Wood-Inlay Map of Quebec in San Francisco, California
The folks at Woodcut Maps do some amazing work with wood. The map of Quebec ($200), which measures 5″x16″, caught our eye because the description states, “Also known (by us!) as the ‘eye of sauron.’ The perfect gift for your favorite LotR fan!” Woodcut Maps also has smaller, more space-saving wood-inlays, like these coasters ($60), and this map of Prospect Park ($200).

Backpack in Park Slope, Brooklyn
How can you resist a backpack ($150) that’s made of recycled, repurposed material, and looks as awesome as this one? Easy, you can’t. We love Vaya Bags because they give us so many options and they even do custom jobs. What more can you ask of a bag company? If you’re not on the market for a backpack, try the standard messenger bag ($140) or this new little addition ($32).

Necklace in Carthage, Texas
Upon first glance you might think that necklace ($10) is actually made of chocolate. LadyK has quite a few necklaces in her corner. It was so nice to find out that some of them are made by her daughter, a young lady who seems to be just as excited about crafting as we are. You gotta start them off young. Here are a few of our favorite necklaces: The Ring of Fire ($10), and The Book Page, which you can have by making an offer!
