Taz ah Mugs by Attua Aparicio Torinos

I first wrote about Thorsten van Elten in 2004 and have enjoyed watching him grow his online design shop ever since. A Brit, who was frustrated by the lack of support new designers were getting, he started his business and now finds, manufactures and sells a wide range of work. And he's got a good, quirky eye and a fun email that keeps you up to date with what's hip in London....

He's also a particularly good design source to highlight at the holidays. A lot of what he sells are gift niche killers. My favorite right now are the Taz ah Mugs (above - models not included) and The Mice in a Pint, which reminds me of my own mouse catching adventures last year. Enjoy!
