Its fun how one discover something new to obsess upon. It was Mico who introduced me to this vintage trade signs. I soooo love them. I got my first 1960’s authentic trade sign the other day. It is a Robin Hood Hair Pomode I immediately displayed it at the store for others to enjoy too.. If someone gives me a cool offer… maybe I’ll sell it… maybe….

Another cool thing I found today… a vintage fire extinguisher. Cool ha.

Smartwrap is easy to use and is designed for cords of ipods ,mini ipods, most Mp3 players and the standard walkman. We do not recommend using the smartwrap for USB and telephone cables for the fastener is not designed for them. We have the syncwrap which caters for these larger cables.

I consider this as one of the best invention for music lover like me. Organizes, manages and prolong the life of your earphone cord… Get one now.

teapot tassle

No, your eyes are not playing cruel tricks with you! This particular tassel does indeed feature a petite little crystal teapot, attached to lovely Earth-toned Chinese silk cording with macrame accents.
Allright then, on to what the teapot actually represents in Feng Shui! In Chinese culture, when one moves into a new home, office or business area, it is a standard and traditional procedure to get a kettle boiling with water within the new place. This is because the Chinese believe that it is good luck – the Yang-natured steam rising from the spout is able to welcome the arrival of Wealth and prosperity to a new surrounding.
The Chinese will also go a step further, and add dates, ginger slices and spring onion to the simmering water. It is said that these herbs are able to maximize the Wealth and prosperity luck.
For those of you who are keen to have an auspicious start in new businesses, educations or other kinds of endeavors, The Auspicious Beginnings Tassel is perfect for you. To enjoy the Wealth & prosperity luck without the hassle of hauling out your old kettle, place this item close to you when you are conducting your new endeavor!
This charming, very Asian tassel is also perfect as housewarming gifts.
