Posted by Matthew Kilpatrick on 7/26/2011
Sherlock Holmes, one of literature’s most well-known sleuths, taught us many things. Thanks to him, we can tell what somebody does for a living by looking at the bottom of their shoes.

The Benefits of Owning a Wooden Jewelry Box
Posted by Jonathan Bernal on 6/29/2011
Wooden jewelry boxes come in a wide array of styles and designs, and combine organized storage, aesthetic appeal and durability (they are commonly made of oak, a wood known for its ability to stand up to quite a lot). You could just throw your jewelry in any drawer but then it is more likely to be lost or damaged that way. Ever try laying a delicate necklace just anywhere? Good luck getting that knot untangled. Also, a wooden jewelry box will have soft felt lining that will treat your pieces with the care they need. Jewelry can be fragile and easily scratched or damaged in other ways; wooden jewelry boxes are designed with this in mind.
