Squee! These adorable little Pink Pig Socks by Foot Traffic were spotted by me at NYNow summer marketplace. Perfect for keeping all of your little piggies warm and cozy,
How cute is this little felted Taco with a Mustache tree ornament? Answer: so darn cute. Let us make him the official Worleygig mascot of Taco Tuesday, shall we? Sure, why not. This festive little guy was spotted by me a few weeks back at NY Now summer marketplace in the booth for Ornaments 4 Orphans, a for-profit, fair trade social enterprise dedicated to providing critical support for orphans and vulnerable children in Africa. They use ethical and sustainable business practices, create jobs, fight poverty, preserve intact families, empower communities, and ultimately prevent children from becoming orphans. You can browse their huge selection of beautiful, hand-crafted ornaments, and do a bit of early holiday shopping for a good cause, at This Link!
NY Now Summer Market made an impressive comeback at Javits Center this week and I was there to document the radness which will be shared with you in many upcoming posts on The ‘Gig. First off, let’s get a little Shark Attack fix, shall we?
When I was a kid, household appliances were not designed to also be cute, just because they were meant to be used by children. Specifically, I recall a humidifier that we had to have in the bedroom I shared with my brother when we were probably 3 and 4 years old respectively, because he suffered from asthma. That thing looked like a spacecraft from War of The Worlds — and while it might have relievedmy brother’s breathing difficulties, it was pure nightmare-fuel for me.
If only Crane humidifiers had existed in the sixties, my parent’s might have been inclined to purchase a model from their Adorable line — featuring, well, adorable animal-shaped, multi-function humidifiers — thus sparing my tender psyche from an enduring trauma. Because, seriously, how darn cute is a little pink Unicorn?
This adorable little needle-felted wool Shark is by Wool Buddies, and was spotted at Leroy’s Place in Brooklyn. Shark Attack on the shelf!
TJ Maxx delivers again with the accidental discovery of this awesome Valentines Day card that opens to feature a bunch of cute sharks popping out at you! Squee!
I realize that all TJ Maxx stores do not necessarily have the same merchandise, but the card is super cute and pretty cheap ($3.99) for a pop-up card of this quality, so maybe make a run to your neighborhood location and see if you can get lucky.
Shark Attack in your Mailbox!
How cute are these little guys? If you are familiar with the Pokemon species, then you know this round, pink creature is called a Jigglypuff. This past summer, Jigglypuff was available to win as a prize at various carnival games found at Coney Island’s Luna Park. This plush toy is about the size of basketball.
