Pump Up the Volume The Pitch: OK, so last week I said I had a Rick Springfield eight-track tape back in the '80s and two people wrote to tell me that was not possible, because eight-tracks were defunct by then. Perhaps I was just checking to make sure you're reading or I simply "misremembered" the '80s. I'm sure I'm not the only person who forgets part of that decade. Well this CD from Sound Promotions (asi/88226) will bring back some memories. Item NET-244 is a collection of rock hits from that decade, featuring artists like the Eurythmics, Rick Astley, Hall and Oates and many more. This is a fun idea for theme parties and other special events like reunions. Pricing starts at: 25; $9.65-R. Click here: www.pvtlabel.com/. The Bottom Line: On the record.
Sleek & Chic The Pitch: Call me simple (you wouldn't be the first), but I just tried out our new ladies' room here at ASI and it's awesome. I mean it. It's very swanky. This, too, is swanky in my opinion. You know those purse hooks, which hold your purse off the ground so it doesn't get all dirty and germy? WellMyTagAlongs Inc. (asi/72779) offers their Croco Collection. These high-quality collapsible purse hooksattach to any surface and they come with a protective pouch. Pricing starts at: 100; $11-P. For more info, email Jeannie: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: I'm hooked.
Cabana Boy The Pitch: It's the perfect time to think about summer promotions and Passion Plus Limited (asi/76409) offers a lovely little beach cabana/tent that's constructed with flame-retardant nylon material and a frame of shock-cord fiberglass poles. It measures five feet by six feet. Pricing starts at: 300; $16-R. I happen to think this would be a wonderful giveaway at company picnics. It's different, right? Now if they could only include a handsome cocktail servant. Email: info@PassionPlusPromos.com. The Bottom Line: Set up camp.
Windy City The Pitch: Wow, the winds were really whippin' out there this morning. Pro Golf Premiums Inc. (asi/79680)offers the perfect topper for windy-day play: It's their newSupersoft Windshirt, which provides comfort and protection on the course. If you're like my husband, you'll wear it off the course too (he loves those things). I do declare, I love it in Scarlet. For pricing and other info, email: email@example.com. To check it out, click here: www.progolfpremiums.com. The Bottom Line: To top it all off.
