We’ve received a few comments mentioning that TravelAge West’s larger format is difficult to store in traditional desktop organizers and magazine files. Say no more. We took a trip to the neighborhood office-supply store and found a rack that will let you keep back issues close at hand. Plus, a toiletry bag from the folks at Flight 001, a travel-friendly tank and a desktop accessory reminiscent of the days when a hostess in a funny hat greeted you at the tarmac.
Time to make up
Flight 001 Two-Zip Dopp
These brightly colored toiletry bags from the travel gear supplier Flight 001 have an easy-grip handle with two zippers that pull back in unison. A roomy inside features removable, zippered, mesh pouch. $30.
Ex-Officio Lazy Daisy Tank
This stretchy tank can be worn as an undergarment in colder climes or by itself on a warm-weather holiday. Air dries within hours. Breathable, moisture-wicking fabric. Pink (shown) or blue. $26.
Rack ’em up
Staples magazine rack
Always fumbling around for last week’s issue of TravelAge West? You can store a dozen or more back issues in a metal magazine rack suitable for larger-format publications. We found this one at Staples. $8-$9.
Those were the days
Authentic Models Autour du Monde
Back in the days when the drone of prop engines and a glass of Dom Perignon lulled air passengers to sleep, many a travel-agent office displayed a model of the Lockheed Constellation — the ultimate in airline performance and luxury in the 1950s — as an advertisement for airlines. This authentic reproduction, cast in airplane aluminum, is a classy desk ornament or gift for a valued client. 8 ¼ by 10 ½ by 6 ¾ inches. $49.95. www.distantlands.com
