Thanks Mom

Astaire Stemware Flute Glass 6 oz

Astaire Stemware Flute Glass 6 oz

Mother’s Day officially became a holiday in 1914 by Woodrow Wilson after Anna Jarvis rallied for it to become official for more than five years. One hundred years later, Mother’s Day continues to be one of the most commercially successful U.S. occasions–heck, just ask any restaurateur.

Speaking of restaurants, we know that a staple of the Mother’s Day brunch is the Mimosa, consisting of Champagne and orange juice. So let us help you serve one of your most popular morning beverages in one of our elegant Astaire Stemware Flute Glasses. (Unless Mom is a Bloody Mary person, then we recommend using our Astaire Stemware All Purpose Glass for that.)

Want to beat the competition and give Mom a great souvenir? Imprint a little line on your glasses such as “Thanks Mom” or “Happy Mother’s Day 2014.” We have you covered–just contact customer service for the details.

Mother’s Day is always the second Sunday in May; this year it’s May 11. Be ready to serve Moms the best with Carllsle!

Break out the Gear

As the weather warms up, the days get longer and we can see it, the dust that has been hiding. It is time for spring cleaning, so bust out the broom and dusting supplies.

We have already shown you the Pan and Broom combo to make work easier in terms of sweeping, now it’s time to focus on the dust. With this detailed design, we are targeting something just out of our reach, the ceiling fan and walls.

Ceiling Fan And Wall Duster

Ceiling Fan And Wall Duster

The Ceiling Fan & Wall Duster is designed to make the job more manageable for you. This special fan has a unique and innovative shape that lets it wrap around fan blades to provide complete cleaning on all sides.

The fan is already hard to reach, so don’t waste energy setting up a ladder. Use this innovative tool and it will be a snap.

These soft, flagged synthetic bristles will not scratch even the most delicate of finishes on fans. You can also clean fans, ceilings, walls, door trimming and molding.

So reach for the sky with this innovative instrument. (Or at least the fan.)

Sweeping Up: Chore No More?



Dirt is everywhere.

Keeping up with the never-ending battle to maintain cleanliness not only impresses your supervisors and the CEO, but most importantly your customers.

But there is one truth to all cleaning, it can be a pain.

We’ve been there, trying to sweep dirt into a dustpan, pressing the dustpan down to catch all the dirt whilst using a tall broom. Chore no more though–with the Pan and Broom combo, cleaning the front area will become almost effortless.

The dust pan and broom will be your go-to tool when cleaning (we think everyone will want this task–you’ll see why). The pan comes standard with a serrated edge allowing the user to comb through the broom’s bristles and drop more dirt in the pan. The pan pivots and locks into place during use and release for easy carrying or emptying. At 30”, the combo is the perfect height for sweeping (if there is a good height for cleaning!).
These compact wonders are equipped with a clip for easy storage. This is a new product, so your competition will be wondering how your place got so clean. Sweep up with Carlisle!
