GIVEAWAY: Poketo

Assuming you’re old enough to remember shopping malls, do you remember the little Asian store that every mall had? You know, the one that sold every part of the Hello Kitty / Pokemon / Anime empire. Poketo is like that except without all the kitschy shit you’ll never use. Wallets, watches, cameras, t-shirts, and wall decals from international artists with awesome ideas. There really is something for everyone.

Poketo may very well be giving away the farm on this one because they sent us 4 wallets, a t-shirt, and some wall decals to give away to four lucky readers. One Grand Prize Winner (cue the band) is getting a wallet, the t-shirt, and the decals. Three slightly less grand prize winners are each getting a wallet.

THE GIVEAWAY

You don’t even have to come on down, all you have to do is leave a comment below telling us the weirdest thing you keep in your wallet.

We’ll pick a winner 9/3. Good Luck.

Contest Closed! Congrats to:

Carl – Wallet
Anne Banks – Wallet
Bobbi Fowler – Wallet
Rob Weiner – Wallet + T Shirt + Wall Decals

Thanks for participating.

    I was admitted to the hospital for 6 days some time ago. Early on in my admission process, I needed an MRI to confirm or deny the presence of blood on my brain. I had a right cartilage piercing and I had recently pierced my left with an industrial piercing- a bar that goes from one part of the cartilage to the other. Taking out that sonofabitch when it was just starting to heal REALLY sucked.

    I keep my bloody facial piercings stuck between two layers of medical tape in the wallet I carry with me every day. I haven’t looked at them since I had to yank them out- but it’s a damn good reminder as to why I hope to never have a meningitis scare again.

    The weirdest thing in my wallet is kinda sweet too. I have the paper ring from a Gurkha cigar. My husband showed it to me just before he deployed the first time, so I would know what kind to send him down range. That was almost 3 yrs ago now, and he is currently deployed again, but I no longer need the ring to remember what to buy him. It has been switched over to many wallets, and I don’t know why, other than it makes me smile when I happen across it.

    My grandma collects the state quarters and asked me, several years ago, to find her a certain amount of those she still needed to complete the set. I made a list and folded it up and put it in my wallet. It’s been in there for about 3 years; I’m almost done!

  • Jennifer

    The weirdest thing I keep in my wallet is a drawing of a snail my friend made for me using highlighters. She made it when I moved to a different city for university 5 years ago and even though we don’t talk anymore, I won’t throw it out.

    Weirdest thing in my wallet…

    A random ATM receipt I found that showed a checking account balance of over $40,000. I ‘mistakenly’ take it out when I’m talking to a girl at a bar.

    I have a business card that I got from an FBI agent that I met at a race track. Whenever I’ve ever got in a situation, I flash the card quickly and hope they don’t notice that there is no way im in the FBI. Its actually saved my butt a few times in bad situations.

  • Jennifer Rutsky

    Weirdest thing in my wallet is a membership card to Chamamo, a cat cafe in Harajuku (Japan). You pay the equivalent of like $5 for 30 minutes to play with cats except they mostly hide and sleep – disappointing.

    …a note SUPER-GLUED around my credit card that says “Do NOT wipe me if your broke.” and a three-leaf clover. I figured since I’m highly impatient with trying to find a four-leaf. I’ll take my chances with 3/4 of a luck. [;

  • john

  • Henry Lum

    LOL.
    My weirdest thing? I keep a toe nail clipper in my wallet. I don’t have your average wallet though – just wanted to add some info so you guys won’t think I’m crazy or weird.

    I keep a coin with St. Joan of Arc in my wallet. It actually has a prayer on the back asking for courage and strength! I bought it at Carmel-by-the-sea last year and have never taken it out of my wallet since then :)

  • Lucky’s Luna

    The weirdest thing I keep in my wallet would be a picture of a wallet, it came with the wallet, its Japanese wallet and I thought it was so funny so I kept it.
