Make your own custom clock in a tick with this quartz movement. It's in a 2-3/16" square x 5/8" thick black-plastic case with a built-in hook for hanging it. Comes with minimalistic hour, minute and second hands, the latter (2) of which will extend out 2" from the clock's center. You supply (1) "AA" battery and the clock face.
In the traditional arch-top piratical shape, this mini-chest measures 4-3/4” long x 3” tall x 2-3/8” deep with a hinged top and a little gold-tone clasp in front. In sanded but unfinished pine, ready to decorate. Handy for small presents (gift cards sit up nicely inside), cleverly and classily displaying business cards, storing jewels or interring gerbils.
Our each is a pound of modeling clay, ready for pounding into shape and re-pounding, since it’s non-hardening, which means the fun never stops. You’ll get a quarter-pound each of bright red, blue, green and yellow clay in 5-1/4" x 1-1/8" x 3/4" sticks, but feel free to mix ’em up to make new colors. Non-toxic and gluten-free, seriously.
We saw articulated, foot-tall wooden artists' mannequins just like these in a Paris gallery window last year, with all their little articulated parts painted in different high-gloss colors. Very harlequinesque, and many, many Euros. Our 12" mannequins are in unfinished wood, but if you've got paint you could get all avant rive-gauche and paint your own. Not that sensitive? Paint your local NFL uniforms on 'em. In a pinch, you could use them as intended, as artist's models, but where's the fun in that?
Or at least put some cork on it with this 4-pack of 6” square x 3/16” thick natural cork tiles, which we can prove on account of they’re from Portugal where they peel the cork right off the trees. Color is, yes, natural, which is a medium/light brown. Each pack covers a square foot, so just figure out how many square feet of walls are in your bedroom, office or wine cellar and order from there.
Very popular with elementary school teachers, these hardcover blank books let students create their own storybooks. (Middle-schoolers interviewing and making books for primary grade kids is a popular and civilizing project.) Also great for sketching, journaling or scrapbooking. Pure white blank covers with (14) sheets (28 pages) of 80-lb blank paper inside with a sewn-in binding. You pick the 6” x 8” books or the 8-1/2” x 11” versions.
Made for your home darkroom, but loaded with dozens of uses for you creative types, this is a set of (5) 3/4" alligator clips, each on a 2" length of fine steel cable and strung on another 12" cable. Mount the 12" length, using the small ring or the removable 1-5/8" suction cup at each end. Hang pix to dry, multiple phone messages on a glass door, holiday/birthday cards on a mirror, freshly washed socks on a motel bathroom wall. Or buy several and accessorize any room in the house. It's a look that will drive that Crockery Barn bunch crazy with envy.
Craft wire in a dozen lively colors: red, pink, burgundy, teal, medium blue, navy blue, violet, forest green, black, silver, copper and brass. You get (9) feet of each, all in 26-gauge. Jewelers, scrapbookers and crafters in general love this stuff. You think black isn't a lively color? It's what they use to make jewelry for merry widows!
This plain white muslin doll is 13" tall, with 8” of skinny legs. Wires inside the stuffed arms and legs make him easily posable. Him? Well, it looks himish, but it’s naked and decidedly gender-free. It also looks like there’s an Edward Gorey character trying to get out, but that’s just our impression. A bunch of these painted in dancing costumes, or as frogs, or acrobats, on a mantel would make a mighty pretty scene, we think.
