Better Take Better Notes

We don't know why, but Bergamo, a town in the Lombardy region of northern Italy, has given its name to high-quality spiral-bound notebooks. They’re popular as journals or travel notebooks, and this one has (100) ivory pages lined on both sides. Also has a plain “soft-touch” cover (think suede-like). In a dark maroon/chocolate color. Measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Jot down your thoughts and musings (you know you’ve got some good ones) or they might be gone forever.

Light Up Your Ink

These light-up pens are one of the coolest things we’ve come across in a long time, but then again, look who’s saying that—a copywriter. But really, they’re hard not to love. Pull off the metal cap, put it on the other end and bam, the ballpoint is suddenly illuminated by tiny LEDs for all the midnight scribbling you can do! Pen measures 5” tip to tip, is all metallic, and feels nice in the hand. Body is silver and cap, with a silver pocket clip, is either silver, black, white or red. Back end of the pen has a stylus, too. “It was a dark and stormy night…but really it wasn’t that dark because of this pen….”

ALNICO CYLINDER MAGNET

Rock The Poles!

We just want to celebrate…this magnet. (Classic rock fans, you’re welcome for the references.) This Alnico cylinder magnet measures 9/16" x 11/16" with a 5/16" x 3/8" slotted hole (we think that’s what it’s called) in the center. It’s a strong bugger at 10 lbs lifting power in the ends, and very shiny silver. Hole makes it great for attaching string to it and retrieving keys lost down the sewer or well. You know, when you lose your keys that way. Made in the USA. You’ll get (1) hyper strong magnet per order.

Has a big hangonability quotient, which the manufacturer claims is 15 lbs of pull, meaning it's probably closer to 13 lbs. Impressive either way for such a cute little magnet.
