Crank Clothesline

We'll frankly admit that we have no intention of using this adorably vintage-looking Crank Clothesline ($13) to actually dry clothes.

Eye-Vac Electric Dustpan Vacuum

We all know what the worst part about sweeping is: bending over to maneuver that dustpan. We try to brush our dust into that bent piece of plastic, and half the crap we were trying to get off the floor just scoots underneath it. And... [More]

We love Big Sur. Ever since that one post-college road trip through its unspoiled mountain-meets-beach paradise landscape, we've been wishing we could find ourselves a hidden wilderness cabin there to grow dreadlocks and do some watercolor painting.

It's more of a look-pretty-hanging-off-of-the-oven-door-handle-but-never-get-messy kind of towel. All the same, we'd be fine with... [More]

We hate the ironing board. Somehow the prospect of pulling it out of the closet and unfolding it feels like an effort equivalent to climbing a mountain or discovering cold fusion. We'd rather just look like we slept in our clothes. This Quilted Ironing Mat... [More]
