Jac Zagoory makes some interesting pens and desk accessories. If you can't justify spending $150.00 on a stapler they show up on eBay now and again. Of course you could save your pennies and go bespoke through Swaine Adeney.

Talk about conversation starter...

Demographic saturation maps. It makes for a nice conversation piece. I can point and say "The more brown an area is, the more Mexicans. The more white it is, the more Anglos."

A few pics of talent who have done spots/ads for my company. Print ads are posted everywhere, though I have been keeping them in a folder as of late.

I got bookends, but not those. I'll take a pic soon.

If I'm hiring for a new position, I cover a section of a wall in resumes. I've always wanted an attractive work area, but I think it looks more some detective went on the deep end with a case he obsessed over. I just want at-a-glance information and references around me.
