The Unemployed Philosphers Guild Giveaway


The Unemployed Philosophers Guild, located at 105 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn as well an amazing online store, has some great items for the tourist making a quick visit to this planet. Gifts range from Atone Mints candies, a Sigmund Freud plush doll, and a Global Warming mug (watch the continents disappear as the mug warms up--not dishwasher safe, btw). They also have a free e-card service, sure to get you noticed.

The Guild also sells paper items, including Passport Notebooks. The 3.5" x 5" notebook is a handy travelogue for your inner journey, and has 64 lined pages of what feels like 80gsm paper. The insides covers contain travel tips as well as official passport information (including a place for a picture).

I recently picked up a few items from the Guild, and bought three Passport Notebooks for a giveaway. The Passports are pictured above: Paradise (yellow), Wonderland (dark pink), and Oz (emerald green, of course). All are in their wrappers waiting for some lucky winner to claim as a prize.

The Contest Rules:

1. Leave a comment below by 3 pm Sunday, February 26.

2. Comments will be considered to be in number order (first comment = 1, second comment = 2, etc.)

3. I will pick three winners at random to receive a Passport of my choosing, and will post the results on Monday, February 27 in the morning.

4. You will have one week to contact me via email. If any notebooks are not claimed, I will simply pick another winner at random.

5. Enjoy.

  3. A notebook disguised as a passport to Paradise?

    Makes perfect sense to me. :)

  4. They also have a cool "Wind Up Freud" pillow, with the inscription "Tell me about your childhood."

  15. Razide17, actually no I didn't. I thought I'd do one giveaway, then decided I'd rather share all of them. :)

  16. I like the creative name of the store. Just looking at the title before I read your post I figured they were a literary group or publishing company. The Passport Journals are a clever idea too--sort of like a fun take on the Moleskine city guides!
