Herb Preserve Jars (1) $8-$20 There is always room for innovation. Herb Preserve has even made a few improvements to the standard glass jar. Theirs feature light-blocking pigmented glass, an airtight sealing lid, and thick, durable construction. Fragrances stay in, light and air stay out. Assorted sizes, designed to work as a set, make this line the most convenient (and discreet) way to tote your buds, whether you’re walking the dog after dinner or spending the week in Joshua Tree.
Pocket Ashtray (2) $48 Tsubota Pearl provides us with a graceful solution to an eternal struggle. The handy pocket ashtray fits easily in your pocket, purse or bag. Pop it out whenever you need it. Prevents messes and unwanted scents on clothing, cars and furniture. Polished chrome, hand wrapped in leather. The classy way to ash.
Bronson Cigarette Case by Jacob Bromwell (3) $198 A beautiful keepsake from one of our favorite heritage brands. Jacob Bromwell has been making fine household goods in America since 1819. This handsome cigarette case is hand soldered from pure copper. Hot-tinned on the inside for a rugged finish. Easily holds a dozen healthy handrolls. Built to last a lifetime, by the company that patented the first flour sifter.
Lighters and Grinders and Buds (Oh my!)
Space Case Herb Grinder (4) $30-$44 Aircraft grade aluminum, finished with an anodized non-stick titanium coating. Magnetic seal, low-friction teflon gasket. Precision-machined dull-resistant teeth. Yes, we are talking about a grinder. This space-age unit is built to shred smoothly all afternoon. Enjoy a fine, consistent grind for years to come, with a lifetime warranty to back it up.
Sweetleaf Herb Grinder (5) $26-$32 The trusty vintage herb grinder with the patented “peg” design. Made in Canada since Bachman Turner Overdrive was making hits. No tricks here, just simple, solid construction (from polished aluminum) and an iconic design.
Tsubota Pearl Black Satin Lighter (6) $48 Tsubota Pearl, a family-run business, has been designing lighters with expertise since 1952. Over the years they have designed dozens of lighters that embody the term “modern classic.” This satin-finished brass model is sharp. Each component is manufactured with care, for a smooth, reliable performance. Uses clean-burning butane. Light your fire like a pro.

The Sweet Scent of Discretion
Wary Meyers Candles (8) $28.50 These funky candles are handmade by artisans John and Linda in coastal Maine. Fun, all-natural scents like Sea Salt & Watermelon and Honey & Cocobolo Wood provide sensuous ambiance all afternoon. Perfect for setting the mood or clearing the air.
Dyer & Jenkins Shelter Spray (9) $20 Ditch the harsh deodorizers. These rustic scents are made from all-natural essential oils. The most convenient way to refresh any dank smelling room, tent, cabin, closet, pillow fort or Chevelle SS.
