Ideas for your “Ruggedly Handsome” one…

At tartooful we’re in the calm before the proverbial storm… these quiet rainy days at the shop are abuzz with “behind the scenes” activity, as we finalize our orders for new stock, craft window designs and plan our next big event.  The first shipments of fresh stock are already arriving…

We’ve begun to create magic in the shop -just for in time for shoppers who are nervously looking over their loooong holiday lists.  Over the next week or so we are expecting boxfuls of brilliant solutions for all the most challenging people on your list.  New goodies for kids, pampering body treats, sparkling jewelry designs, and so much more is on the way!

…But we know who the really tricky person is on your list… and for *Him* we have a few brilliant ideas.

The Timo glass will please even the most discerning design-phile.  Created by the legendary Timo Sarpaneva, this is quite simply one perfect glass.  Made out of tough-as-nails borosilicate glass it may be used for everything – both hot and cold – from coffee to beer, wine, water or icecream.  It’s satisfyingly comfortable, smooth and substantial in the hand, and it stays glossy and clear even after years of use.  It holds more than meets the eye, as well:  a whole beer or pop will fit in one easy pour.  Glassware may not be the first thing that springs to mind for your significant other, but truly, Guys love the Timo.  The Timo is en route to Tartooful once again – phone in to reserve yours in advance, as these will sell out quickly.

Fresh pieces by local design geniuses, RedFlag are now in stock.  My better half loves his new RedFlag Shave Kit.  More than just a pretty face, it cleverly expands as it is filled, to take up only as much space as the items you pack.  He wouldn’t think of traveling with anything but their egg-shaped duffels which are capacious yet compact and may be carried over the shoulder, in the hand or even as a backpack.  Don’t miss RedFlag’s ruggedly handsome key hanks which feature pieces of vintage boat hardware, beautifully pickled and buffed to a sueded, pink gold finish.

Lego Architecture has proven to be a huge hit with the picky Dudes in the crowd… so many engineers, designers, architects and construction professionals come in and drool over this Lego series!  Think of it as a model kit, or a three dimensional puzzle for grownups. We’re expecting a big, beautiful shipment of Lego any moment…

We have so many other ideas in store, and so many other goodies we can’t wait to share with you… stay tuned for ideas for little ones, and the ladies in your life!
