This wonderful, local tea shop is offering customers some great gifts to celebrate their birthday!

From Remedy Teas:

“TNT Detox” is a tonic we developed that people love around here. We designed it as a ‘detox’ blood and liver cleanser and folks dig it for relieving a cold, a hangover helper, daily fire breathing, flu fighter or just to add some heat when the weather gets chilly or damp. Our TNT is intense, spicy and a little sweet brewed daily from organic ginger, chili, turmeric with lemon and honey. It hurts so good.
We are Capitol Hills only true tea shop. We do all organic and loose leaf only featuring over 150 teas from all over the world. We source and blend loose leaf teas. We’re honored to be so many Seattlites go-to spot for loose leaf teas.  Any customers that buy loose leaf tea on Nov. 6 can pick up a free bag of tea from our grab-bag of packaged bags of loose leaf!
Our online customers who order on November 6 will also get a free bag of loose leaf with their order. We serve people all over the country and abroad from our tea haven in Seattle. We’ve filled tea for tea fiends in practically every state in the U.S. and right here in the Northwest, Internationally, even to soldiers in Iraq. We are proud to represent Seattle, doing tea our way.

Shop Seattle: Three by Three Bamboo Dry Erase Board

Not a whole lot of people know this about me, but I kind of geek out over cute but practical office supplies.  I fall in love with pens that have the perfect grip, ink flow and size.  I have a secret stash of cute paperclips, pushpins and post-it notes.  We all spend a lot of hours working, so why not surround ourselves with things that are practical but also bring big smiles to our faces.

A big smile was planted on my face, the first time I ever visited Three by Three Seattle’s website.  These products (available online) are designed here in Seattle and are a fabulous blend of design and function.  They’ve got some very cool magnetic strips and magnets. I especially love their Magnum Magnets, which can hold up to 12 sheets of paper.

Their magnet hooks are also ridiculously impressive:

But the product that really caught my attention were their Dry Erase Channel Panels.  Not only does the bamboo wood with dry erase finish provide a much more pleasing look than a white board, there are so many elements to this panel that make it fun and functional.  There’s a hidden “mail pocket” at the top where you can put letters or small objects, 2 hooks (great for hanging scissors and keys), a bamboo cup and holder (no more searching around for those pens), and a magnetic strip.

The environmentalist in me was really happy to read that this board is designed with sustainable bamboo (using a dry erase board also helps me cut back on my use of paper).  Three by Three’s Seattle-based designer, Gwen Weinberg, is a former bookbinder and jewelry maker – you can see why she’s becoming nationally recognized for her innovation of products that use bamboo, glass and stainless steel. Three by Three was designed the first ever magnetic strip bullietin board and I’m happy to have their products in my home office!

Here’s your chance to enter to win a small bamboo dry erase channel panel (value $70)!

**Note: Contest has ended!

Seattle Pockets was given a channel panel for personal use and for the giveaway, in exchange for the review. All opinions here are mine.

Shop Seattle – New Seattle Pockets feature

For the last few months, it’s been fun sharing my favorite Seattle “pockets” with you: restaurant reviews, previews of food, wine and arts events, and more.  But I realized there’s a “pocket” I haven’t covered yet: products designed here in Seattle! I was recently introduced to Three by Three Seattle, a company that creates beautiful alternatives to office products (dry erase boards, magnets, corkboards, etc).

I fell in love with the look of their bamboo dry erase channel panel (trust me, you’ll want one for yourself) and will be sharing my review of their later this week, which will also include a giveaway!  Stay tuned…
