Best Bets Daily: Wednesday

Stop, Drop, and Roll

Posted March 26, 2008
Harry Allen may not yet be a household name, but to design insiders he’s a rock star. His projects include the original design of Moss and the exceedingly popular but possibly too realistic pig “piggy bank” that was a huge hit when introduced in metallic silver and gold. This past gift show Allen, via Areaware, introduced this very Roller Girl book or door stop, an almost exact replica of what he might have worn to roller-skate at the Roxy back in the day. It's available in white or green to match whatever décor or books you have around and will be available at the end of April.
