This Just In: Hold-Me-Tight Pillows

August 17, 2011


Molly said: “Love it…its a nice way to send my niece a long-distance hug.”

An anonymous voter said: “That’s adorable, though I think the crying one’s a little depressed. It appears to have the same comforting factors as a blankie, but it can’t rip and gather dirt by being dragged. Plus you can hug and sleep on it–very cute.”

MaryKay said: “These are so cute. Grandkids will love them.”

Our voters loved that these hand-loomed pillows are made with super-soft 100% pima cotton yarn, hand-loomed, and colorful. These squeezable companions have special arm-shaped handles, so little ones can hold them tight when a big hug’s in order.

Pica said: “Love this, and think it would make a great hostess gift for my bread baking friends!”

Susan said: “Great item, great price! This is the kind of thing that makes a great gift or purchase for my own use. A really useful item!”

Top Comments of the Week

August 11, 2011

We asked, you answered. Here are the top comments from our community voting app this week.

Lindsey said” If this fits in the back pocket of jeans – perfect!!! I have been looking for something like this for years. The one I have now is falling apart and the company stopped making them. I WILL buy this as soon as you sell it.”

Thanks for the feedback, Lindsey. We don’t want you sitting lopsided, so the need for a thin, durable, card case wallets is clear. Not only are these upcycled card case wallets sleek, they’re also made by fair trade artisans using old newspapers and cleaned up plastic bags.



Nicole said: “This is insane!! I love it!!!”

Sometimes a little insanity is just what you need to liven up your wardrobe. Thanks for the enthusiasm, Nicole!

Ann said: “Do we really need to promote more alcohol? Think about the children.”

Don’t worry, Ann. If these cufflinks are accepted into our assortment, they’ll only be available in adult sizes. Since these silver-plated cufflinks feature real vintage cash register buttons, and real cash registers sometimes ring-up booze, words like whiskey,” “beer,” and “wine” grace these shiny wrist accessories.

Crumpled City Map

Emmie said: “Great idea and reasonable price – most of my travel books/maps are damaged from the winds and rain and are useless after one vacation. GENIUS!”

Would a map of New York City make navigating the boroughs a breeze? Could you use a map of London on your next European adventure? Crumpled City Maps make bringing a map along easy. Since they’re made of a durable, waterproof, rip-resistant material, you can crumple them up and stick them in a pocket or pouch. If you agree with Emmie and think this idea is genius, find your way to our community voting app and share your feedback!
