Would you spend upwards of $500 on a pair of flip-flops? Maybe not, but plenty of people do and young Hollywood is leading the charge.
Yes, those $1.99 beach shoes have become the fashion item of the day and some cost more then the monthly rent on our first apartment. Kids (male and female) wear them everywhere, including to the prom. Perhaps you have already taken advantage of the flip-flop craze and are hosting demos and makit-takits, and even classes to show cash impaired, but style conscious customers, how to embellish their own flip-flops with all kinds of cool stuff from your store.
Or maybe you have shown these same customers (and hundreds of their friends) what they can do to make their cell phones, BlackBerrys and Sidekicks as fashionable as they are. In addition to demos and classes on how to make cell phone charms and danglers, you can also show creative shoppers how to add sparkle with stick on jewels.
And now the item of the day to decorate is the iPod. Why just personalize your music when you can personalize your iPod as well? You can add iPod skins, tattoos, graphic clings or tiny costumes.
Yep. iAttire, a California company, will be more than happy to sell you hand-made dress up clothes for your iPod. How about a tiara, cowboy hat, pirate costume or even a hat an scarf for those chilly days?
