Then enter our giveaway for your chance to take a Grommet home; there'll be 15 lucky winners!
Hereís a sample of the products youíll be able to check out and the prizes you could win:
For Music Lovers
The Zumreed ($48.95) is a tear- or water droplet-shaped speaker in which your music player can sit safely, protected from sand and water. It comes in bold, modern colors and is the perfect amplifier of your music in the bathroom or on the beach.
Innovation from Somerville
The PocketMonkey ($23.95) is an ultra-thin stainless steel tool of 12 functions and is only the size of a credit card. TSA compliant, itís an incredibly handy tool you can take anywhere for opening oranges, bottles, or letters to using it as a ruler or kickstand for your phone.
What You Can Win
Happy Scarf ($29.95) is a fashion scarf that comes in various patterns, dimensions, and fabrics. The founders, Rachel Huang and Jason Faulkner, met while in Shanghai, China, and fell in love. Together, they launched a venture to celebrate contemporary textile design, creating scarves that put a smile on any wearer. We'll be giving away a scarf -- Penguins, Chevron Map, or The River -- to three lucky winners.
Let me know if we'll be seeing you there!
