Where we make it is why it’s good. It’s a real place. It’s a way of life. And it’s a heritage that we work to live up to every day. Its roots are in a special part of the world called Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, but its appeal is universal and its popularity is spreading. Food is an important part of our life here, and it’s always been that way. The Pennsylvania Dutch are famous for home cooking with homegrown ingredients. You can count on Lancaster County meals to be hearty and wholesome, made from scratch, and served with pride. Some people say we save the best for last, with our freshly baked cakes, pies, and cookies – and, of course, any one of the rich, creamy frozen desserts fresh from Turkey Hill Dairy.

One of the most colorful, eye-catching, and fun party items is a Helium-filled Balloon. But, what most families don’t realize is that balloons can be dangerous. Young children have been known to choke on ordinary latex balloons; whether they are unfilled or deflated. Little kids think balloons are “play-toys” (which, they are not), and they like to chew on them. Naturally, parents demand “safety” when it comes to products intended for family use.

That’s why CREATIVE BALLOONS MFG. INC. (Carmel, CA) designed its E-Z Safety Seal ® Ribbon Valved Balloon, available to consumers nationwide in the award-winning American-made, YANKEE DOODLE DANDY ® E-Z BALLOON KIT ®. Two sizes of the kit can be purchased at Smart & Final and Gordon Foods (20 balloons or 50 balloons), plus a portable, recyclable tank filled with helium. This is the ONLY helium balloon kit in the country that features the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 “Approved” E-Z Safety Seal ® Ribbon Valved Balloon (which prevents choking if ingested). All components of the product (balloon, valve, ribbon, helium tank) have been safety-tested by an Independent Laboratory. Creative Balloons Mfg. Inc. cautions families to supervise children under 8 years of age.

Sock Grams was born out of the desire to send a greeting to a loved one, along with a small gift. We often found ourselves wanting to send a greeting card, to celebrate an important milestone our friends and loved ones reached, but we wanted to send a little something more than just a card. We also wanted to ensure the gift would last and, most importantly, be in acknowledgement of something that was important or of interest to the person we were giving it to. Novelty socks, in the myriad of patterns and colors were our answer!!! We found a world of novelty socks that fit all areas of interest, patterns and colors. We found so many that were fun, fashionable and downright humorous! With the artistic talent of friends at Brainmusic Design we’ve developed our own greeting cards for you to choose from. We wanted to make sure our customers could personalize these gifts, so we include a component to add personalized greetings and/or salutations. In our search to make the Sock Gram package special and add a pampering component, we found a Medi-Spa Foot Balm. In each Sock Gram we include a .25 fl oz packet of Foot Balm. This Foot Balm was developed more than 60 years ago, specifically to treat feet. It can help relieve pressure of swollen and tired feet and speed healing of blisters and minor abrasions. So, what does a Sock Gram include? Your personally chosen novelty socks – as many pairs as you’d like to send. One specially chosen greeting card, with a personal message, if you so choose. One .25 fl oz packet of Foot Balm. Your specially wrapped gift with tissue paper inside a durable, waterproof, blue metallic envelope.

When my daughter, Kayla, was 2 years old, she was very sick and none of her doctors knew why she was ill, or how to help her. She had the white blood cell count of a child with cancer, and it devastated our family. After a year of medication, surgery, and countless tests, it was discovered that she suffered from a condition called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Disorder. Kayla is essentially allergic to many of the chemicals found in my home and yours. She got better after removing all of the chemicals from our home. Unfortunately, all of the car care products we found were toxic to people and the environment, and Kayla would have a negative reaction whenever we had our car washed. That’s why my husband and I created Lucky Earth!At Lucky Earth, our goal is to provide the highest quality car care products that are safe for you and the environment. Lucky Earth “waterless” products are so simple to use, and at only a couple bucks per wash, Lucky Earth helps you save money, save time, and save water!
