Big news: SkyMall, the in-flight catalog that showed you everything you didn’;t know you could buy while trapped 30,000 feet up in the air, has filed for bankruptcy. The real news is that it’;s lasted this long. Scott Wiley, acting CEO of Xhibit Corp, the company that produces SkyMall, blames its demise on the rise of all the other distractions allowed on planes now, a.k.a. e-readers, smartphones, and other devices that come with Internet access to hog all the eyeballs. Long adored for items as ridiculous as a wine glass holder necklace and glow-in-the-dark toilet seat, SkyMall’;s endlessly enlightening inventory of course also holds a ton of home decor gems. So in honor of 25 entertaining years of SkyMall, or potentially more as the company looks for a buyer, here are 15 of the most SkyMall products you can still buy for your house.
