Odds & Ends

Here's a couple items I've recently run across. While in New York, I wandered through Fishs Eddy, a fun shop that carries a variety of dishes and housewares. Among other things, they offer a set of Oz drinking glasses featuring W. W. Denslow images of the famous four. Of course I picked up a set - though I think it's unfortunate that they didn't pick a better image of Dorothy! Some very fun dishes relating to Alice in Wonderland are also available.

Friends occasionally run across Oz-related items and pass them on to me - for example, this set of glittery ruby slipper soap. Perhaps they produce Glinda bubbles? It just shows how embedded the Oz imagery is, particularly the MGM movie.

This looks like the set of glasses sold at URBAN OUTFITTERS a few years ago.

After taking a look online, you're right! Urban Outfitters doesn't seem to carry them any longer, but they're still available at Fishs Eddy.

Isn't Fishs Eddy a fun store! I love the ruby slipper soaps - did you get any bubbles?
