Rob Walker - author of the Consumed column in the NyTimes and of the great blog Murketing first brought this to my attention.
Don't mess with our chocolate
Long story short...
"U.S. Chocolate Industry are supporting a change in the basic formula of chocolate, by allowing the use of vegetable fat substitutes in place of cocoa butter. In our opinion, these changes will adversely affect the eating, physical and nutritional qualities of chocolate, begging the question: What consumer benefit is associated with implementing such change?"
My response - NOTHING!

I can't figure out why I am drawn to these cards by Rachel Ortas. I guess because they are eerily cute with lovely colors. Her website is pretty cool too.

Green & Funkin

Daniel Moyer designs and builds furniture. He uses small-mill locally harvested hardwood to create the furniture. He had a lot of wood scraps from the biz so came FunkinFunction longboards .
I don't skate and don't intend but these boards are cool even for the non-skater.
I love the name, the logo and the lines. They have that old school vibe - I bet they ride pretty darn nice too....

You photo - they book

Do you have stacks of photos in boxes?
Consider Bobbooks - you provide the photos and text and they produce a beautifully bound (Swiss-made) hardcover book to display your work!

Joom on Etsy

Sure, there are other websites like Etsy but for whatever reason it is the one I visit. I have purchased numerous items from all over the world via Etsy and its been safe & hassle-free.

I continually 'suggest' my artist friends display their work on Etsy.

Here are some great pillows from Joom. Take a look around and see what catches your eye...
