Three years ago yesterday was Of a Kind’s very first day in business. We released some pretty cute purses shaped like bunnies on a website that looked like the above. We sold some, even—almost exclusively to people we knew, most of whom shared a bloodline with us. So, yeah, it’s still pretty exciting 1,000+ days later any time an order (or a newsletter sign-up for that matter) comes in from someone who is not an aunt or a former babysitter. Thanks to all you people we don’t know—and also the ones we do know—for helping us make it this far. We pinky promise that not a day goes by that we take it for granted. —claire

Claire’s things:
  • Challenging my friends to rank just about everything I can think of, thanks to Proust, a completely addictive app that takes the basic concept of “Do, Dump, or Marry?” to soaring new heights.

  • Coming across the hands-down most genius iPhone “case” I’ve seen—Corners4 protects your phone while still letting you have the naked experience that Steve Jobs intended.

  • Loving the Annie Liebovitz-shot spread of Jessica Chastain in December Vogue—click through the shots here and see them side-by-side with the paintings they were inspired by here.

  • Appreciating this New York Times op-ed on Etsy and the difficulty of trying to define what qualifies an item as handmade.

  • Browsing the amazing (and well-priced!) collection of made-in-America vintage men’s apparel (lots of never-been-worn, military-issue stuff from the sixties!) and objects (Nixon campaign buttons!) at the newly-opened General Store in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
