Kaycee Binns

In 1993, Kaycee Binns was waiting tables at a cafe and dreaming of how to follow her dreams of a career in metalsmithing. One day she was invited to a baby shower, and not having a gift to give, she decided to make one herself. Remembering a story her grandmother had told her as a little girl, Kaycee melted down some left over sterling silver and created a rabbit-themed baby spoon.

The spoon was such a hit that she decided to devote herself to her passion full time. Kaycee began creating, making, polishing and shipping her work all by herself, and though it was a lot to handle, her grandfather helped her not give up. Gradually, she began to gain momentum, and her enterprise grew. She still designs all her work herself, though, and all of it is still made in the USA, cast in Rhode Island and hand finished in Atlanta.

Kaycee lives in Atlanta with her husband and two children.

Comments about Notebook Flask:

This flask is great! I've been looking for one that reflects my personal style for a long time, and the composition notebook is perfect. I finally purchased it to sneak alcohol into a cash-bar wedding ($7 for one weak drink? I don't think so!). The 6oz size is more than enough for a lightweight like me, and even provides enough to share. The composition notebook decoration is metal and it appears to be stuck onto the flask well, but only time will tell. I wish it had come with a funnel as many flasks do, to make filling it up easier.

Service and delivery comments:

The flask arrived in good condition, well packaged. Processing of the order could have been faster, and it was delivered the day after USPS said it was expected, but that's USPS's bad, not UG's.

        Very cute little gift for the writer in my life, who also enjoys time with a cocktail or two. Made him laugh right out of the bag and looks very cute on his bar, when he's not toting around with his books.

              This was a great fun gift for one of my close friends. She studies a lot, and I thought it would be a funny way to say, "you work hard, so you should play hard too!"

              Service and delivery comments:

              I wasn't impressed by the speed of delivery. It took 5 business days to arrive, which for me is a long time, but I am probably spoiled by sites like zappos and amazon that can ship to you in one or two days. On the positive side, the item arrived in perfect condition AND in time for Christmas. So, I have no complaints and I would definitely order from this site again.

                        I bought this for my better half who loves the composition notebooks and thinks flasks are cool. It was exactly what the product description said it was and luckily was shipped and received in plenty of time for Christmas. We haven't put it to use but it looks fantastic.

                            I tend to try to think outside the box when it comes to gifts for loved ones. My wife is a writer, and she loved the character Bobby Singer from the show "Supernatural." I teased her that I found a gift that combines her love of writing with her love for Bobby. She was very pleased with the present.

                                      We were so thrilled when Erin found this fun flask, we had to take a moment to compose ourselves. Would you store your favorite spirit in this double gauged stainless steel container?

                                      A reasonable price for a decent item. Target audience may be a bit narrow, but it's a cute item, and the fact that you can write on the lines is a big plus.

                                      If I were to buy a flask, I think this one is great. However, I'm not much of a flask person. Design might be better on a book that lets you keep track of alcohol you've tasted, or drink recipes.

                                      Notebook says school..school says children...children does not say alcohol to me! Even if it is for a 21 year old, alcohol is promoted more than enough all around them, no need to gift wrap a flask to hurry them up on their way to increased alcohol consumption. Don't like it... :(

                                      cute, but don't know many people who carry alcohol around. also worry about the "juvenille" them, wouldn't want any kids to get ahold of it and drink out of it accidentally.

                                      I don't really get it.... and I wouldn't want to promote alcohol when thinking about school. No thanks.

                                      Really, a flask for students. Let's encourage them to drink in class too.

                                      Would not want to promote my college age kids to walk around with this or have it on campus. If caught they would get kicked out!

                                      I'm going to take the "high and mighty" road and say no. Although I do like notebooks and flasks...just not in the same product.

                                      I like it, though I'm well past using composition notebooks in school I still adore them. Anywhere I can get that nostalgic print I'll take it. the flask itself looks rather cheep though. 50/50

                                      I agree with other commenters; I am fond of the classic composition books, but it does seem to suggest drinking in the classroom somehow!

                                      Would students today even recognize the composition book? I think it's a cute bit of nostalgia with a little tongue in cheek... guess it's not for everyone.I'm going to get one for a friend who is a teacher! Don't freak out! I'm sure she will enjoy it responsibly and extracurricularly!

                                      Great adult gift (retirement/50th BD etc).Could be priced a bit lower. I'd never givethis to a college kid

                                      Really not a good idea to mix a representation of being in school (thus underage) with drinking alcohol, ya think? I'm a liberal and I even believe in that one :)

                                      At first I thought this was adorable. Then I realized most students are underage drinkers. Then I wasn't so enthused. I realize it's not aimed at students, but.... they'll find it.
