Talk to Me The Pitch:
Granted, this deal won't bring you as much moola as if you got divorced from
an ex-Beatle, but every little bit helps. You know those big red push-activated
sound buttons that talk to you? Well, Clegg
Industries Inc. (asi/45450) is offering item DB7200
at "way below EQP." A 10-second
custom message can be recorded and it comes with three AAA batteries. Mention
deal #080106. Web address: www.cleggonline.com. Expires 3/31/08. The Bottom Line: Push it.
Get Your Game
On The Pitch: Tomorrow
is the start of spring (I am taking the day off; aren't you happy for me?).
Obviously, golf tournaments and golf-related outings and events will really
be springing up too, here where we actually have four seasons. Seville
Corporation (asi/86565) offers item SN-GBC16, the
Cooler Caddy Jr. It looks like a mini golf bag that perhaps a mini Tiger
Woods would be carrying (if he was about 18 inches tall). It has a fully
insulated main compartment with heat-sealed liner and holds six cans, plus
ice. It also has outside pockets and an adjustable shoulder strap. Sales
pricing is: Qty.-24; list price-$11.95; price code-R. Web
address: www.sevillegear.com. Expires
3/31/08. The Bottom Line: Chill on the course
Some Bunny Loves
You The Pitch: Famous
rabbits: Bugs, of course; then there's the Easter Bunny (making his way to
your basket this Sunday); and now, Firstpoint
International (asi/54405) presents Robbie the Rabbit,
debuting in their "All About Vegetables" coloring and activity book. Item
CB1061 is full of jokes and fun facts for kids, such as the popular notion
that carrots actually help you see in the dark. Believe it or not, kids aren't
as opposed to eating their veggies as you might think. A group of boys in
my son's middle school recently lobbied to have a salad bar in the cafeteria
and they got one! Think about schools as a great target market. Pricing starts
at: Qty.-250; list price-62 cents; price code-R.
Web address: www.asisupplier.com/54405. The Bottom Line: Healthy fun.
Jitters The Pitch: I
love coffee, but even just the smell of it makes me feel cozy and comfy.
Starbucks is waking up to the fact that lots of people love the smell of
coffee and they're going back to freshly grinding the beans in their cafes
to ensure the aroma permeates (and propels profits, which have plummeted). Custom
HBC Corp. (asi/47934) just so happens to have coffee-scented
candles. Item #16300-021 is a larger version, decorated with real coffee
beans. And this is a cute idea: Each pillar candle is packaged in a real
coffee bag. This would be a nice gift for new homeowners from Realtors, and
a creative giveaway for diners, cafes and bookstores. And how about any type
of group that holds breakfast meetings? Pricing starts at: Qty.-10;
list price-$17.48; price code-R. Web address: www.customhbc.com. The Bottom Line: Wake up and smell the coffee.
