Home furnishing gifts for students? Scott Koldorn,
manager of Land and Sky, recommends the canopied water
bed-complete with all the trimmings for only $1,100. For
the most economically deprived or those who might have
trouble maneuvering the bed up the residence hall elevators,
Land. and Sky also offers graphics-pictures mounted on
wood, starting at $16. Graphics also are available at Pier I

If one needs a gift for someone who already owns a
waterbed Koldron suggests fake fur spreads, selling at $40,
or a complete outfit of sheets for $33.50. . ,

gift recipient isn't too conventional, floor pillows are a
possibility. These are available in all sizes, shapes, colors

furniture pieces start at $29.99.

radios start at less than $100. Ace also carries accessories
for the CB, including antennas, power microphones and
