A paperweight from the gift shop at the Monterey Bay Aquarium reminds visitors of awe-inspiring jellies.
The Jellies Experience, a new science exhibit opening March 31 at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, Calif., likens the oceans’ pulsing jellies to dancers in a psychedelic rock show. Glass paperweights ($43–$180) sold at the gift shop capture their beauty. (866) 963-9645, montereybayaquarium.org.
Getting outdoors didn’t always require an engineered backpack complete with inner suspension and hydration systems. KnappSacks return to basics. Alex Buck crafts each bag ($80) in his Bozeman, Mont., workshop. Clients drop in to choose colors and see him work—unless he’s on the trail himself. (406) 599-3488, buckproducts.com.
