Fred and Friends Products….something fun for everyone

fred_logoI’m pleased to launch my new e-store, Debbie’s Home Store. My first product line is a line of fun home and kitchen products made by Fred & Company.  Fred’s Mission Statement is: FRED focuses on stuff that’s well-designed, puts a smile on your face, and doesn’t cost a fortune. Stuff that’s easy to buy, fun to own, and says “my home is my castle – I will not fill it with junk.”

My e-store is based out of Canada but people in the USA can buy the products too – just click on the product name to see more detail or buy, or they can buy them through the affiliate links listed below the products, which will then be sent directly from my US affiliate.

Fred says he’s got a big brick factory powered by childhood memories, a strong dislike for gift certificates at Christmas, and an endless urge to find new ways to make milk come out of your nose.  For anyone with a sense of humour, its very easy to find a gift. Here is a look at the new product line. I’ve added a small selection so far, and will continue to expand over time. However, if you find any other Fred & Friends product you want before I’ve added it to my inventory, let me know by email at debbieshomeshop@gmail.com and I will order it for you, it will just take an extra week or two. See below for full description of this fun product line.

Rendered in fine hand-blown glass, Unzipped is the temporary made contemporary. Durable borosilicate glass, individual giftbox packaging.

M-CUPS MEASURING MATRYOSHKAS

This set of 6 dry-measure cups nests neatly just like traditional Russian Matryoshkas.

HOPSIDE DOWN BEER GLASS

Fred likes to glug his beer right from the bottle, but Mrs. Fred is appalled. So Fred went out and did something about it – he created this bottle-in-a-glass as an homage to real men like him. Hopside Down is hand-blown, precisely crafted, and unexpectedly deluxe. Individually gift boxed. (one glass)

SAUCED MEASURING WINEGLASS

Fred enthusiastically endorses that famous comment often attributed to Julia Child – I enjoy cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food. So he’s designed a new kitchen tool no cook should be without – crystal stemware that measures in both cups and sips. It matters not whether the wine is destined for the chef or for the pan, you’ll be prepared! Sauced is a 12-ounce lead-free-crystal all-purpose wine glass, accurately marked in 1/4 cups and 2-ounce sips. Full color giftbox packaging. (one glass)
