What do Beethoven, Justin Bieber, Brad Pitt, Keanu Reeves and Ned Flanders have in common? These characters are all men (yes, Justin Bieber also) and also…lefties.
Lefty’s is a one-of-a-kind store that sells everything for the left handed. If you’re a lefty like myself, you’ll know how impossible it is to write on a spiral-bound notebook or how inevitable it is not to fill your hand with graphite/ink while writing for long periods of time. Lefty’s has been thinking about all these situations for a while and has come with solutions that will make the left-handed cooler and happier.
The store offers a wide selection of articles like guitars that will make Kurt Cobain drool, measuring cups, curved spoons, rulers with numbers that go from right to left, scissors and can openers exclusively made for lefties and plenty of other interesting articles for people like Angelina Jolie (yes, she’s also a lefty).
One of the most interesting and useful articles I could find in the store was a special pen to avoid ink stains in your hand while writing, ergonomic pencils and a spiral-bound notebook -with the spirals on the right side-.
Lefty’s has two locations in the US. If you’re in the West Coast you can go to Pier 39 in San Francisco, California to find the main store.
On the other hand, if you live in the East Coast, there’s a little kiosk @ Downtown Disney -in Orlando, Florida- where you can find a limited selection of products.
