This edition of Weekend Market is about a topic I am absolutely not obsessed with at all: cats! Wheeee! Wheeeeeeeee! Ahem. Let’s take a closer look at this week’s picks. Right: Shana Maker’s cat paw pencil top will come in handy the next time George tries to chew up my notebook while I’m writing in it. All I need to do is whip it out and tap him softly on the top of his giant wedge-shaped head! Heh heh heh. Above left: Sometimes when I’m innocently following yoga videos in my living room, George sits and stares at me disapprovingly like I’m doing it all wrong. Well, I guess cats are yoga masters, as Yuhsuan Huang’s adorable Lady Yoga Cat postcard series illustrates. Middle left: Toutan’s kitty pendant is sleek and elegant, just like cats are when they aren’t going crazy. Bottom left: Tuzhui Lixiaoyi has an entire Pinkoi store filled with handmade cat stamps!
Left: See how far you can stack up kitties with Comma’s game, which is so much more humane and less dangerous than doing it with real cats. Above right: Wear Ms. Children’s Toys’ felt brooch to add a pop of whimsy to a basic black jacket. Middle right: Metal Pharmacy’s ring earns a round of a-paws from George and me. Bottom right: Duo’s milk carton-inspired cat box is made from durable coated cardboard and comes with stickers so you can customize your little fur-buddy’s hidey-hole. Hmmm… might this be Boxy’s successor? All of these items are listed on Pinkoi, which now has an English front page and a handy Chinese-to-English translation tool on each listing. If you need help ordering, contact Pinkoi’s friendly staffers at service AT pinkoi DOT com. And remember… use this blog’s coupon code @thankyoufromGeorge for five percent off your purchase! I hope the rest of your weekend is just purr-fect.
