oink if you’re merry: a fat pig giveaway

I know a few elves. I told them you were good and I skipped the part about how you ate the last cookie and repeatedly squeezed that Christmas gift someone sent you early.

Oh wait…that was me. Total gift squeezer. Snooper. Shaker of gifts. Eater of the last cookie. Now you know.

Please meet my friends at Noble Goods: Christopher and Molly. Christopher is a super cool sculptor. He marries resin with wood into sleek, touchable furniture and modern objects in his Brooklyn studio. You can meet Christopher and his lovely wife, Molly, at the Brooklyn Craft Central Holiday Fair this Saturday, December 17th, from noon to 6pm. They’ll be introducing Christopher’s debut collection of handmade lazy susans, cheese boards, coasters and ornaments. I covet these lazy susans…big time!

Noble Goods has given me one of their handmade ornaments to give away to one oinking reader. The inset snowflake is red-tinted resin which glows when light comes through it. How merry is that? Very. This ornament is modern, joyful and totally touchable. All Noble Goods are smooth operators; you can run your hand over the surface of your Noble Good and you won’t feel a seam where the resin and wood meet. Craftsmanship rules, boss.

But wait…there’s more! I wouldn’t give you an unwrapped gift. Not when I know Ali of Alistar. Ali is a fabric maverick. She’s even put her skills to work on elaborate costumes for The National Ballet of Canada. Righteous, eh? Now Ali has launched her own line of products and her own company: Alistar. Her Evergive bags are eco-conscious, reusable gift bags sewn from funky African fabrics. They come in various, useful sizes. My favorite Evergive bags are the wine bottle bags; perfect for a hostess gift. Wine not included. Alistar also offers Tiptoe rugs handcrafted from thick, sumptuous, industrial felt. Click here to go to Alistar’s etsy shop.

Ali gave me an Evergive bag that perfectly fits the shimmery Noble goods ornament; the fabric even has gold bursts that mirror the ornament’s snowflake motif. Kismet achieved!

Please include an e-mail address so I can get in touch with you. One lucky oinker will receive some holiday love (excellent Noble Goods ornament and Evergive bag) from Noble Goods, Alistar and the fat pig in the market. Please oink by December 20th, 11pm PST.

Happy holidays!
