I have always been extremely crafty, I like to sew and scrapbook. You might be surprised, but when you think about it, crafting and being handy around the house go hand-in-hand.
I love to be able to fix small repairs, when we moved into our brand new house a couple of months ago there were handy things that needed to be done. We had to purchase and hang our own bathroom mirrors, put up blinds and curtains, and install door stoppers. Luckily for me, I had already ordered my The Original Pink Box 30-piece tool kit from DealDash. It had absolutely everything that I needed to get started doing minor home repairs, including a tape measure, hammer, pliers, screw driver tips, and more.
Here is a full list of what is included:
12″ bag with 24 inside and outside pockets
16′ self locking tape measure
6″ needle nose pliers
6″ slip joint pliers
8 piece hex key wrench set in holder (SAE: 1/16″, 5/64″, 3/32″, 1/8″, 5/32″, 3/16″, 7/32″, 1/4″)
The Original Pink Box tools are so cute, yet they are just as rugged and finely made as some of the more “masculine” tool sets. I love that there are tools made that fit my personal aesthetic without compromising quality. These The Original Pink Box tools even get my little daughter excited about learning how to use tools, she loves to help, and the fact that these tools are her (and my!) favorite color makes them all the more fun to use!
The Original Pink Box company is based in California, and tries to keep jobs in the USA by manufacturing most of their tool components here. They have even recently bought new machinery so they are able to produce more of their parts right here in the USA.
If you’re interested in owning some of The Original Pink Box tools – which by the way is the only full tool line with all pink tools, DealDash has you covered. Head on over to DealDash and see all of the awesome tool auctions that are coming up soon.

Based in San Mateo, California, GoPro, Inc. is an American-based corporation that is in the high-definition personal camera business. The company was founded by Nick Woodman in 2002. Woodman started the company following a 2002 surf trip to Australia in which he was hoping to capture quality action photos of his surfing, but could not because amateur photographers could not get close enough, or obtain quality equipment at reasonable prices.His desire for a camera system that could capture the professional angles inspired the ‘GoPro’ name. Woodman initially raised a portion of the money for his company by selling bead and shell belts for $20 out of his VW van,and later, fashionable camera straps. He also received over $230,000 in investment from his parents. Though GoPro had modest beginnings, you might be interested to know that they now have over 860 employees!
If you are interested in a GoPro or any of it’s many accessories head on over to DealDash. You can find GoPro cameras in different models, chest mount harnesses, battery chargers, clamp mounts, wall chargers, and more!
Makia Clothing has Invaded DealDash! And we LOVE it!
Have you seen all of the new Makia Clothing products that have been showing up on DealDash lately? There are a HUGE number of awesome Makia Clothing gear available, let me show you – starting with hats, we have the Makia Cap in Asphalt gray, Navy blue, and my personal favorite, the Makia Rooibos Tea Calypso Cap, which is a burnt sienna type of color.
Other than hats there are also backpacks and bags available – my favorite is the Sailor Bag in black and pink, but there is also a Duffle Bag and a backpack, both available in denim.
Makia is a clothing company that was founded in 2001 and based out of Helsinki, Finland. They offer a great variety of clothing, including both men’s and women’s styles, as well as gender-neutral items such as the hats and bags above, but they also offer scarves and wallets which we will hopefully be seeing on DealDash soon!
Makia Clothing loves sports, they were actually a sponsor of the first ever Winter Olympic Team Zimbabwe last year! Makia provided the outfits for team Zimbabwe. In addition to winter sports, they also love racing! As a Southern girl transplanted up North I appreciate racing as much as the next girl! The Makia Racing Team was founded in 2012, and their star driver is Kimi Raikkonen, who drives for team Ferrari. They have come out with a line of racing gear such as hats, hoodies, and tee shirts. If we’re lucky maybe DealDash will start having Makia Racing gear available as well!
In addition to sports the folks at Makia Clothing love beer! Makia’s newest collection is actually inspired by it! They love beer so much that they decided to dedicate their whole spring-summer 2015 collection around it. They went on a multi-country expedition to get to know their muse a little better, and I have to say it was a success!
