find one i liked… so figured i’d share what i ended up on. I hate those with that sticky rubbery feel, and then you have to put a towel over it too? And i liked one that was light weight, but still gripped the floor. Wandering through target (was looking for random cleaning supplies)… found this great one by Reebok! It’s the ultra performance mat, and is thick, light, and the top is made of a layer of moisture-wicking material. Just tried it out, and it’s perfect. 23$

Busy Beaver

BUSY BEAVER BUTTON Co.! This image on their main page makes me want to print buttons… NOTCOT buttons anyone? … p.s. the Button-o-matic is worth looking at, wish there was one here.

maps-cava.pngFound one of these “maps” yesterday. Its gorgeous, and has great detailing, when you put it up, the shadowing of the creases of an old map really age it, although its printed on fine Italian paper (and is actually for gift wrap)… but at 4$ it looks great up! Dying to get a hold of the actual product catalog… Anyone have some connections to make that happen? Would love an old antique Milan map replica like that… or who knows what other goodies are available? Cavallini $ Co.

This rocks my world at this lovely 4:35 am , and more importantly, the response of a friend upon viewing these was, UH, i did that in junior high, go take the print/book making class at the local community college, there are tons of drawers of ancient typefaces and wingding like imagery.

So fine. Maybe i will. Look into it tomorrow.

Walkie Bits

walkie.pngRhythmic robots from Japan

They’re shaped like little turtles, and while they don’t offer a whole lot of robotic functionality, they will remember rythms tapped out o n their shells and walk to that rhythm. They can also run, play melodies, and so forth. Walkiebits, with the “world’s smallest class” (Takara) body, feature four modes: “Walk” in which the turtle shakes its rear as it makes sound, “Rhythm Mode” which will imitate learned rhythms as it walks, “Race Mode” in which the turtle runs, and “Sing Mode” where the turtle will play melodies with electronic sounds.

$1.99 Elephant of happiness

phant.jpgThis elephant has nice curves. Somedays the world gets to you, and the tiniest little thing can somehow put a smile on your face… wandered around Normal Heights and Hillcrest today in San Diego, stumbled upon Importers Outlet at 4247 Park Blvd. Filled with a pretty decent and well priced selection of goods from Southeast Asia, and a few rather bizarre objects like fuzzy plastic dayglo jesus/mary/buddhas… but great finds from pottery and incense to large furniture pieces. For perspective the little guy is about 5” head to butt.

thrifty ice cream dishes


I visited the Salvation Army Thrift Store in South San Francisco today and found this cute set of ice cream dishes.  Awww.  I sort of miss Action Thrift Store down in San Diego.  They have a ton of miscellaneous junk there.  I was looking for some old bad/good/bad framed artwork, but struck out yet again today.  If anybody reading this is from the Bay Area and knows of a really great thrift store besides Thrift Town in the Mission in SF and the Salvation Army stores, please let me know!
