Stoner disappeared at the height of his fame, but just look at what he left behind.

They Come with an Invisible Plane and a Lasso

I love the idea of these kitschy transparent boots, but reviews say they’re poorly made. Still, I’ve fallen for the smokey ones:

If I didn’t mind visible, condensed sweat beading inside my shoes, I’d be all over those suckers. Ah well.

Six Years of Lovely For Sale

When I launched Mighty Goods nearly six years ago, it was the very first shopping blog. My friend Doug Bowman designed it over several afternoons at coffee shops that no longer exist. Since then he’s gotten married and had a baby, gone to work at Google, and then left to work at Twitter. Over the years the site and brand have grown, winning several awards — Time Magazine Top 50, and Best Shopping for both Forbes and BusinessWeek — and spawning sister sites Mighty Junior and Mighty Haus. I’m really proud of what we’ve built.

When Mighty Goods launched, online shopping was still in its infancy. We were there when most brick-and-mortar stores only had brochure sites, and we were early cheerleaders for Etsy (Viva!). A few people have offered to buy the sites over the years, but I loved cozying up with my laptop to shop in my spare time. Unfortunately, spare time has been harder to come by since I became a mom and a full-time writer. What started as a hobby has grown into a business — one I no longer have time to maintain properly. The shopping sites have so much more untapped potential; it’s time to find them a better home.

So in the interest of doing that, I’m putting a For Sale sign on the front lawn. If you’d like to acquire Mighty Goods, Mighty Haus, and Mighty Junior, drop me a line at maggie at mightygoods dot com.

For loyal readers of the sites, do not worry one bit. I have a lot of cute stuff in my bookmarks, and all of it is still coming your way. You’ve helped me build an amazing business, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Twips did a comic based on one of my Tweets. Even got the hair right.
