Manythings: SID Classified Ads

Manythings is a blog-style virtual bulletin board for SID students to buy/sell/trade textbooks, materials, equipment, and share job related information. Hopefully, it will help to consolidate all of that facebook and white board advertising to a central location. Check it out and start listing your old textbooks now!

Young Designer in NYC 3

I just had to buy these brass paperclips and japanese printed linen the moment I saw them...OK, I didn't need them but I just love them. One of the best stores in all of NYC is Kiosk, which located at 95 Spring St. in Soho. For the design minded person, this shop is a must. Really if you come to New York after knowledge of this post and don't go are a fool.
