I like functional designs. I don't collect trinkets that don't perform some sort of role. So when I first saw the Cork Pets, I thought, 'Oh just what everybody needs, more silly stuff cluttering up their shelves..." But then I realized, the Cork Pets do have a special role....
They are holders for those special bottles of wines and the special
memories that went with them.... The bottle of champagne you and your
fiance drank when you said "yes," the bottle of Napa Valley Zinfandel
you drank on your honeymoon, the one you drank with your BFF before she
left for the Peace Corps... all those moments you don't want to forget,
so you keep the cork, of course.
But over time you've save a few dozen of these corks, in a bag, in a draw... wherever... and you can't identify them any longer.
The Cork Pets may help to remind you by adding a sparkling pewter personality to the cork and reinforcing why it was so special. Hand sculpted from wax, before their pewter casting, each 3.5 inch Cork Pet is polished to a high finish to give your cork the attention it deserves.
The Cork Pet makes a wonderful gift. You man want to save your cork this Valentine's Day and give it back to your special one in a Cork Pet from Uncommon Goods.
