Found this great post-it design from swissmiss that I know I would definitely want to use if they were a bit more cheaper, leaf-shaped post-it’s, designed by Appree.

Available for purchase from MollaSpace.

Magnum Gold ?!

I ate a new ice cream yesterday called Magnum Gold ?!

Seriously, with the ?! part.

The ice cream is a product of Wall’s, or more common as Algida in Turkey, by the company Unilever.

I recommend you to try it. The usually chocolate cover of the ice-cream is a gold color. So even if the taste of the ice-cream is average, you will enjoy looking at the color of the ice-cream and will want to buy it again.

iGoogle

I had mentioned iGoogle (Google’s customizable page) in one of my previous posts, when trying to find a layout style for keşfekeder, which was an unlaunched project for VA 301 suggested by my friend Ezgi.

I use the tea house theme for my own iGoogle, which I think is wonderful because it changes all the time. I love foxes and the illustration of this particular fox is amazingly cute. Plus it changes during the day. Check this out:

You might have noticed the spirits there at 03:14 who eat the oranges which are offerings, they are some kind of a Yōkai which are a class of preternatural creatures in Japanese folklore ranging from the evil oni (ogre) to the mischievous kitsune (fox) or snow woman Yuki-onna.

Emily the Strange Electric Guitar Design

Oh how I wish I still played the guitar. I know I’m guilty, I’m lazy, I wish I had the guts to ignore the pain in my left pinkie and start playing again.

I know Emily the Strange is a character that could be nowadays called kitsch because it’s been too repetitive, but I still like her. I love the electric guitar design (produced by Emily the Strange and Epiphone). *Sigh*

What about the style? – The Second-hand / Handmade Clothing & Accessory Shop Idea, Bitpazarı

Here are some images that I think will be helpful of the VA 301 class to define the style of Bitpazarı, the second-hand/ handmade clothing and accessory shop.

BLOKE Clothing provides hard to find and exclusive brand name evening casual wear for men in Calgary. I liked the slogan and the placement here.

The Attic wholesales used and vintage clothing to companies and individuals all over the world.

Another image from Attic Vintage. The barrels look quite interesting, and this setting might attract the younger population.

Again, an image from Attic Vintage, but this time we see a wall of clothes. Quite original.

More photos from Attic Vintage, which is very close to the image of Bitpazarı in my head:

the ATTIC Vintage Clothing Store is designed in a distinctive retro look and feel. Its like stepping into a time machine. 1965, here we come!

Another vintage clothing store, peanutbreath, has a wide selection of vintage clothing too. I think this one is not bad, although the Attic has much more options. I like the clothing racks of peanutbreath though.

I really also liked retrostar, which is in Australia, just look at the store. Love the changing rooms.

There is also a Right to the Moon Alice Vintage Clothing, who claims to have worked with several movies including "Mona Lisa Smile", "The Kite Runner" and "All Good Things". That's quite impressive, and their 20,000 square foot warehouse is too.

So I guess these kinds of places have rows and rows of clothing in a large location where people have to thumb through for a long time to find something just for them. But this might be more attracting since most of the clothes are one of a kind.
