Etsy seller Finders&Keepers is in the business of taking normal, everyday items and recycling them for novel uses. Take for example that old Polo shirt sitting in your closet. They’ll take Polo’s just like that forgotten one in your closet and repurpose it into something useful – like a MacBook or iPad case.
I’m not too sure if I’d use these for my own MacBooks or iPads, but I can totally see a certain niche of people loving this item. This would make for the perfect gift for the techie that loves to frequent garage sales, swap meets, second-hand shops, and craigslist. And let’s not forget what a wonderful conversation piece these cases would make.
The Finders& Keepers Recycled MacBook and iPad cases are available now from Etsy and range in price from $55 to $75.
I love a good deal and let me tell you, Griffin Technology has some pretty great deals going on at the moment. This is especially true if you’re a first generation iPad owner (like me). They’ve dropped the prices of a ton of their iPad cases by up to 78%. I myself picked up both the Elan Form (regular price $49.99; on sale for $13.99) and the Studio Stand (regular price $49.99; on sale for $10.99). Pretty sweet deal … so far … read on as to how you can save even more!
Perusing the rest of the Griffin Technology shop, I also noticed that they’ve upped their selection of Threadless iPhone 4 cases. I myself use a Griffin Reveal Etch. With that said, Threadless x Griffin Technology iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPod Touch 2nd Gen and 3rd Gen cases are 50% off at $14.99 (regular price $30). And you can also score a deal on a selection of iPhone 4 Threadless cases for $24.99 (regular price $29.99). Check out the selection of Threadless x Griffin Technology Cases here.
Threadless and Griffin have just released 4 new iPod Touch Cases, featuring 4 classic Threadless designs. The Gaming Revolution by Sean Mort is one of my favorite Threadless designs – ever. Space Needs Color by Alvaro Arteaga Sabaini looks absolutely stunning as an iPhone case design. Put The Needle On The Record was never a Threadless favorite of mine (maybe because of the raised ink used on the tee), but as an iPhone Case design, it just works.
Unlike previous Threadless X Griffin cases, the new batch is made specifically for the iPod Touch. If I had to guess as to why this is case, I would say that it has something to do with the rumors of a new iPhone being released sometime in early June.
