Doane Paper sent me a few of these awesome little notepads. These are a great alternative to Field Notes not only because of the price point and the excellent illustration by Jon Contino, but because it mixes both standard line for writing with the grid lines for designing or drawing. Another unique item that was added was this Horween Leather Utility Notepad Cover, which can also be purchased through the store. The notepads tend to wear down fast going in and out of your pocket but this case keep the notepad crisp. The case was handmade here in america and made exclusively for Doane Paper.

Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots for Leffot for GlobalGiving Charity
“Wolverine 1000 Mile and New York’s Leffot have teamed up to auction off a pair of their collaborative Wolverine 721 LTD Boots. The auction proceeds benefit the GlobalGiving project helping orphans in Japan rebuild after the tragic tsunami this past March 2011. The boot is based on an archival pattern from the Wolverine collection and is made from Horween shell cordovan leather. 1,000, hand-numbered pairs are being produced; the auction is for #0001.”
That Horween stamp was perfect on this MAKR wallet. If i was ever so lucky to get one like this.
