Our daughter is four and like most kids her age she likes to tell stories and has a crazy imagination. At preschool one day she told her teacher about an alligator with sharp teeth, long claws and a dusty scaly tail that lived in her house until one day we sent him away in the mail. When I picked her up from school that day her teacher told us about her alligator story. She was shocked to find out it was true, that we did bring an alligator with sharp teeth and long claws home with us and sent him away to one lucky 3p4 customer.
Stu and I have a strange job and bring some strange things home with us. But it made us laugh the strange stories our daughter must tell at school – next time her teacher will probably wonder if it’s her imagination or reality. alligators in the house, that’s just silly.
Many vintage eggcups have passed through our shop. But we recently acquired an old stock of them in their original packaging. Packaging (and their knit hats) make us love them even more.

Kind of neglected this blog.
But I think I am finally coming out of this, all last week I was sick. It’s so difficult when one of us is out of commission we rely so much on each other in taking care of the kids and also running Three Potato Four. I think we used the word “chaos” a lot last week, but we’re through it and are glad it didn’t hit us during the busy holiday season.
Giving you a peek into the making of a *new product* coming exclusively to Three Potato Four very soon – from our friends Something’s Hiding in Here…
