So the show wiped me out more than I expected and I’m running a day late, but here is my report on the Housewares Show – most of these things are not items I will be carrying, but they are things that caught my eye for one reason or another.
I posted this on my FB page, but the FoodPod by fusionbrands amuses me to no end. It looks to me like some alien craft or creature, but is used to cook and drain foods in one step. (Picture copyright, fusionbrands)
Hobby Holster – ok, no great surprise that I like this little gadget. These are silicone holders that will cling to a smooth surface without adhesive. What I REALLY like is that I can put my hot glue gun right into the pocket or onto the flat surface without an issue and (I’m told) any glue that drops onto it will peel right off. I’m sold. They also make a more general line – Lil’ Holster. Considering making these available, just because I like them so much – what do you think? Let me know.
Charles Viancin – these are some super nifty silicon lids that create airtight, water-tight seals and can be used in the microwave, stove top and refrigerator. They are all nature themed and beautiful. I am absolutely in love with these.
SnapIt screw – this is a great idea for any of us who wear glasses. An eyeglass repair kit – the screw is extra long with the bottom unthreaded, so it drops through and holds in place while you screw it in. That way you aren’t struggling to keep the screw in place. Brilliant.
BluApple is an interesting idea. This little blue apple holds a replaceable packet that is designed to absorb ethylene gas for 3 months, thereby extending the shelf life of your produce. I am trying one out now. If it works, it is a great money saver. I will let you know!
Ok – there are more fun things that I will post as I keep sifting through everything I brought home – and things I am absolutely going to be adding to the product line. If there is something here that you would like me to carry, let me know!
