I've decided after getting the suggestion from a couple of you that I'm going to join the "buy through me!" club. I'm affiliated only with products that I love and use every day (well, to be honest, I might not actually vacuum every day--but I definitely think about it every day). If you click on these links and buy through me, I'll get a small commission, and the price will remain the same for you. Click on the name of the company, and the link will take you right to where you need to go.
I bought a pair of Z-Trail sandals from Xero Shoes when I got one of those perfectly targeted Instagram ads. I love them! These are not cushioned sandals. You can feel the ground under your feet. To me, it feels so good! And my feet, which always used to hurt, every day, as a matter of course, have almost stopped hurting. I bought myself sneakers and love them, too. Then I bought Kevin a pair of sneakers, and he liked them so much that he now has two pairs. He says that his toes have room. And a friend of mine who is picky about shoes loves hers. I decided that since two other people who are also picky about shoes like them, that I could be brave enough to be an affiliate. I don't know if you'll like them too, but they might be worth a try! Someday I might actually start running (I've thought that for years, so don't get too excited), and if I do, I have my sneakers ready to go. But if I don't ever run, they're super cute, and they feel good, so that's enough for me.
Amazon Stuff Of course you can get anything at Amazon, but here are a few things I've gotten that I love. Click on the picture to look at the item or to order it.
First up, my Rifle Paper phone case for the iPhone 11. It's ALMOST as pretty as the Rifle Paper fabric I carry in the store:
These are my favorite pens. They have a nice, fine tip, but write very smoothly:
This phone holder sticks onto your dashboard, so if you don't want that, you might want a different type. But I have to say that it's my favorite holder ever. I have a black dashboard, so it blends in and I don't mind it a bit!
I got this strip light for my sewing machine. Brightens it up nicely!
For small felting jobs when you're knitting (think coasters, small vases, or small bags), this wash basin is terrific!
I've given this flashlight as gifts, and everyone has been delighted. (Okay, they giftees are all guys, I admit.) It's bright and it's magnetic. I do have one in the shop as well, and I use it!
Everyone always wants to know what that "thing" is hanging on the wall behind my sewing machine. It's this Dyson stick vacuum cleaner. I've had it for 5 years, and it's still going strong. I love it. I've used so many other kinds of vacuum cleaners at the shop, but this is by far the best. This link takes you to the one I got. If you're interested in another model instead, let me know, and I'll link it before you get it. This one is one of the least expensive of them, and it's simply terrific.
