Veteran retailers may get a little jittery in an election year because of the old adage that election years are bad for business.  Many have already tired of the political rhetoric so here are some quips from The Book of Poisonous Quotes by Colin Jarmin to lighten us up before we get started. 


Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich by promising to protect each from the other.

                                                                        Oscar Ameringer


Politics is developing more comedians than radio ever did.

                                                                        Jimmy Durante


And now my favorite from British politics:


Lady Astor: Winston, if I were married to you, I’d put poison in your coffee.

Sir Winston Churchill:  Nancy, if you were my wife, I’d drink it.


Americana Jewelry

Now if we can’t beat ‘em, let’s join ‘em.  First there is the jewelry.  All those campaign workers, convention Republican fashion pendantdelegates, and passionately dedicated want to express their feelings.  For the ladies, nothing beats jewelry.  American flag pins say a lot and rhinestone flag pins do it with sparkle, but for getting to the point nothing beats donkey and elephant jewelry wrapped in stars and stripes. 


Pendants and earrings make an explicit statement for those with the courage to wear them.  Of course, it’s no problem at conventions and precincts with a captive audience and these are some of the hottest markets.  This jewelry often sells in volume for a group that Democrat fashion pendantwants to make a statement together. 


Wholesale Americana pendants and earrings that provide a cute statement are a specialty of Best Brand.  The well-crafted jewelry has raised relief and a polished finish plus plenty of personality.  They are so cute they have to get attention.  Just carry both so no one throws a rock through your window.


Men’s Accessories

What about the guys?  Lapel flag pins are big, but for suit and tie guys American flag ties are it.  A variety ofwholesael American flag ties styles provides choices to fit different personalities.  Some like an understated look while others prefer a dramatic statement.





Boater Hats

Now everyone knows that outside of theatre productions the boater hat sees its heyday at political boater hatconventions.  So let conventioneers throw away those cheesy styrofoam boaters and don true quality with a straw boater made like the originals from the early 20th century.  Surely a boater of this quality can attract more votes.  Judging by the expression of the lady in the picture, her candidate must have lost.




Back to the ladies.  Everyone has to trust a woman draped in a scarf of stars and stripes.  Large squares or flag scarvesoblongs are all it takes to make a statement.  Here is an accessory you can get creative with.  Explore all the different ways to tie a scarf and pass these on to your customers and you make scarves an irresistible accessory.



Rhinestone Alphabet

Next comes something that can really zero in on a candidate-rhinestone initials.  The letters slide on arhinestone alphabet jewelry bracelet to spell a name.  Just hope the names are short to hold cost down.  If they had these 200 years ago think how much more economical it would be to sell “Adams” than “Jefferson”.  In 1952 “Ike” would be a bargain next to “Stevenson”.  If local politics wants to make a statement without spending a fortune on custom jewelry, this could be an answer.


We’re having fun, but it’s a fact.  This kind of interest is a once in four year event-presidential election year.  Why worry about how it can impact business when you can capitalize on it?
