10 Things We’re Loving Now: Duck Tape, FIFA flipflops, The Goldfinch + more
Our finds are getting cuter and cooler!
(SPOT.ph) Our treasure trove is mostly kitschy this week: a frog bottle opener (because it’s cuter than your run-of-the-mill kitchen tool), Duck Tape (because it’s better than your average duct tape), a necklace that will never protect you from the rain (just because), and flipflops to show off your FIFA pride!
Funky Land Magnetic Bottle Opener (P468)
This cheerful frog can take the cap off your beer bottle faster than you can croak. It's magnetic, too, so you don't have to worry about searching the floor for wayward bottle caps.
Available at Pylones
Team Havaianas Flipflops (P1,145 per pair)
Get in on football fever with flipflops sporting your team colors of choice-there are 16 available, including Brazil, Germany, and the Netherlands. A portion of the sales will benefit Field of Hope, an advocacy that's helping rehabilitate Haiyan/Yolanda-ravaged areas. We'd call that win-win.
Available at All Flip-Flops
