Scooping Bowl was designed by Tyler Peoples who is a professional chef. He has designed this go to kitchen product to help at-home chefs create spectacular dishes faster, cleaner, and more effectively. With its patent-pending spatula assembly, the ingredients will be removed from the All-in-one scooping bowl.
It will leave the bowl ready and clean to mix up more kitchen magic with just one smooth movement. No more searching through cluttered kitchen drawers for a rubber spatula that is too clumsy to use anyway. Wash and strain vegetables, or separate eggs, or use as a serving bowl where two different creations in the same bowl will allow you to hold by the seal tight spatula!
The bowl features simple double handles, it is BPA free, crafted in lightweight, durable plastic and a built-in contoured spatula.

The Wallet Buckle was created out of necessity by brother duo Trevor and Justin. Trevor never liked carrying his wallet and always wore belt buckles. He frequently started misplacing his wallet by taking it out of his pocket. The Wallet Buckle’s foundation was created!
After countless iterations of the product, the brother duo has perfected the design and the patent process was started!
All Wallet Buckles are embellished and finished in their office in Walnut Creek, CA.
Everything started with a Kickstarter campaign gathering almost $45,000 in 2016.
