Binge Stocking Stuffer: Tank Bank!

I had the day off today and spent it hanging out (in my fun new Alternative Apparel "chill pants") and wandering around with my sister, who's visiting from Virginia. We stopped into our favorite store, Exit 9, where I tee-hee'ed over this cute water tank bank:

They're all sold out at Exit 9 (online, that is -- they had a bunch in the shop), but you can get them at MoMA for $25. They're mini replicas (obviously) of New York City's famed rooftop water tanks (Brooklyn Industries uses a water tank in their logo), which have been around since the 1800s. One of the coolest things about water tanks, aside from the cool juxtaposition of their olde-tymey appearance atop new buildings, is that they're still produced by the same two family businesses that have been making them all along -- Isseks Brothers and the Rosenwach Tank Company. True story!

Anyway, $25 is a bit much for a bank, but you can put that RIGHT BACK INTO IT when you save your pennies inside! THINK ABOUT IT!
