Since 1919, this has been the home of great candy!

Claey’s Candy was my first stop on the Fall 2013 USA Vendor Tour. And what a stop it was! Those rumors you hear about elves making candy? They must have learned it from Claeys.

Pick A Perfect Hostess Gift: Lehman’s Old-Fashioned Bottle Opener

Solid, cast stainless steel, the Old-Fashioned Bottle Opener is easy to use.

We’re all looking at the calendar, counting down the days until Thanksgiving. And if you’re like my hubby and I, finding the perfect hostess gift for a holiday visit is always a challenge.

This year, though, we’ve got it handled. We’re going to get a few of Lehman’s Old-Fashioned Bottle Openers for our hostess gifts.

Now, this isn’t some cheesy lightweight of a bottle opener. Lehman’s Old-Fashioned Bottle Opener is cast stainless steel–which gives it a nice weight in your hand. It’s not going to go sliding off a countertop either. It’s easy to keep clean too–there’s nothing nastier than a yukky bottle opener popping up in the middle of a holiday party. And the Lehman’s logo is imprinted right on the handle. Very cool.

Yes, indeed, the Old-Fashioned Bottle Opener is just the ticket–and because we can order it online, and back it up with a selection of old-school candies, it’s the perfect fun, retro-themed hostess gift that’ll arrive before we do, because we can ship it ahead!
