Who Are you Looking At? (Photo By Gail)

Oh my, look at these cute little guys. Created by Eric Althin of Sad Salesman, the Nervous Pigs made their debut (in a limited edition series of 10)  at this year’s Five Points Festival, and I am sure they sold out immediately. Each one has a slightly different expression of earnest wariness as they sit on your shelf, or any surface with an edge that their little legs can dangle over. Follow Sad Salesman on Instagram for more of his adorable designer toys!

Pink Thing Of The Day: Party Pig!

This small toy figure of a Pig in a Pink Party Hat and matching festive outfit (or simply, Party Pig, as I enjoy calling him) was gifted to me by a friend on my most recent birthday. Currently, he hangs out in my living room near the stereo. A little Googling reveals that he is part of a 5-piece set of animal mini figures  called Party Farm from  Bullseye’s Playground. The set was originally sold by Target in November of 2021 and is now (understandably) sold out, but you can still find it for sale on eBay and other similar sites.

Going shopping in your closet: it is a thing. I have not had to buy a gift for anyone since the beginning of Covid life since I keep finding new shit I forgot I owned hiding inside bags in my closet. Just being serious.

Case in point: I was looking for something to re-gift for a friend’s upcoming Birthday when I discovered these awesome Flying Pig String Lights hiding at the bottom of a bag of old tights, of all places. I have a vague memory of receiving them from my sister for Christmas several years ago, and I can guess that the only reason they were not put up in the Chickpad immediately is that I already had a set of Pig String Lights (recently retired to storage) hanging over the exact book shelf where these now reside.

I love these little guys.

Can you look at these Pig Juggling Balls without breaking into a huge smile? I dare you.  The box declares that “Pigs Will Fly” — but I bet that depends on how skilled of a juggler you are! Manufactured by Ridley’s, you can buy these Happy Pigs at Wild & Wolf!
