gig posters volume 1

Since 2001, has been the
Internet's first and best resource for poster
art; their massive online database showcases
more than 90,000 posters from over 7,000
different designers including all of today's
top poster studios. Gig Posters Volume I
highlights the 700+ best examples in their
collection, including 101 perforated and
ready-to-hang posters for bands such as
Radiohead, Wilco, Decemberists, the Shins,
Arcade Fire, Sleater-Kinney, and more.
Among the many designers contributing to
this collection are Rob Jones (of White Stripes
fame), The Decoder Ring (house artists for
Modest Mouse), Patent Pending, Tara
McPherson, and more. Packaged in an
oversized 11x14" paperback, Gig Posters
Volume I is a spectacular compilation of rock
show art (and one hell of a cheap way to
decorate a dorm room or apartment).

magno radio

Designed by Singgih Kartono
Hand-crafted in an Indonesian farming village,
the Magno AM/FM radio has an appealing mix
of retro and modern style. Made from new
growth wood, for every tree that is used in
production, a new one is planted. Its uncoated
surface should be oiled periodically to encourage
a deeper connection between user and object.
MP3 compatible, with short wave reception.

"Seconds" series...

Dinner Plates Set of 4
The "Seconds" series challenges the rules
surrounding modern day consumer items.
Do decorations always need to be centered?
Is a whole bird better than a half? These
elegant "mistakes" are artfully and carefully
applied to porcelain plates, bowls and cups
+ saucers by New York designer Jason Miller.

Mo's Dark Bacon Bar

Following the huge popularity of Mo's Bacon
Bar in milk chocolate, we present the newest
member of the exotic candy bar family. With
the same applewood smoked bacon and alder
wood smoked salt the beautifully rich 62% dark
chocolate encases these tantalizing flavors.

We also have many other great flavours in stock
including Wooloomoolo, Red Fire, Naga, Black
Pearl, Barcelona and Goji berry ... great for
stocking stuffers and the library box set of 9
mini bars makes an excellent gift!

June 26, 2010 Update... It's too difficult to keep
the chocolate at it's peak of perfection during the
warm summer months so check back in the fall
for more stock (we're out of the bacon bars for
the moment folks, sorry !)
