Using a roll of chalkboard table runner paper and a piece of chalk, Kelsey at our NW store created great art for the table. C’mon, you can do it, too!
You’ve heard of how Amazon is using its monopoly position to squeeze Hachette and its authors, including Mr. Colbert? Well, don’t kid yourself; what Amazon is trying to do to books, it wants to do to everything. Whether it’s bowling balls, tennis shoes, or auto parts, Amazon wants to monopolize the sale of everything. Everything. That’s not good for anybody, Except, of course, for Amazon.

We just saw this bar at the High Point, North Carolina furniture market this past week. It’s pretty cool, with an incredible degree of design and manufacturing excellence. No surprise, really, considering it’s made by BDI, who makes fabulous home theater furniture. The wood is either light oak or walnut, the top is etched glass. It’s not even in production yet, but we have our order in. It’s going to sell for, probably, $2,199.
We just saw this item and we’re think of carrying it. It’s called the Handle Hands and it has won a bunch of design awards. It’s a rigid, silicone-lined grip that clamps and locks onto a pan handle. You just squeeze to lock it on, then push the buttons at each end to release it. It can all be done with one hand. The Handle Hands can be left on a pan while you cook. It also is really handy for pulling out a hot oven rack. It would probably sell in the $9.95 – $12.95 range.

Calling all Fiesta fans…coming sometime this summer is a brand-new color called Poppy. As you can see, it’s a beautiful red-orange, slotting in between current Fiesta colors of Tangerine and Scarlet. Look for it at Kaboodle soon.
