Happy Holidays!

A big Thank You for all customers, suppliers and friends for a great 2021!

Instead of sending postcards or fancy gifts to all of you, we rather donate to kids in need around the world, supporting small local projects run by people that we know and trust:

Streetkids project in Ghana – Chance For Children

Village development in Bolivia – Pro Huancarani

Schooling and supporting kids in India – GandhiCare

Check out the projects above and maybe also consider donation. Already a small amount can make a big difference in the life of the unprivileged kids so help us to help!

Specials Page Update

We just added new old stuff on our Specials Page and new crazy low pricing for most of the old old stuff.

Catch ’em while you can!
