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.

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.

Hours are denoted by colored rhinestones on the case, and they fashionably match each member of the quintet.

Snip, Snip, No Stick

Hydroponic scissors. Yeah, a first for us, too, but these Titanium-bonded, non-stick, precision-ground scissors are corrosion- and adhesion-resistant, with soft, flexible handles. Short, 1-3/4” long blades, like bonsai folks use, except these are made for people who grow Boston bibb lettuce without dirt. Paul the buyer assures us, however, that these scissors won't know or care if you use them to open bags of nacho chips.

Honey, I Shrunk The Cow

Old MacDonald had a very odd farm. And you can too, with this farmload of (10) baby animals, including a calf, rabbit, piglet, baby chick, duckling, lamb, kid (that's a baby goat, kids), kitten and beagle puppy. All are plastic and approx 1-1/2” long x 1” to 1-1/2” tall, which makes for a scale that's a tad whimsical, with the little chick standing taller than the piglet and the rabbit appearing to outweigh the lamb by a factor of five or six. They're all as cute as the dickens, though.
