HOME/GARDEN

Shine A Brighter Light

Turn your garage into Rick’s Cafe in Casablanca with this easy-to-install adjustable three-arm ceiling/task light that shines a stunning 6,000 lumens into garages, workshops, closets and storerooms. A total of (144) cool-white SMD LEDs—(48) in each of the arms—swivel 90 degrees to illuminate corners, crannies and projects. Screws into standard light sockets and requires no tools or wiring. Measures 11” x 3-3/4”, has an estimated 50,000-hour lifetime. ETL Certified. Better hurry—the AS&S staff are throwing away their regular light bulbs and buying these up like lobster tacos. As a bonus, it looks like a ceiling fan in a place like Rick’s Cafe Americain. If we can’t have Paris, at least we’ll always have surplus.

We sold out twice but the lights are now back in stock! Get yours today.

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF STORAGE

Pack more vacuous, because vacuum packing isn't just for coffee, it's for saving storage space for anything soft and squooshable. We suggest this incredible 6-piece variety pack of vacuum-seal storage bags, into which you can stuff pillows and blankets and sweaters and overcoats and stuffed monkeys and any number of other things, then suck out all the air with the enclosed hand pump and watch it shrink by 80% so you can slide it under your bed and forget about it for mold and moth-free years. (OK, it's not a pump, because it sucks, so call it a handy little sucker.) You get 2 small bags 24" x 16", 2 medium bags 28" x 20" and 2 jumbo bags 32" x 24". Also dandy for travel because the little sucker doesn't take up much space, so you can shrink your return laundry too--and keep it hermetically sealed. For faster sucking, use a vacuum cleaner!

The ground is hard and wet, and you’re usually soft and dry, so next time you’re in the woods, try this nylon parachute-cloth camping hammock.

Folds into an attached pouch and is rated for up to 275 lbs. We’ll pick one in black or camo for you.
