Ribbon Cutting - We opened our first store location in Ocean City during Spring 2012.  We held a ribbon cutting with the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce to kick off the season.  We were happy many of our friends and family came by to check out the new spot.  More info...

Debut - Our towels made their NFL debut in May 2012 for the MEOR Fundraiser at the Met Life Stadium.   This was one of our favorite deliveries.  We got to walk onto the field at the ol' Giants stadium and even go into the visiting teams locker room before the event.  More info...

Relax - Our team takes great pride in packaging our orders with TLC.  We sometimes do photo shoots of our items.  Here are some of our towels posing with our shore sign which reads "RELAX - It doesn't get better than this."  It is definitely funny to read this sign during crazy summer weeks!

Our Linen Walls - It was a record year for our linens and towels.  Twin sets were most popular but Queen sets were a close second.  As for towels - we sent out over 500 towels each week.  Boy do we have clean vacationers!

Store- Our new store is located at 1213 West Avenue in Ocean City.  It's a great spot to take for our team to confirm reservations and prepare  orders for delivery all over the Jersey Shore.  We will opening back up at the same location real soon!

Fourth of July - We love to have fun with our orders.  For the Fourth of July week we included small flags with orders for vacationers to enjoy.  Also most orders throughout the year include "Do Not Disturb" door tags just like hotels.

Crib - The crib was probably the most exciting addition to both our inventory and our family.   For Summer 2012, we introduced baby equipment to our inventory. We offer full size cribs, BOB strollers, high chairs and more!   This addition was by request from many vacationers with young children.
Also -  we welcomed a little baby boy into our family in late September.   What a special delivery for us!

Beach House - The beach house is our favorite symbol of realtors, vacationers and homeowners. We wouldn't be without all of you!  Thank you!

Although not pictured, Hurricane Sandy had a significant impact in 2012.  Our prayers go out to those affected.  We believe in our Jersey Shore and look forward to vacationing together in the future.

Cool App: Star Walk

We love living at the beach year round. One of the best things about it is looking at the stars at night. On a clear night you can see a lot but you may not know what you are looking at. By no means am i an astronomer (but did take an astronomy class in college to fulfill my Science requirement.). I do appreciate knowing what I'm looking at! Check out the star walk app next time you are stargazing at the beach.

Hot chocolate

We truly enjoyed hosting an impromptu hot chocolate stand outside our place in manasquan on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Walkers along the beach path were welcome to enjoy a complimentary cup of hot chocolate w whipped cream and marshmallows. Cookies too! Manasquan endured a lot of damage from hurricane Sandy and many walkers were seeing it for the first time. We hope the hot chocolate helped warm folks up and allowed them to think of warm days ahead as the recovery continues.

Identifying New Inventory Following Sandy

My husband, baby, dog and I have been displaced now for over a month.  It has been a crazy month but we are fortunate that we will be able to return to our winter place soon.  Despite all the craziness, we've learned a lot about "stuff"...  While we definitely have figured out we can travel fairly well in just suitcases but babies need to be entertained; therefore, requiring us to travel with lots of stuff .

When we introduced baby items last summer, we included required items for travel and just a few fun things.  This year we will be adding some new items to our inventory based on what we've found helpful to have around.

Be on the lookout for activity mats.  Our little one just love them.  He spends  a lot of time just hanging out and baby chatting with the toys.   A must have for a two month old and up!
