Ever wondered where all the dot-com schwag went? Remember the good ol' days of late 90s start-up fanaticism where promo items such as Razorfish tea cozies and Pets.com kitty litter scoops were handed out like communion? Dot-com nostalgia has hit home with UK based artists Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead's latest project, "Dot-Store". The site offers Google Tea Towels that show search results of "Is anybody there?" as well as temporary tattoo's of the web's finest "Under Construction" graphics. Search the store alongside the artist's fake pop-under ads and you can purchase everything from other people's e-cards, to lenticular badges of animated cursors, to custom ringtones for your mobile like "silent_ringtone" and "young_father" (designed for single parents). If that's not enough, next September they'll be auctioning off the site and it's remaining products on Ebay. -Jonah Brucker-Cohen
