Howdy, y’all. Did you know a groundhog is also called a land beaver? Yes, that’s your random fact of the day. We had one in our yard last week and he caused quite the ruckus. Haven’t seen him again though. Maybe he found a better yard to dig up. Well, let’s dig up some sales with these new ideas. Enjoy! Send your feedback directly to me: It may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine. For free information on products featured in Advantages, click here: –Kathy Huston, editor

Drink Up
The Pitch: Logomark (asi/67866) has tons of great items on sale, including a 24-oz. glass decanter with a 10-oz. glass that also acts as the lid, so cats named Sneakers do not get into my nighttime water. It’s on clearance at 50% off, so suggest it for holiday gifts and loyalty programs. Check it out here:
The Bottom Line: Keep it covered.

What’s Poppin’?
The Pitch: When I write this enewsletter, I usually haven’t eaten yet, so naturally, when I happened upon single bags of cheese popcorn from Admints & Zagabor (asi/31516), I had to bring it up. Now I’m craving cheese popcorn. You can get them for as low as $1.31 and that includes a four-color laminated decal on the clear bag. These are perfect for trade shows and special events.

The Bottom Line: In the bag.

Just Chillin’
The Pitch: Oh yes, I need this item too. Ad-N-Art (asi/31518) offers brand-new Imperial Wine drinkware. The vacuum-insulated, stainless steel wine cup keeps wine cold longer, no cubes necessary. It comes in a variety of spiffy colors and is gift boxed. For pricing and to check it out, click here:
The Bottom Line: It’s wine o’clock somewhere.

Fun To A Tee
The Pitch: According to Advantages’ July “Big Markets” issue, education-related clients are the number-two buyer of ad specialties. Here’s a nifty twist on your typical T-shirt, which is always a staple for this demographic. Mecky Tee (asi/90333) offers preshrunk, combed ringspun cotton T-shirts with customizable pockets. These would work well for school fundraisers and team events. Check out their catalog here:
The Bottom Line: Sew up sales.
