Snark Tank: Garden Gnomies
8/14/2013 7:40:00 AM
Everyone loves garden gnomes. They're cute, adorable, and pretty harmless.
But some of them? Whew. They have a serious attitude. In fact, some of them are straight up dangerous. Those are the Garden Gnomies.
What started as a hobby has now turned into a potential business. Caleb Zammit is the brains and brawn behind the Gnomies. During the day he's an autism social skills and resource teacher at A.I.S.D. But at night he's working on these little sculptures of garden badassery.
The Austin Toy Museum, something that Caleb is working on, is holding a gofundme and giving away some cool prizes if you donate to the cause. Part of his mission is to raise money so he can make more Gnomies for all of us. But if you're interested in getting one now, you can purchase them online.
Here's the old Kickstarter video:
Sad news though: Caleb's little dog is missing. He was lost around the Jester area, so if you spot him, please let us know.
