Every day I use the same coffee mug; a freebie from the local cable company. I think it’s time I finally step it up, and get one of these Hasami Porcelain Mugs. Made in Nagasaki, Japan, an area that’s been churning out world class pottery for over 400 years, the mugs are minimal, beautiful, and that big 15 oz. version sooo suits my zen right now, since I need at least that just to get from breakfast to lunch. They also make a 13 oz. and an 11 oz. too, in case you’re not as coffee-dependent as I am. Get ’em all at Notre Shop.

So I was obviously intrigued by Broke Bikes, a new company that’s offering high quality fixed gear bicycles that are custom made to order in Belgium for a mere $450 (plus free shipping to the US).
