A couple years ago I wrote about some of the cute/weird/unnecessary things that you could buy from Skymall, the magazine you find on airplanes. They also have a website. I decided to take a quick look-see at what is available now. Make sure you click on the pics to get full size.
Corner shelves $30 each set -
I really liked the idea of these things. I thought they looked very attractive. What is shown here are two sets. The reviews weren’t that great, though. Very cheaply made, pieces missing or not lining up properly. Better to make them yourself out of real wood.
Faux ivy privacy screens $40 - $90 per panel -
Again, I really liked the idea of this, but the reviews were iffy. You get a net with fake ivy attached that you stretch out on your fence and attach. Choice of 3 different kinds of ivy. Looks better than slats, I think. Something that could probably be done yourself, but I would imagine only lasts one season.
Fun Flusher Decorative Handles $20 each -
How fun is this??? I love it! Looks metallic, but is cheap plastic. *tsk* *tsk* *tsk*
Touchless Sensor Toilet Seats $160 -
This could very well save a marriage! Approach, and the lid rises. Wave your hand and the seat rises. Step away when you’re done and it all AUTOMATICALLY CLOSES!! No more middle-ot-the-night trips ending up IN the toilet, ladies!! Let us rejoice! Only one review on this, and it was positive. Probably because no one else would admit to spending $160 on this…
Mixed-Breed Dog DNA Test Kit $75 -
Wanna know just what your mutt is made of? This kit will tell you! Or not. VERY mixed reviews on this one. Just call him Sparky and be done with it. Or Princess if she’s a girl.
