Circle of Friends The Pitch: Since I'm in CA, my buddy C.J. Mittica, editor of Wearables magazine, is proofing this edition for me. Thanks, C.J.! We all get by with a little help from our friends and Zenith Promotions (asi/98980) has new cloth friendship bracelets. They would be fun for teen-type parties, concerts, camps and more. Pricing starts at: one for $3 and you can see them here: http://funplacetreasures.com/. The Bottom Line: Tied together.
Beer Here The Pitch: It's American Craft Beer Week and events are being held all around the USA. It's always a good time for a nice cold brew, no matter if there's an official week for it or not,
especially with the warm-weather events and activities being planned. AlightPromos.com offers light-up frosted beer steins, which hold 20 oz. and include three replaceable AAA batteries. These are great for summer bar promotions. Pricing (5 working days) starts at: 250; $4.65. Click here: http://www.alightpromos.com/. The Bottom Line: Bottoms up!
Over Your Head The Pitch: I had my hair cut on Friday the 13th and fortunately, there was no bad luck associated with it. If Sandy my hairdresser slipped up, however, Sun N Sand Accessories Inc. (asi/90142) offers plenty of fun and fabulous summer hats for bad hair days. One example is item HH532, a packable, crushable crocheted hat with floral trim. It's perfect for resort shops. Pricing starts at one for $18.70. For more information, check it out on ESP or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Sunny style.
Parental Control The Pitch: Promotional Slideguide Corp. (asi/79930) has the perfect product for day-care centers, new parent baskets, bookstores and more. Item PKM-35 is the "ABC's of Good Parenting" bookmark.Each letter of the alphabet starts a sentence on giving children love and guidance (I don't see "don't give your 8-year-old Botox treatments" on there, but maybe they should add it. Did you hear about that nutball mother?). Pricing starts at: 250; 47 cents. Email: email@example.com. The Bottom Line: Mark the spot.