I hope you have enjoyed getting to know Makia Clothing a little better. Go get out there and try to win some, you will be glad you did! Good luck everyone!
Tonfisk Design is an awesome company from Finland that really knows their way around the kitchen…With style!
Translated from Swedish, Tonfisk actually means “tuna fish”, which might sound a little strange, but when you see their products you will forget their quirky name and enjoy the clean elegant style that the Finnish are known for. You might wonder who makes all of these interesting products – the main designer is Brian Keaney, however the company has taken products into production from several different Finnish designers.
Tonfisk Design has a lot of interesting and different things to explore, one of my favorites is actually an extendable flower vase – perfect for when someone brings you flowers that are just too short or tall for any vases you have. It’s made of two parts, the lower part is made of porcelain and the upper part is made of laminated oak or walnut. The upper part can be raised or lowered to fit your flower’s height and still look great. This flower vase from Tonfisk Designs is called KasVu, in case you would like to do a little more research on it.
Another Tonfisk Designs favorite of mine is the “WARM” collection. WARM is a tea and coffee set that combines ceramic teacups and teapots with bracelets of laminated bent wood. Held on by friction, the wood acts as a handle and also insulates your tea or coffee. Since its launch in 1998 WARM tea and coffee set has become a ‘mini classic’ of Finnish and Scandinavian design.
If you’re like me you want to be sure that it’s easy to clean all of your kitchen items. You might ask yourself, “Can I use a dishwasher with these products?” The answer is YES! You can wash these products in the dish washer. All of the Tonfisk Design products are tested and certified for safety and have a food safe and durable glaze. You can also clean the wooden parts with a wet cloth. However, afterwards you should dry the parts at room temperature with good air circulation. The wooden parts are waterproof in normal use, however you should definitely avoid leaving the wooden parts in water and getting soaked, though. If this should happen, remove the handles from the water and leave them to dry on a table for a day or so. The handles should return to their original shape.
If you like the products from Tonfisk Design that I have shown you, there are many more to explore, and DealDash will be offering them soon. The best part about winning these items from DealDash is that instead of ordering them directly from Finland, DealDash ships it to us for free! Saving on shipping alone makes me loyal to DealDash. It’s so fun to be able to try products that aren’t as easily available in America. Good luck everyone, and Happy Bidding!
Almost every woman I know loves purses. You can be any shape or size, and you can always be sure that when you buy a purse it will fit, unlike some other articles of clothing!
Most of the women I know love leather purses. They are so soft and durable, if you take good care of them they can last many years to come. A nice high quality purse is truly an investment. Everyone knows that Italy makes some of the best leather purses. Unfortunately when you import things from Italy the shipping and customs charges can be a little overwhelming. Don’t worry, read on below, and I will tell you the solution to the shipping fee problem.
Luckily for those of us who love Italian leather DealDash will soon be carrying one of the classiest purse lines from Italy – Renato Angi. Not only might you win a Renato Angi purse for a great deal, even if you end up BINning (Buying it Now) you will still come out ahead, since DealDash has already imported these bags for us, and will ship them to us for free, just like all of the other great products that DealDash carries.
If you aren’t familiar with Renato Angi, let me give you a quick overview. The Renato Angi story starts long ago, back in 1965, when he attended the “School for Young Designers” in Venice, Italy. By 1970 he had formed the Renato Angi company. By the year 2000 Renato Angi had opened up shops in New York, Berlin, Copenhagen, and many more. Renato Angi carries all sorts of different bags, from the leather purses that I was speaking of before, to wristlets and tote bags. They even have work and travel bags for men, too. All of the Renato Angi are 100% made in Italy, so you know that you are getting pure quality, not like some other brands who contract out work to other countries to get things made for cheaper. Renato Angi is the real deal of luxury.
If you are interested in getting a Renato Angi bag of your own I would keep an eye on DealDash in the next upcoming weeks. They are planning on adding in some great Renato Angi, and I certainly hope to be able to win one! I wish you good luck as well, my fellow bidders. As much as we might all want a Renato Angi bag, try and remember to have some fun as well! Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
