As we slide into the holiday season, it seems like a great time to offer a shopping guide. Every website included in this guide has a special place in's heart, each for their own special reason. This is my small way of saying a 'thank you' to each of them and encouraging you to check out what each site has to offer., Inc. opened its virtual doors in 1995, and over that time, has helped over 4 million customers decorate their walls from the world’s large collection of art imagery.

The Witches Brew
A pagan run cafe in Auburn, NY. Also sells herbs, lotions and books. Look for bumper stickers, rainbow products and other support items for the gay community (proceeds go to the Unitarian Church's Auburn Pride Celebration). Seasonal and regular coffees are available, and also "The Witches Brew", which is more of a robust blend sure enough to get you flying, (on a broom if you will). Also the Kitchen Witch is always working hard baking sweets to make your mouth water. There is also a wonderful lunch menu with paninis, sandwiches, salads and soups. "Come on down to the Witches Brew and sit for a 'spell'!"
This site was recently redesigned, and I just love it. This is one of my favorite coffee sites on the web, and a marvelous way to soak up some great news and information.

Coffee Snob's Cold Drip Coffee Maker
This coffee maker is gorgeous. It's an homage to the Victorian era - can't you just see Jules Verne with one of these aboard the Nautilus? The glass pieces are beautifully shaped, the metal bits add detail and sparkle, and the wood framework is as warm and rich as the cup of coffee you're anticipating...
