Unusual Business Card Case

I have no relationship to the seller - just thought this item was cool, and unusual.



They also have other modern-ish card cases that are in their regular stock.

I purchased, and have received 4 of these. WOW! They are the coolest. Hippo hardware couldn't find me something this cool. Now I'm going to have a to buy a new door to do justice to them!

Don't miss this chance. They are as-new. Mine even came packed in an in-side out original box!

Those lower cabinets look just like the Mills Pride Bianco I have in my old house. They were great - smooth, sleek and easy to clean. (And very easy on the wallet.)

The Doug Fir in Portland

Cool "modern" lounge in Portland. Not too long ago, this 1963 motel diner was nearing the end of it's life as cheaply 'remodeled' chinese 'tea house' (read cheap chinese with booze and video poker) with some skanky travel lodge motel rooms attached to it. After the last attempt to revive it went out...

You should be able to get Aluminum T-Mold edging to put on your countertops.

Precision Countertops in Portland, Oregon will do it - but they're in the wrong state for you. Maybe you can email them to find out who their supplier is.
