Maybe you’re bored with your Crate & Barrel barware set you received as a wedding gift. It might just be time to upgrade to something with more character and way more history. Sotheby’s is auctioning off truly rare barware curated by Alan Bedwell, the founder of vintage accessories gallery Foundwell, as part of their Prohibition in America | 100 Years celebration. Some of the vintage pieces blatantly thumb their noses at the law, while others keep booze locked up or were designed to hide their true contents (flask binoculars with drinking cup eye lenses, for example). The auction items should appeal to fans of history, lovers of collectible barware, or to those who are just looking for unique ways to enjoy their stash.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
