We’re all about the latest and greatest, but sometimes it’s fun to look back at the vintage stuff that started at all. Angry Birds might occupy every moment we spend ruling from the throne, but it will never be Risk or Clue. Tim Liddy understands the nostalgia high we get from everything vintage, so he set about recreating from GI Joe Operation: Southbeach (yes, that was actually a game from someone’s childhood) to Clue in all their vintage, discovered-at-a-yard-sale glory. Except, instead of actually making the games themselves, he uses oil paints and enamel to make paintings you can hang on your wall. Each piece is unique, pretty freaking expensive and painted on copper. We know what you’re thinking and yes, we want them all too.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
