Tap Class
We're not sure if anyone can actually master the art of this paddleball game (officially called "tap tap"), but it sure is fun trying. Especially when the paddles feature cute little pigs, cows, or cats ($4).

Cotton Picking
Charles P. Rogers is known for those iconic iron beds, but the 150-year-old company's new sheet collection could be the best deal in town. There are eight patterns, all made of silky-smooth 450-thread-count Egyptian cotton, available either à la carte or in queen or king sets, which include a duvet cover, flat and fitted sheets, two pillow shams, and two pillow cases (queen set, $399; king set, $499).

The Ball's in Your Court
Time to start practicing if you want to show off your backhand this summer. LeSportsac's new tennis tote is a light nylon bag with separate sections for your racquet and balls -- and plenty of room for the all-important outfit. Available in solid navy, black, or red, and tan plaid ($148).

It's a Wrap
Colette Malouf's newest introduction is a sexy, two-in-one accessory. The long strip of leather wraps around your wrist as a bracelet or around your neck as a choker. In black or brown leather, with sterling-silver clasp ($100).
