This sleek table is one of the most interesting outdoor furniture pieces we've seen. The Picnik Table, designed by Dirk Wynants, is made of 1cm thick aluminum and is one solid piece. The powder-coated finish - which is available in 5 different colors - is extremely durable, and will hold up very well even under heavy use. It is actually quite small, but this makes it ideal for two people, which very few outdoor picnic-type tables are actually intended to accommodate, not without having unused seating for 6 or 8 more people, anyway. It can also fit on a porch or even a balcony with little difficulty. If you do require seating for more than two, two tables can be placed with the open ends together to make seating for four. Price: $1,700.

Every year, Warren Buffett offers up the opportunity to have lunch with him in an auction that benefits the Glide Foundation. The tradition of auctioning a lunch began in 2004, when Buffett first became involved with the San Francisco nonprofit, which offers programs to help the poor, hungry and homeless. In early years, lunches often sold for $25-30,000, but when they switched the auctions onto eBay in 2003, making them much more visible, the numbers shot up dramatically. Last year's lunch with Warren sold for $351,100.
The auction will begin on June 22 and the starting price is $25,000.

This bag is from the same spring line that produced the Mattie Wedge Sandal and I just can't get enough of that adorable appliqued bee! He is again featured on this beautiful Coach tote. The SoHo Optic Applique Lunch Tote has a metallic, summery sheen to its white, logo-print fabric and the leather trim is lightweight, so it won't weight the bag down as you are out in the heat. The tote also comes in a lilac fabric, with a purple bug detail instead of a bee. Price: $348.
