    ...i found this whilst watching my favorite sunday morning show. its called "sunday morning". anyway the site has been overloaded since a lot of people had the same idea as me. lots of things the shed women might like and stuff for men too. i tried to order a bucket hat but the page would not come up i might try again later. looks like the prices are in euros but somebody might like the briefcase thats been reduced to 88 euros. made in portugal.

    ...are those real cork or plastic cork? that was a major part of the story, the cork industry. ive seen cork flooring and its expensive as i recall. in portugal where most of the cork tress grow you can only havest the bark every 9 years by law. it was a very interesting story. :neener:

    Where cork comes from- the Cork Oak.
    Grows mainly in Portugal. The cork bark can be stripped off every 9 years without killing the tree
