Well, it's midsummer and the Great Recession is still here, and if your purchasing power is anything like mine, you have to be careful about what you spend your money on. The most economical way to buy is to buy once, i.e., buy something of quality that you will keep and use for years.
A well-made thing should also be well designed, preferably with a modern design. That's why I'm partnering with AllModern.com. Part of CSN Stores, All Modern is just one of over 260 retail sites that offer a diverse array of products from Herman Miller's popular Aeron Chair to cookware by Rachael Ray.
As a special offer for One-Way Street readers, you can win this Rosenthal Pinball Salt and Pepper Set. Here's all you have to do: Leave a comment to this post saying something nice about something--this blog, AllModern.com, the band you saw at Pitchfork last weekend, whatever--and include your email address so I can contact you. The winner will be picked at random on July 27.
Sorry, but this giveaway is limited to readers in the US and Canada.
