Salt Self Defense Gun


Regardless of your views on gun control, the Salt Self Defense Gun offers non-lethal protection we can all support. Operating off of a proprietary pneumatic CO2 cartridge system, this handgun shoots plastic rounds of military grade, powdered pepper spray up to 200 feet that will literally stop anyone in their tracks. Immediate eye irritation and difficulty breathing formed by the pellet’s release of dust upon impact will keep any intruder at bay. Effective enough to feel safe, but safe enough to avoid irreversible damage. $350

Greycork Furniture


Based in Rhode Island, a group of young professionals noticed a problem with the furniture industry. It was either too expensive, poorly made, or hard to transport.

The result is durable, reasonably priced, better looking furniture shipped to your door. And at last, all designed to be easily assembled, disassembled, and brought to a new home when you move.
