    Infila Needle Threader

    $11.00

    Add to Wishlist

    This gorgeous little machine is one of my favorites.  So simple, so neat, lovely design and so incredibly effectie.  I have good eyesight, but I can still find threading a needle a challenge, particularly once I have bitten the thread rather than given it a clean cut.  INFILA is the automatic needle threader suitable for both large wool-type needles and thin ordinary ones. You can thread any type of needle in a flash even with your eyes shut!

    If you are looking for a way to save your frustration.  Hear it is. The Truly Brilliant Infila Automatic HAND Needle Threader. 

    It is very, very easy to use. There are two ‘funnels’ (one for an ordinary needle and one for a large one) in which you place the needle, eye down. Next you lay the thread in a gulley next to the funnel and push a button. Believe it or not, the thread pops through the needle eye in a twinkle of your own eye! - pure magic. If you want to thread multiple threads, you can do this one at a time, or all together it really doesn’t matter.

    It will take you no time at all to thread a needle with the INFILA.  As I said - my favourite gadet of all time.

    The infila works by pushing a small metal plate through the needle eye. If you are using very fine embroidery needles or quilting needles then these are simply to small and the threader will not work. To check this, use one of the needles that came with the infila and drop it into the white funnel, eye down and with the infila flat on the table. Gently slide white button across and hold it in place. You should now see the metal plate sticking out of the side. This plate will have gone through the needle eye and if the thread was there, should have threaded the needle.

    The needle is now threaded, pull the cotton through so that the short end comes out completely.  Then pull the needle out.  You are done.  Complicated instructions for an extremely uncomplicated tool.  

    Love it or your money back.  Isn't that what they say?  I am confident you will be very happy with this.

    Magnetic Key Holder

    $28.50

    Animal trophys most definitely suck, and although not on the same level, not being able to find your keys is certainly a big pain in the neck.  So ........ make a statement about hunting and always find your keys!  These are cute and so easy to use.  I know a few people who need these!  In fact, I have one and my keys are not overly light and the magnet is very strong so holds them up no problem.  On the info on the packet it says it holds up to 10 keys, but then again, what if one of those keys was a key from a castle gate - wouldn't hold ten of them would it!  Basically - it is a great product, but, don't ask the impossible!

    A Superhero that saves your books from an imminent fall.

    A special bookshelf that gives a 'floating-on-air' feeling. The superhero character seems to easily stop the books from falling down to the ground.  It is brilliant and confusing to the uninitiated.  For all those in the know, of which you are now one of a selected few, the instructions are as follows:  Ssshhh - don't tell everyone!  Or rather do tell everyone where to get one but keep the 'how to'  secret to yourself!

    Hang the Supershelf on the wall using two screws (not included). Insert the shelf between the book cover and the first/ last page of the book (preferably a soft covered / paypaerback book). Attach the magnetic superhero hand anywhere you please while holding the book cover tight to the shelf. Stack additional books on it until the base attached to the wall is completely covered. 

    An uncommon bookshelf that book lovers can't remain indifferent to…

    Max. Weight recommended 3.5kg. Do not overload. 

    Made of metal painted black.

    This is a special bookshelf.  Personally my one at home soars above the male superhero figure in the same style, but that is because chicks rule.  However, that is my opinion, you could have it the other way around.  It is ingenious and funny and secretly magical.  Beauty and power that keep the books aloft. For all those in the know, of which you are now one of a selected few, the instructions are as follows: Ssshhh - don't tell everyone! Or rather do tell everyone where to get one but keep the how to secret to yourself!

    Add some drama to your bookshelf!

    Falling bookend supports the books at a surprising, not straight angle. The bookend stands out on the shelf and creates interest and humor.

    The bookend is inserted in a concealed manner within the cover of the first book to be supported (a hard cover book is recommended). Then, few additional books can be leaned on it.This creates a feel that the books are about to fall on the man's figure, who is stretching its arms towards them in a defensive position.

    Important Note: intended for a limited amount of books.

    Made of metal, painted black.

Make sure the books cover at least the whole length of the bookend base. Attach the superhero's magnetic hand to the supporting book's cover and place it anywhere you please. Following the above, additional books may be leaned on the bookend.

    Coffee pod machines are terribly easy to use, but I finally got rid of mine because of the mountain of waste that it produced.  That together with the fact that I had to use only the coffee pods from that brand and couldn't try or buy other coffees.  

    However, I think I am bringing my machine out of retirement.  Welcome to the most brilliant reusable coffee capsules on the market.  Love this, love the concept, love the design.  You even have a perfectly designed container to carry two pods with you for use elsewhere, - at work for instance.  

    I am stocking the two pod package because I am always making coffee for someone else too.

    For videos and more information on this brilliant product please go to their website www.compatible-capsules.com

    Oh and one more thing - a huge money saver also.  Based on a family of four - potential saving (obviously depending on how much coffee you drink!) of over $1000 a year.

     So to sum up - rechargeable, affordable (in the long run!) and eco friendly - !
