Homemakers, especially those with children, grandchildren, and other little relations afoot, are diligent about keeping things clean. The urge to sanitize merges with a concern for eco-friendly products that are gentle on people and the planet. Pollutants in the home may not be as obvious as clouds of smoke and smog in the sky, but since there are chemical toxins in homes that impact air supply, it’s smart to use organic products for household cleaning. Educate your customers and become a resource to find these brands that are both organically clean and get the dirty work done: Fields Organics, MomSpit, Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover and Poo-Pourri.

Little Things Mean A Lot

Take an owl, elephant or bird and turn it into a decorative throw pillow that would brighten the corner of any room. These and lots more spring from the workshop of decaf plush, a line of colorful, modern appliquéd floor cushions, pillows, and kids’ clothing made of ultra-soft velveteen, denim, and cotton. decaf plus designs are bright, animated and real stand-outs. Airplanes, a bird on a branch and an elephant add zing to a classic a-line dress in seersucker or 21 wale lightweight corduroy that can be paired with a tee for cooler days. Tees come in a wide range of sizes in designs like whales and fishes, doe a deer, mushrooms and berries.

Getting a retailer to buy your line is great — and especially exciting if the collection is new to the market — but convincing them to reorder should be your ultimate goal. And reorders are always based on how well your goods sold the previous season. If items flew off the racks, buyers will naturally seek you out the next time around. If too much of your line landed in the sale bin, however, your name will likely plummet from their must-shop list. Despite the importance of sell-throughs, it seems vendors sometimes forget the role they have in ensuring their lines take off at retail. Without you, your products are left to fly solo in the face of whatever headwinds come their way…

Elephants and piggies and lions, oh my! With the intense marketing and popularity of animal-shaped pillows, smaller companies selling plush critters might not get the attention they deserve.

Tell your customers it is, in fact, hip to be square by offering them Zooklz, the square animals with attitude.

Babies are messy! New mom Johanna Romaniuk realized just how messy, when her 5-month-old daughter was determined to feed herself; afterwards, the floor was a spillabration! Out of necessity, Johanna made a high chair food catcher that was lightweight, compact and durable. She made it easy to attach, detach, clean and store on the high chair. The high chair food catcher was the beginning of Wupzey, a company dedicated to making products that make life with baby less messy. Wupzey now has a full line of products including car seat covers, high chair covers, bibs, coveralls, floor mats, shopping cart covers and diner covers.

Paula Roeske considered herself a very organized person when she had her first child. She went so far as stack all of his baby food jars by type in her pantry. She did not realize how easily these jars could topple and fall until her 6-month-old son began standing and holding on to her leg. She soon learned the dangers, when one of the glass jars fell and landed on his toe, breaking it. She was so upset, that when she got home with him from the hospital, she searched for baby food organizers and found nothing available. The need for a safe baby food organizer led to the creation of PRK Products, Inc. and the Universal Baby Food Jar Storage & Organizer.
