They're stocking candy canes at the grocery store, and our local Bed Bath & Beyond's got plush singing rabbis (I'm not making this up), so that must mean the holidays are near. Gearing up for the holiday season before Thanksgiving fills me with disgust, but being the gut-monger I am, I suppose I must jump aboard the holiday retail bandwagon and remind you to check out our Gutsy Gift Guide. It'll tell you what to buy if your best friend is getting a mammogram, or just the thing for your diabetic brother. There's even a sebaceous gland lapel pin for that diligent cosmotologist who got rid of all those zits for ya. Our handy list will help you find just what the doctor ordered for that marvelous nurse, amazing pediatrician, or that special medical student in your life. So take two lapel pins and call us in the morning.
Enjoy our action-packed gutsy new sticker sets, Have You Got Guts? and These Glands Are Your Glands, each with 14 stickers for just $7 bucks each! Outdoor-quality 3.25" vinyl stickers are perfect for your water bottle, your car, or your friend's car! Ridiculous illustrated versions of the heart, liver, lungs, bladder, brain, uterus, kidneys, intestine, pancreas, stomach, spleen, and gallbladder along with our usual groan-inducing puns. Includes bonus eyeball and skin stickers! Great way to share the magic of the body with friends or your kids. Even if you forgot what the spleen does, our silly drawings will help jog your memory (if you need more help, there's always Google). The gland sticker set contains super silly illustrated versions of the thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, hypothalamus, pineal, sebaceous, testicle, prostate, ovary, mammary, salivary gland, sweat gland, adrenals, and thymus. These might be the weirdest stickers you ever own. Get 'em both, stick them in a blank book and voila, instant anatomy primer for preschoolers!
Come see your guts in Manhattan next weekend! We will be shilling guts (and raffling off some stuff, too) and enjoying being back in our ye olde stomping grounds during the Bust Magazine Craftacular and Food Fair. Can't wait to see what all the East Coast craft mafia has been doing and sample some of the yummy foods! Highlights from the show: free goodie bags for the first 300 peeps with stuff from sponsors like Blue Q and Modcloth; Fang skirt by New York Couture, baked goods by You'll Eat It and Like It; embroidered can-tab coasters by Thimbletop, hilarious greeting cards by McBittersons Tasteless Wares, and star chef Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune will be there to sign her new book, Blood, Bones and Butter. The dirty details: May 21st at 82 Mercer in Soho between Spring and Broome. 11am-8pm and only $3 bucks to get in! Come and visit us, we'd love to see you!
We get a lot of great ideas from our customers here at I Heart Guts, but one of my personal favorites came from a dental student in Michigan, who begged us to make tooth t-shirts reading "Flossin' Ain't Just for Gangstas." Now while we still haven't made these shirts, I did make this one-of-a-kind drawing, along with a bunch of other special doodles -- including brains, lungs and kidneys -- all up for sale in the I Heart Guts store. Maybe you'll give one of these special friends a good home?
