Screw This

Fosters

The wine-cork DIY trivet -- an invention that requires you to drink eight bottles of wine.

SCREWY: Q: How genius is this trivet that works with recycled wine corks? A: Very. And you can even use it as a corkscrew in a pinch. Just remember that real corks will protect your table from a hot pot – but those newfangled plastic numbers will likely melt. $11 from Fosters.

TABLE FOR ONE: When the longtime husband of Judith Jones – publishing legend, and the woman who discovered Julia Child and edited her book “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” – passed away, her relationship to cooking (inevitably) shifted. In her book “The Pleasures of Cooking for One” (Knopf) she details just that: The joys of preparing food for and dining with yourself. $22.36 at Strand Bookstore, 828 Broadway at 12th Street; 212-473-1452.

OLD WORLD: Through October 13, deals will abound at the From Around the World Vintage Archive: The source – which has mostly been an industry secret and usually doesn’t deal directly with the public – is turning 10 and taking 50-75% off its heaping trove of high-end, hard-to-find vintage apparel and accessories, with prices starting as low as (gulp) $10. 209 West 38th Street; 212-354-6536.
