Your startup, MoralEyes, donates a pair of glasses for every pair you sell. With that in mind, how do you plan to financially compete with your competitors? JS: For starters, we have a great product—high-quality, fashionable reading glasses at a competitive price point. The difference between MoralEyes and our competitors is, Sachi™ Kora Totes New for 2011, Hannon Group Ltd., parent company for Sachi Insulated Fashion, introduced a new "Fashion Value" line called Kora. "We've cre- ated Kora to give our grocery and drug store retail partners an alternative to Sachi that hits a $9.99 to $12.99 retail price point," notes Patrick Welch, Sales Manager. He adds: "Like Sachi, the Kora bags will keep food hot or cold for hours. This line will have a focus on fun and vibrant patterns and colors."

Well get ready, because they're not only going to be the hot gift this holiday season, they're about to become the "next big thing." Boom Boom! Cards are a very sim- ple concept with a very modern twist. Think of it as "pay it forward" for the 21st century. Each kit has a deck of 26 cards and each card has a nice action to do for someone else like, "Buy a stranger a cup of coffee." Players "play" the card by doing the action. Once that's done, players then go to the companion website to post the story of what happened; pictures and video can be uploaded too.

While they are few and far between, Maine Woolens in Brunswick, Maine is trying to bring manufacturing jobs back home.

Americans need to realign their sense of value and pur- chase products that support the U.S. economy … even though that may mean spending a little more. Maine Lisa Lowenstein, Art Director and Co-Founder of Made in Museum, discusses the ephiphany she had while living in Rome, Italy in 1997, working as a marketing consultant in the Vatican Museums. OSD: What happened at the Vatican? LL: While consulting on a marketing strategy project for a supplier to the museum's shops, my research showed most products were designed for the captive internal market of the museums, not for distribution. After one particular day spent following the tourist Oser Show Daily spoke with Constance Sherman, Chief Cooling Officer for Hot Girls Pearls. OSD: Tell us about your company.

She now operates a 6,000 square-foot factory in Kentucky, where she and her staff are com- mitted to keeping their wares made in the U.S.A. They've recently taken one more step in contributing to the welfare of their community by using fabric remnants, vintage and used materials in the manufacturing of their goods.
