under $100: may 15th

this week’s under $100 column doesn’t really have a theme- other than to celebrate cute products that won’t break the bank. because everyone needs a little treat now and then.

I like the hand glass. And the bottle-opener. Did you see the bull bottler-opener? Swoon.


Thanks for giving us such great items and low low prices. I love the tray.

I’m embroidering little cloth drawstring bags to hand out at our family reunion this summer. Everyone fills them with a little token – like a Detroit pin, pine cone, pebble – it doesn’t matter. It’s the sentiment. Your post is a good reminder that gifts don’t have to cost a lot to impress.


What a gorgeous selection – love the Tord Boontje necklace..have only ever seen the paper cut out screens but these are wonderful :)


When I see the new design of Tord Boontje, I’m so proud of what our little country brings into the design-world. :)
