Book of Secrets
Did you know there's a secret daily flight from the United States to Cuba? Or, that in 1966, the U.S. government smashed a bacteria-laden light bulb inside the New York subway system? Or that there are quite a few abandoned underground New York subway stations? Or, that there's an entire (now-abandoned) underground movie theater in France? Of course not, because they are secrets. And this book is full of them. That's why it's called [insert eerie music here] the Book of Secrets. OOOOoooooo...
Fairies. They are tiny. (Unless we're talking the True Blood version of fairies, but we won't go there today.) But how do fairies stay so tiny? For starters, they're always moving. Humans don't see fairies often because they're just THAT FAST. Zip. Gone. Also, fairies are constantly preparing food for humans to lure them into Fairyland and out of the real world. Since party hosts rarely have a chance to eat, again, fairies are at a calorie deficiency...
Dreamlights Fireflies in a Jar
"As the days get longer, and the nights get warmer, people are venturing outside their doors and enjoying the moonlight. As they walk down streets and paths, the flickering lights of fireflies are hard to miss. During some summers, trees would light up with more fireflies than there were stars in the heavens, turning the whole sky upside-down. As kids, many of us ran through our parents' back yards, collecting fireflies in jars. They'd flicker inside, blinking out their little buggy code to each other. We would wonder what their bioluminescent blinkenlights were actually saying. Were they discussing the merits of Proust? Perhaps engaging in a rabid defense of French Existentialist poetry in an age of materialism and excess. No - nothing that heady. In fact, their gentle flickering communicates their ability to mate and their location - the entomological equivalent of ""Hey baby! Yo! Over here, good-lookin'! Yo!"" Of course, unless you're an 8-year old boy, or an entomologist, bugs are kinda icky, so handling them may not be your favorite thing to do. Also, there's the cruelty factor of shaking a jar full of bugs giving them tiny buggy concussions in an effort to stimulate their bioluminescence simply for the joy of a child who, in a few short minutes, will lose interest in favor of their Nintendo DS and some new Pokemon title. So where bugs fail us, robots fill in. These robots come in the form of tiny LEDs inside a frosted glass lantern. During the day, the lantern soaks up the energy of the sun, and during the night the little robot bugs glow, flickering and throbbing like real fireflies. You can set them to glow as long as they have power, or only when you shake the lantern. Don't worry about harming the little fellas - they aren't real. Your karma is safe. So traipse across your moonlit garden again, like you did when you were a kid. Set it on your night stand to offer a soft soothing glow while you sleep, or just take a walk using the lantern as cool illumination as you go. The fireflies won't mind - in fact, they'll probably come to check out the hot little robotic numbers inside. Ooh yeah, baby. Features Glass lantern full of flickering LED ""fireflies"" Rechargeable solar batteries keep your lights going for many hours Switchable to glow when it gets dark, or when you shake the jar Soothing light that's cruelty free! 4 inches in diameter, 5 3/4 inches tall"

Capt. Jules' Extraordinary Telescope Ring
We love steampunk style. The tiny top hats, the goggles (they do nothing!), the corsets, the leather, the crazy weapons. We love that there's no canon, no official characters to cosplay, so you're free to let your imagination go wild when designing a costume. We're calling this amazing accessory Captain Jules' Extraordinary Telescope Ring, named after... well, actually, we just made him up...
