My Shopping Tree specializes in personalized products for pets and people, selling collars, charms for collars, and leashes for dogs; halters and their charms, and bridles for horses. For people, the company offers baseball caps, accessory straps for backpacks and purses, and bracelets. “Our newest product is the Tuscan Leather Bracelet with Interchangeable Nuggets,”reveals Shannon Albert, owner. The Tuscan leather bracelet consists of high quality leather and any of 15 nuggets, including amethyst, aquamarine and diamond jewels; Hopi hand, third eye and man in the moon; and snowflake, sun, sun and moon and skull, which can be easily popped in and out, Albert notes. “These bracelets are all the rage now in Europe, and they’re unlike anything else anyone has in North America,”she says. The band of each bracelet is one inch wide and holds three nuggets at a time. “You can change the look of the bracelet based on your mood, or to coordinate with an outfit,”Albert explains. “If I’m going out and I’m dressed up, I might pick some of the jeweled nuggets, but if I’m feeling a little bit naughty, I might pick the skulls.”
Tuscan Leather Bracelets are designed for both men and women. “The black bracelet with the skulls, for example, is perfectly suited to a guy,”Albert suggests. “The bracelet adjusts from 7.75 to 8.25 inches, so it fits just about everyone.”Suggested retail for a bracelet with three nuggets is $35 to $45. Leather bands wholesale for $7, and nuggets wholesale from $1.75 to $2. Retailers can easily double or triple their money, depending on their geographic area and what their pricing demands, Albert states.
Retailers who mention Independent Retailer magazine are eligible for a special introductory package, which includes 15 brown leather bracelets, 15 black leather bracelets, and five of each of the 15 nuggets. The regular wholesale price for this package is $360, but Independent Retailer readers will receive a $50 discount and free shipping. The minimum order is $50. Other recent My Shopping Tree introductions include a line of Swarovski crystal horse brow bands, available in black leather with clear crystals, and dark brown leather with pink crystals; and bracelets that can be personalized with letters or charms.
