Here’s a sampling of some of our favorite products from GUS:

Heat Resistant Table Runner – The heat-resistant table runner is filled with heavy duty polyester batting to accommodate hot dishes safely while protecting your table surface from heat. It features a neutral polyester linen color fabric, with elegant black tassels on the corners to complement any décor. It also includes a set of 4 magnetic chalkboard labels.

Beauty Book – The new Beauty Book offers a unique way to store and organize collections of nail polishes, makeup or jewelry. This notebook-style organizer has lots of individual mesh compartments to securely hold multiple small items separately – from lipsticks to nail polishes to rings and more – so everything is visible at a glance.
This stunning red leatherette Beauty Book comes with a handle for travel convenience, and has a fashionable polka-dot fabric lined interior. The Beauty Book is available in two sizes: Large, for storing complete collections of cosmetics, nail polishes and jewelry, measuring 24½ inches long by 3 inches wide by 13 inches high; and Small, for travel or daily use.

Miss Manners Place Mats (set of 4) – Spice up the dinner table with these “Miss Manners” recycled cotton place mats. They are designed with a decorative ribbon edge that lists good manner rules, such as, “Ask to be excused before you leave the table,” and “Don’t rest your elbows on the table.”
The recycled place mats come in a set of 4 and are heather colored with a light gray ribbon of “Miss Manners” advice. Each place mat measures 18 inches long by 13 inch high. Coordinating napkins, napkin rings and coasters sold separately.
