When I was a kid, my mom always got the Lillian Vernon catalog. Because that was a million years ago, it was an actual paper catalog, and I used to peruse all the weird toys and products, begging my mom to buy me yet another sticker book, or a colored pencil set. While I’m not sure that the paper catalog still exists, you can find the wacky world of Lillian Vernon online, chock full of bizarre things you didn’t know you needed, and probably don’t.

If you decide to wear that, do you really have any right to be annoyed with people for talking at the girls? [$105, Shakuhachi, Pixie Market] Keep reading »
If I were in the business of selling pillows that mold, adjust, and even “breathe” in tune with the person cuddling them, I think I would go for an upbeat message. “Having a pillow that is practically lifelike in its response is awesome and neato!
