THE GOLDEN GIRLS COFFEE MUG
NEW

Coffee With The Girls

You a fan of Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia? We thought so. Even folks not on a first-name basis with the characters of the classic ’80s-’90s TV show “The Golden Girls” can appreciate this white ceramic 12-oz mug adorned with line drawings of the girls themselves. Under their faces, “The Golden Girls” is written in pink. We don’t want to call this a collector’s item yet, but you know, give it some time. Limited edition, from Loot Crate™. Hand-wash it, don’t soak it, keep it out of the microwave and this mug might be with you well into your own golden years.

Break Your Own Geodes

Pop one of these roughly 1-1/4" dia stones into the toe of a sock, smash it with a hammer, and be the first person ever to see your real-as-Nature-makes-it geode!! Ninety percent of them have the familiar beautiful white crystals inside. Formed by volcanic action, they are found all over the world, but ours are from Mexico. There is no way to tell from the outside if they have crystal centers, but we will send you two just to raise your odds, and we haven't had a dud yet in our stores!! Much much more fun and satisfaction than buying one already cracked.

The Purr-fect Tissue Dispenser

Cat lovers know litter boxes, but now, through the magic of modern design, we can all pull tissues straight out of a cat’s butt. Don’t act like you’re offended. Our Cat Butt Tissue Dispenser is a 5-1/2” cube (which fits a small cube tissue box) in super-classy golden yellow fuzz-fur with a cat’s head on one end and a raised tail on the other. Ironically, though, it’s you taking care of business every time you pull a tissue from that poop portal. Kitty’s gold and white face has whiskers and surprisingly realistic eyes. Lucky for you, they face forward so you don’t have to look at them while you’re ripping a tissue from that innocent little cat’s butt. The whole thing is 10” long overall, and if you can find brown tissue to hang out the back, we salute you. You think pulling tissues from a cat’s butt is gross? Wipe the boogers and snot off your face and then we’ll talk.
