Hamil-Swag for the Household

1) Collectible Plates– Available from Ebay.

2) Pillowcase- Found on All Things Hamilton (thanks to Nicole for the suggestion!)- I love the idea, but this is not my favorite depiction of Hamilton.  When they print this pillowcase with a different image,  I might just have to buy it…   

4) Tea Towels– I honestly don’t know what the function of a tea towel is, but this is still pretty cool.  Available on Amazon

5) Clock- From Founder of America

Alexander Hamilton clock

I like the idea of a Hamilton clock, but I dislike this particular quote excerpt because I think it is very misleading.   In reality, Hamilton was deflecting the suggestion that his genius came easily and offering an explanation of his approach and work ethic.  The full context of what he said is this:

Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have lies in this; when I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort that I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.

I have this up in my office- such a great motivation to focus!

Hamil-Swag: Office Supplies for Your Favorite Hamiltonian

This morning, I got into the office, looked at my desk, and realized how many awesome Hamilton accessories I have in my office.I’m sharing reviews of my three favorite Hamilton accessories since the holidays are coming up!  [Note: I am not getting advertising revenue for these reviews and all pictures are from my personal collection.]

1) Hamilton History Cube– Nifty picture cube featuring nine images from the New York Historical Society.  Great to play with on your desk.  Comes in a gift box.  Warning- the pictures will wear out if you play with the cube constantly.  I’m currently on my second one and I bought both from the Trinity Church gift shop.  {Available online from the NY Historical Society and sold at the Trinity Church Gift Shop}


2) Hamilton Bobblehead– My bobblehead is by far the coolest thing in my office.   Royal Bobbles has done a brilliant job with the detail on Hamilton’s face and clothes.  At under $20, I thought this was a steal.   However, Hamilton’s walking stick slipped out of his hands after a few months and I had to superglue part of his wig back together.   {Available from the History Channel and Amazon}

3) Mini-Hamilton Bust– This 6-inch bust works as a great paperweight or just a guard for your desk.  The detail on the face is pretty neat.  When I bought it, I expected it to be bigger, and at almost $30 it is a bit expensive for the size.  {available from Amazon}
