Using an actual pig for a piggy bank is so inside the box. Me, I'm getting a Rhino bank.
Kooroo animals may be making the coolest things in Kansas right now. With a small collection of locally made ceramic piggy banks in shapes like camels, buffalos, and lions, Kooroo is looking to add a little fun and quirkiness to your day. Piggy banks not your thing? Make sure you check out their letterpress too.
These letterpress coasters take inspiration from Mid-Century art as well as ethnic patterns and textiles, a stunning combination if I do say so myself! You can snag them in sets of 8 in either a white/black or gold/black color scheme.
Enormous Champion is a Brooklyn-based letterpress and screen printing shop run by collaborative partners (and real life couple) Jordan Provost and Jason Wong. They have a line of printed goods ranging from tea towels to prints to note cards. I especially love their playful take on the classic houndstooth and herringbone patterns created with bunnies, seagulls, bats, and eagles. Take a peek at their shop and see what tickles your fancy!
Today I'm serving up some more letterpress goodness. This time in the notebook form. These cross stitch patterns were designed by Abbey Hendrickson, founder of Aesthetic Outburst and printed by Rachel of Pistachio Press. They are available for purchase for $7 each or $18 for a set of 3. Alternately if you are feeling lucky, you can head over to Aesthetic Outburst today and try and win one in their giveaway.

Put a bird on it? Naw. I say put an owl on it. I mean come on, just look at those cute little owl eyes staring back at you. Who can resist that.
Not a fan of fowl? Prefer something a little less cheery and fluffy. Get your grumpy on with this black and pink clouds and bolts card.
Lots more letterpress goodies on the Etsy Letterpress store.
I know that's a mouthful, but it is what it is: a 2011 letterpress calendar coaster set. Each coaster is hand printed on a vintage letterpress and features a monthly calendar on one side and a rad design on the other. The set includes 13 coasters (one for each month, plus the "2011 cover" coaster). A pretty sweet idea, if you ask me!
