Crave giveaway: Two Alchemy Goods bags made from recycled bike tires
This week, we have two unique bags, with stuff inside: an iBattz battery case for the iPhone 6, a set of Moshi earbuds and a Sonix iPhone 5/5S case made of vintage vinyl records.

Congratulations to Ron M. of Covington, Ohio, for winning three custom photo products from Collage.com last week.
Can you ever have too many computer bags? We think not -- at least not if they're as unusual as the bags we're giving away this week. We have two of them made from reclaimed bicycle inner tubes, both from Seattle-based Alchemy Goods, which makes a range of products from upcycled gear.
The Mercer Laptop Bag measures 16 inches by 12 inches by 3 inches and holds laptops up to 15 inches in its padded internal sleeve. It has briefcase handles and an adjustable shoulder strap made from a used seatbelt. The slightly smaller Mercer Shoulderbag measures 12x4x10 inches and will happily hold a tablet. The bags are water-resistant and highly durable, and of course, highly hipster.
