Fresh Off The Boat

Received a few items in the mail this week and thought I’d share

Numistar

I saw this wallet on Kickstarter back in December last year and thought it was kind of cool; A wallet that would sort and store coins
Currently I’m using a Bellroy Slim Sleeve which holds tri-folded notes and no coins, which came in a Semi-Permanent VIP pack a few years ago.

This is kind of the basis for the idea

Numismatics [noo-miz-mat-iks, -mis-, nyoo-]

noun, ( used with a singular verb)

1. is the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects.

So here it is, in a black Saffiano leather with a crimson strip along it, inspired by Deadpool.

From first glance at the wallet, it looks big! It’s just under twice as big as my Bellroy. The coin sorter doesn’t look like it works well either. We’ll see how it plays out.

Way back in the late 80s, we had a Nintendo Family Computer.  Ours even had a Disk System for games!!

I recently discovered that a company called 8Bitdo make bluetooth controllers with one of them looking like the FamiCom one, so I picked one up from Play-Asia in the hopes to use it with my Nintendo Switch and also my iPhone for gaming.

No-Face Money Box

Recently saw this one on a friends Facebook feed and instantly went searching for it!!! Initially only for sale in Japan, and only during the month of May, I was able to source mine from Japan Trend Shop

Those that like anime must have seen Studio Ghibli‘s Spirited Away.
This No-Face money box begs for food/coins and then swallows them up, like he does in the movie. Even has sound!!

And check out the amazing box art
