I was looking through the latest issue of Smithsonian Magazine and noticed a small ad in the back for a very cool mug and there was a Web address so of course I had to come check it out. The store is The Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild. This dinosaur mug is the one in the ad and yes I want it. They have about 20 more 12 ounce mugs, some with the changing picture feature and some without. I also like the Women Against Coffee mug, the Descartes mug and the Alice in Wonderland mug. The Adam and Eve mug does exactly what you think it does so don’t click on it if you are at work or if the kids are looking over your shoulder.
They have several very cool wristwatches. The mint tins are interesting. A few other things, t-shirts (very few) stationary, sticky notes, philosopher, author and composer puppets. A fairly limited selection actually but what they have is unique and interesting.
Don’t miss the video. (scroll down)
