As we made our way through the various rooms at The New York Audio and AV Show (you can read about it here), we were struck by a common theme: We can’t afford any of this. Don’t get us wrong, the stuff was amazing, but it left us wishing we had a wallet bursting with bills and not random business cards. Oddly enough, one of our favorite pairs of speakers at the show happened to be one of the few pairs we wouldn’t have to take on another job (or six) to purchase. The Yorkie speakers from Well Rounded Sound are crafted from premium, eco-friendly materials here in the US and look great with or without a wool felt cover. Don’t let the adorable puppy name stop you from picking up a pair.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
