Rosemalled Box - Valued At $300
by Levente Sütő

Artist Bio: A 14th generation Transylvanian-Hungarian furniture maker, Levente creates vivid hand-painted Vargyas floral carvings for the home and special occasions, including elaborate boxes, children’s furniture for baptisms, and the carved wooden headstones specific to the Carpathian basin of Hungary.

Using organic paints, made by mashing minerals on stone plates to create the rich colors, Levente creates harmoniously-proportioned designs carrying deep symbolism.

His family’s works are used in many places— the carvings are found inside churches, on furniture in homes, on the decorative boxes given at celebrations, and even on household items such as washboards and gates.

Valued at $1500

A revolution in triking.

The Rover has introduced more people to triking than any other recumbent trike on the market. It has also restored health and happiness to thousands of owners who never thought they would be active again. The Rover is TerraTrike's number one selling trike, and is perfect for any type of rider - young or old, large or small.

That's a pretty bold statement for a trike with a starting price lower than almost any other trike on the market. Its success, however, lies in its reliability and usability. Featuring one of the strongest frames in the TerraTrike lineup, and a high seat position, the Rover is perfect for anyone who needs a sturdy, no-nonsense machine. The Rover is also TerraTrike's most versatile trike, ideal for riders with adaptive needs. The Rover features disc brakes, an easily adjustable seat, and twist grip shifting.

If you are ready to experience the joy of riding a TerraTrike, the Rover is the perfect way to make the leap. The Rover has changed the triking world, and it will change yours too.
