Over the summer, I cleaned out my grandfather’s house. He had accumulated a lot of furniture over the years, and I thought it would be a challenge to unload it all. I had never used Facebook Marketplace before, but I figured that would be a good place to start. Boy was it ever: I was shocked at how quickly everything went.
The demand for furniture is booming right now, specifically furniture that can be used in a home office. I ended up selling several very old tables to people who said they planned to use them as desks. And the traditional swivel chair in my grandfather’s office was snatched up in an instant.
I was reminded of this process by an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal: “Available: Thousands of Discounted Herman Miller Chairs for Your Home Office.” After being forced to work from home in ersatz home offices for half a year now, people are desperate for chairs that are not unpleasant to sit on hour after hour, day after day. The high demand means that finding affordable, sturdy and comfortable office chairs has become nearly impossible through the traditional channels, so home workers have started descending on liquidator warehouses. The thinking is: if they can’t get a chair brand new, perhaps they can get their hands on a chair that had once been used in a now empty corporate office. This works well for the liquidators, who discount the furniture, no longer having a steady supply of corporate offices to sell them to.
So, if you’ve been chugging through your work on the same rickety chair for the past six months, seek out your local liquidators. You will surely get a better deal than the $1,400 a classic Herman Miller Aeron chair will set you back on Amazon:
You are also guaranteed to have it in your possession immediately, something that is certainly not the case when it comes to ordering furniture online these days. With regard to the Aeron chair, Amazon currently only has the Size A (25.75 x 25.75 x 38.5″) in stock, leaving you out of luck if you need the Size B (27 x 27 x 41″) or Size C (18.5 x 28.2 x 43″) anytime soon. And even the Size A inventory is running out… Picking up a chair in person is probably your best bet.

At $9, This Silly Plush Turkey Hat Is A Must-Own
In 2022, Santa hats are out. Silly turkey hats are in.
I was on Amazon looking for things to do over Thanksgiving with relatives (eventually landing on the brand new game Christmas Categories) when I came across this:
My first thought was that it creates the perfect opportunity for someone in the family to recreate the classic Monica turkey head scene from Friends:
Then I realized that there are many ways you can have fun with the turkey hat Thanksgiving. When you play games, you can decide in advance that the loser has to wear the turkey hat. Or perhaps you can start a tradition that whoever carves the turkey each year gets to wear the turkey hat. The possibilities are endless!
No matter how you are spending the holiday this year (with funny turkey hat, or sans funny turkey hat), the We Know Products team wishes you a very happy Thanksgiving!
Keep Comfort Within Arm’s Reach With NAIPO’s New Handheld Massager
If you go on Amazon and search for “handheld massager,” you will find dozens and dozens of clones of the same $100 massage gun. My immediate reaction upon seeing this was that there is no longer any innovation in the massager industry. Instead of actually investing in R&D to come up with more advanced ways to help customers, massager companies seem content to copy one another and compete on price.
One company gives me hope. That company is NAIPO, a well-known massager brand whose stated mission is to help people all over the world “Find Well-being.” NAIPO’s latest handheld massager features a brand new design that provides added value for the user. While it is still a percussion massager, its sleek comfort-grip handle grants access to otherwise inaccessible areas of the body. It also features 5 interchangeable massager heads so that you are able to treat each acupuncture point with the best possible massage.
This attention to detail creates a truly customizable experience. After a workout or just a long day at work, you can choose from 5 different speed levels and 5 different working modes, from gentle relaxation to vigorous, deep-tissue massage. By virtue of the extended front grip, you can give exactly the right type of massage to previously neglected muscles all over your body.
A common complaint about percussion massagers is the noise level that can make it awkward or even impossible to use in public. The new NAIPO handheld massager is different. Unlike its competitors, it provides amazing results with only a single massage head. This has the twin effect of reducing noise levels and making it lighter and therefore less unwieldy, a huge plus especially for older users.
The NAIPO XF-5120 handheld massager will be available for purchase soon, and at $52.99 it is inarguably cheaper than similar products on the market. You get your very own either at NAIPO’s own storefront on naipocare.com or on Walmart.com. Stay tuned for more updates!
