Our Very First Robe!

This plush, ridiculously soft, polyester, faux fur robe works great straight out of the shower or in a ’70s lounge with your best platform heels. Unisex, like all great purple robes with two-tone brown collars and cuffs that look vaguely big cat-ish. Marked 3X, but we think it’s closer to L or XL. Marked 22W-24W and measures 55” long. Put it on and you’ll instantly feel like a character in an old episode of Baretta. Priced at the very odd $22.73, but since it’s our first robe, complete with a classic belt tie, we’re happy to cut you a deal.

SURPRISE!!

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!! Mystery boxes of stuff like what you see in the catalog. Maybe we had a little left but not enough to continue the listing. Maybe we only got a few as part of an odd lot. Maybe we lost some, and just found them in the warehouse. You will get items which originally listed for at least $25.00 total in our catalog (or would have, if we had enough). You pick. The “electro-mechanical” box has things like motors, switches, hardware and components that are useful parts but want to be worked into something bigger. The “consumer” box has more ready-to-go type items, and things that don’t have as technical a flavor, like bottles, toys, books, and giant rubber bands. The fun is in the mystery and surprise. Perfect if you don’t know what to give Aunt Maude and Uncle Ned, or if you can’t decide how to bring your order up to the minimum. Every couple of months the contents will keep changing, so even if you have gotten a box before, feel free to order again! (Please note: Ordering multiple boxes at the same time will result in duplicate items.)
