Kingdom Come The Pitch: We saw "The King's Speech" last night and I really enjoyed it! Go see it; it's not a stuffy old British movie. It's really quite delightful. Here's a product that's fit for a king from King Castle Bags Inc. (asi/64858): Item IC-6030 is a 600-denier polyester deluxe trolley rolling and foldable insulated cooler bag with a large main compartment, front zippered pocket and side mesh pocket. The supplier suggests using this for picnics, festivals and concerts and I agree. This is also a great idea for any of your travel-related clients in beachy areas, which is where I wish I was now. Pricing starts at: 50; $35.40-R. It comes in a variety of colors, including royal blue (of course!). Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Keys to the castle.
Beauty Buzz The Pitch: As editors, we get all kinds of press releases and I just got an email about the burgeoning beauty business. It says that the U.S. cosmetic and toiletries sector generated more than $10 billion in revenue last year from 13,000 beauty-centered stores nationwide, according to Ibis World Reports. There sure must be a lot of purty people walking around. To keep things looking lovely,Snugz USA (asi/88060) offers a brand-new DivaZ Kit, which contains berry lip shine (ZDLGST), 1-oz. SPF 30 sunscreen (ZDSUN10), and 1-oz. shimmer lotion (ZDL10) in clear zippered bag (ZGS4). This would be perfect for resorts, ski lodges, salons and spas and more. Pricing starts at: 100; $8.09-R. Check it out: http://www.snugzusa.com/. The Bottom Line: A shining example.
Artistic Endeavor The Pitch: These are unique for any audience:Eco friendly, out-of-the-box wallets from EZ Duz It by Elliott (asi/53454)are inspired by the designer's love for art, poetry and music. Themes include: "Art Music," "Stop (sign)" and "60s Buttons." Don't they sound fun? Pricing starts at: 12; $40-P. Click here: http://www.ezduzitbyelliott.com/art-wallets_085F.html. The Bottom Line: Designer dollars.
Dog Days The Pitch: Bundle up and remember to do the same with your pets. Even Mr. Whiskers gets cabin fever in winter and also has to get his business done from time to time, if you know what I mean. Dress pets for cold and snow with a pet jacket made from 100% cotton from Royal Promotional Products Inc. (asi/82690). The size can be adjusted according to your request and a logo can be embroidered or silk-screened. Pricing starts at:2000; $7.74-T. Think pet stores, vets, groomers and then some. Email: email@example.com. The Bottom Line: They're begging for it.
