I don’t know if you’ve heard but—the economy still sucks. I know, news to me too. Not everyone has an extra 2Gs laying around to spend on a Dell Adamo or new iMac. Don’t despair. The economy will get better one day (I hope…). Until then, if you’re a fashionista on a budget trying to up her tech game, M.I.S.S. has the answer for you: Fred Flare. The Brooklyn based retailer believes great design should be as “entertaining as an old musical or modern music video,” and the products they stock reflect that idea. Best of all, it’s CHEAP!
Some of their standout products include a two foot tall floor lamp designed like an ice cream cone ($48), compact iPod speakers that look like neon-colored lego bricks ($25), a USB hub made to resemble a row of tulips ($22, consider it going green), and lady bug shaped ear buds for your MP3 player of choice ($15). Other favorites include a retro receiver for your cell phone ($24), a mixtape USB flash drive ($18) for those who lament the loss of actual mixtapes, and a cheeseburger phone ($24) straight out of the movie, Juno.
Can’t make it to Brooklyn? All this and more can be purchased in Fred Flare’s online store. And just think! With the money you saved buying a cheeseburger phone, you might be able to afford an actual cheeseburger. Imagine that.
