Friday Find: Goose Grease

I'm always on the lookout for fun, quirky, handmade gift ideas and this pirates vs. ninjas wooden checkers set from Etsy's Goose Grease fits the bill perfectly! Just check out those wide set eyes and hand painted details:

Isn't it perfect? Checkers not your thing? Well they have a great selection of customized families of dolls, wedding cake toppers, or do it yourself kits! What fun! But it does leave me with one question in mind - which side would you chose, pirates or ninjas?


  1. First off, Pirates. I mean, pshaw, obviously.

    Secondly, your post says it's both a chess set and a checkers set. The only time they ARE the same thing is when a good-for-nothing Ninja enthusiast is trying to trick me because they're losing and I'm drunk. Ninjas are liars.

    Third, a pirate chess set would be pretty freaking sweet.

  2. Neal says ninjas. I say it's a tough call. Ninjas are sneaky and awesome. Pirates are just awesome. And English. Or Somali. So, I don't know.

    Oh, and Neal says that while pirates are cool, the pirates in this set are pretty wimpy. I say they should look more like Johnny Depp. Yeah!

  3. Squee! I adore these! I don't know if I can decide between pirates and ninjas though ... I have love for them all ^_^
