Lefty's The Left Handed Store Review and Giveaway!




Hey Neighbors!

Here is a unique company I found. It is Lefty's San Francisco, The Left-hand Store. I have two left-handed children along with myself, so I was intrigued by a left-handed store. Lefty's sent me a Young Artist Series, Ready Set Draw...Under the Sea! (which opens from the top for easier access for left handed children) along with 2 pair of left-hand scissors (one blunt tip, one pointed), a couple of pencils (one with a lefty pencil grip), a pencil sharpener (that sharpens opposite for a left-handed child), and a couple of key chains. My son thought the set was too easy for him, so my daughter was nominated to try this out. The drawing starts out very basic, where first you trace the animal or object and then you draw it step by step. The Ready Set Draw comes with 4 double ended colored pencils.


My daughter is enjoying this set from Lefty's. She already did the Clown Fish, starfish and the Dolphin. She also loves having scissors designed just for her. You know, no one else can use them. She loves to draw so this book is great for her. I love that they have so many items available for left-handed people, even adults!


They have loads of left-hand kitchen tools. From can-openers to knives, to scissors, to measuring cups plus more are all available through Lefty's. And how often have you ever seen left-handed gardening tools. You need to see the watches! If you have a left-handed member of your family, you need to check out Lefty's!

I like the Lefty's Always Right Mug! That is so funny - "he graphics face the mug holder, and, more importantly, nothing will spill. When held in the right hand, liquid leaks out of a hard-to-see hole, dripping onto the foolish right handed drinker's clothes."

I would love to win.
