Drink Up The Pitch: There were lots of reasons to celebrate this weekend at the Huston house: Matt's college graduation, Andrew's senior prom, Mother's Day ... for celebrations everywhere, Crown Products (asi/47700) offers the brand-new Silipint. According to the supplier, it's the world's first 16-oz. silicone pint glass and it's indestructible. "You can
dishwash it, nuke it, freeze it, bake in it, bounce it and even run over it with your car," they say. Plus, it's made of 100% food-grade silicone and is FDA approved, BPA free and non-toxic. You can get it for as low as $7.99-Cand shipping starts June 1. Pitch it to your bar clients. It's also great for any summer party or event. See it here: http://www.crownprod.com/. The Bottom Line: Pass the pint.
That's Fresh The Pitch: I have an air freshener hanging in my car (Little Red) at all times. It just makes scents (get it?). But really, any company or organization could advertise very inexpensively by giving out air fresheners that can be hung in cars, lockers, closets and anywhere. Superex (asi/90231) offers various shapes and scents such as: rosemary/mint, lavender/eucalyptus and tea tree/citrus. For pricing and other info, click here: http://us.superex.com/. The Bottom Line: What smells so good?
Flamingo Fun The Pitch: When I saw this, I knew I had to share it with my buddies. It's the totally adorable T-Wild Flamingo Fun Pen from Targetline (a Fields Company/asi/90640). It has a glittery translucent barrel and silicone feathers. This would be perfect for zoos and souvenir shops, travel destinations and more. Pricing starts at: 100; $2.78-C. Check it out: http://targetline.com/. The Bottom Line: A fine, feathered friend.
Look Sharp The Pitch: Here's a cool idea for your corporate clients from Vantage Apparel (asi/93390). The supplier now offers tagless private labeling so your clients can literally make the garments their own. You can read about the various options here: http://vantageapparel.com/. The Bottom Line: Best-dressed.
