Great Gift Idea #3

For your someone special, we have some ideas.

Great Gift Idea(s) #3


The 'I'm-nuts-about-you' Keyring
At Uncommon Goods
I would love this (a not so subtle hint people!)

Phillips Head Screw Cufflinks
Classy yet edgy, also at Uncommon Goods

*Although we'd like to mention that the men in our office also dig this keyring, and we know a lot of women these days who wear beautiful shirts that require cufflinks, so maybe mix things up and give hers to a him or his to her - that would also work.

Great Gift Idea #2

We got one and it was one of the best gifts we've ever received.

Great Gift Idea #2


 Wing nuts, castle nuts, hex bolts - a chess set made out of fasteners - some people are so creative.
The one above is ours but below we'll show you where you can get one too.

So for that special chess Grandmaster in your life, who also loves hardware, here they are:

I think the other side is black - it's at Etsy
This one is really impressive.
Find it at Jazz It Up
Found it on Hello Antique by Laura Palmer

OR, if you want a lighter game, go for CHECKERS!

This is great! And also at Esty

I think I'm going to have to try and make one of these one day.

Great Gift Idea #1

With the holidays here we thought we would start posting cool products that we think would make great gift ideas.

Here is Great Gift Idea #1

Bolt & Screw Salt & Pepper Shakers

A Hex head and a Flat head - one for salt and one for pepper.

Not only do they look cool but you can't get anything out of them unless you bend them.
(As if salt-&-peppering wasn't fun enough!)
Then they return to their original form - so cool.

Here is the link where to buy them:

Fasteners & Festivities

It's December! It's time to start decorating, and we want to help.
Of course we're still keeping it all about fasteners.

Many of you start with a tree - how's this one? It's held together with threaded rod and nuts!
Lowe's teaches you how to make it.
Here's the link: Lowe's

Or, if you go with a real tree, you will need ornaments - how about these? Heidi Borchers made them out of spare fasteners and we think they're pretty adorable.
You can see how to make them at
Lots of great ways to incorporate fasteners into the festivities!
