The Takeaway The Pitch: If there's one thing we always take from bars (besides matches), it's the cardboard coasters. I can't tell you how many coasters we have on our bar at home from Cheeseburger in Paradise. Add scents to this powerful marketing mechanism and you can make a lot of dollars and even more of a branding impact. Canada Coaster (asi/43678)offers scented coasters, which I happen to think is pretty cool. For pricing and other info and to see their products, go here: www.canadacoaster.com. The Bottom Line: A scentsible solution.
Make a Run for It The Pitch: After reading this morning about yet another blizzardy storm system hitting parts of the country, I'm positive there are plenty of people who want to escape to somewhere sunny and warm (I'm talking to you, Jen Vishnevsky ... have fun in Jamaica; I'm jealous!). Fiorentina LLC (asi/54295) has soft textured leather passport covers with the word "Passport" blind-embossed on the front. It comes in awesome colors too: black, red, cobalt blue, pearlized green, pink and orange. Pricing starts at: one for $16-R. Click here: http://www.fiorentinaltd.com/. The Bottom Line: Stylish traveler.
What's Cookin', Good Lookin'? The Pitch: I have a sign at home that says, "I enjoy cooking with wine; sometimes I even put it in the food." Hey, whatever makes the chef happy, I say!Happy Chef Uniforms (asi/59610) offers stylish chef's wear to make any chef more content in the kitchen. I'll put their website link here so you can see all their apparel and accessories, which are great for restaurants and cooking schools. And I like theunisex executive chef coat with a tailored European fit. Item HFR5 starts at: one for $39.50-P. Check it out: http://www.happychefuniforms.com/. The Bottom Line: Come on, get happy.
Litter Bug The Pitch: In my rockin' red minivan, I use the plastic grocery store bags for my trash. It looks a little ... well, trashy. Wouldn't it be great if all auto-dealers, detailers, repair shops, etc. gave outthis reusable car litter bagmade from 420 denier terylene? It's from Spot 25 Inc. (asi/88883) and I think you should suggest it to your clients. Pricing starts at: 3000; $4.49-T. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Hang it up.
