A MESSAGE FROM THE BANNER BARON
A friend of mine who hails from the Midwest and shares my affection for what David Allan Coe referred to as “manly footwear”, recently traveled to Houston to buy a custom pair of cowboy boots. Seated in the fitting room of my favorite boot maker, he began wrestling with the boots he was wearing in order to avail his feet for the measuring process. “Worst part of wearing boots,” he lamented. When I suggested that he use a boot jack, his quizzical look told me that the existence of this amazing tool was news to him. In case it’s news to you, this device, constructed with a U-shaped aperture and anchored by your opposing foot, allows you to remove high top boots with one, swift, decisive action. All of the Marsh boys have one. And now, so does my buddy.
My life was similarly altered when I was introduced to the FlipFold, a plastic contraption that practically folds your t-shirts for you. Fans of The Big Bang Theory will recognize it as a favorite of Dr. Sheldon Cooper, who relies on its utility during his weekly laundry night. Which everyone knows is Saturdays at 8:15 PM. OK, maybe not everybody. But everybody in my house knows it.
It might be a bit of an exaggeration to describe our Economy Retractable Banner Stands as life-changing inventions, but for those of you seeking dramatic signage that is lightweight and extremely portable, it will definitely change the way you think about interior displays. Carrying them is also easy on the back and shoulders. And this week, they’re easy on your pocketbook as well.
You might just save enough to buy a FlipFold.
