Products for Planners:
(nostalgia theme party sweets) With a surge in all things retro, this is the
perfect time to visit the Candy Warehouse, where you can not only order the
candy you love today, you can also order the candy you loved as a child.
However, since it is a "warehouse" if you want the Squirrel Nut Zippers, you'll have to order a box of 72 for $12.96. That makes it ideal to stock up for that next snack attack or to offer clients as an option on their next nostalgia theme party. It's the exact type of product that will set you ahead of the pack of other planners who don't think about such details (or know where to find them!).
More sites that offer old tyme treats:
Countdown Clock This is a super gift for a planner or supplier to give a client upon landing the job to help build the excitement as the event date draws near. It's also ideal for a bridal couple, graduate, expectant parents or other celebrant counting the days until their "big event." Click here!
Neon USA (http://www.neonusa.com) is Phyllis's secret weapon for planning spectacular, over-the-top events. Along with their battery-operated neons (perfect for events where electrical outlets are limited or avoiding ugly electrical cords), they have great spandex linens, panels, centerpieces, props and incredible theme collections. And, since they are all rentals, you won't be making a large investment. They are constantly adding new products, so visit them often. Since they ship worldwide, you'll want them for your next high power event. Just tell Bernie that Phyllis Cambria recommended him.
