Lewis Taylor gives me another outlet for my office supply obsession with this tabbed medicine cabinet. This is the first actionable solution I’ve found for sharing a medicine with my girlfriend (cabinet other than pulling the sitcom trick of drawing a line down the middle and staking a claim).

Etsy seller apfelstrudel has a great collection of collage art, typefaces, and Gilded Age ephemera. I can’t explain it, but I’m made absolutely dizzy by these pages. I can’t help but think I’d giggle and clap if I came across these in the Strand’s dollar bin.
I’ve always wondered how to keep taxidermy looking fresh. Do you have to rub oils and creams on it to keep the flesh from cracking? The thought just gives me the heebie-jebbies.

Crappy Taxidermy is a tumblr site dedicated to odd or shoddy animal preservation.
Please give Fishs Eddy your money, they so totally deserve it.
For 25 years, Fishs Eddy has sold vintage dishware from diners, roadhouses, airlines, and their own unique new designs. About two years ago, their upper west side location closed and, as far as I can tell, they only have one location left (B’way + 19th).

Get your wallets at the ready and head on over.

Benjamin Ferencz’s Selectism column points to the remarkable bespoke work of Freeman’s Sporting Club. FSC’s clothes are made from deadstock cotton, wool, and other unused materials from the 1950s and 1960s. Their works are built to last and designed to age beautifully.
Although that kind of custom tailoring is way over my paygrade, the select pieces available for sale at Refinery29 move FSC’s collection from the fantastic to the merely aspirational.
