    Experience deep richness along with a hint of sweetness. No added sugar, 50% fewer calories, and less fat than other chocolates.

    “great chocolate can only be made in the best of facilities.” Which is exactly what was built for them. RED is crafted in a technologically-innovative, green-certified factory, holding ten global patents. And, the custom-made equipment was designed by leading German and Swiss manufacturers to ensure Earth-happy processes in water and air purification, water recycling, free cooling, and recuperation technologies. From this new kitchen designed to bring the RED recipe to its promised peek of indulgence, RED was introduced to the European market in 2006.

    Without surprise, RED gained popularity quickly throughout western Europe. Chocolette Confectionary then had a dream to bring its beloved chocolate to the States. In 2019, RED was introduced to the U.S.—and, they are excited that here too, the brand has been winning the hearts of chocolate-lovers.

    Petsies – A Personalized Gift for Pet Owners

    Petsies are custom stuffed animals made to look just like your pet. They’re a fun gift for someone obsessed with their pet, make a wonderful keepsake to remember a past pet, or great to give business travelers who are away from their pets for long periods of time. They’re made from faux furs & airbrushed to match your pet‘s unique markings. They specialize in pets of all sizes: dogs, cats, horses, rats, birds, monkeys.

    Make A Wish and Carry It with You

    Have you ever made a wish? I believe everyone did when you were still a little kid. But where did our wishes go as we are growing up? We haven’t made a wish for a long time, and sadly we almost forgot all the wishes we ever made! But I still can remember the beautiful moments when I made a wish at small ages – secretly writing down on my notebook, or under my study desk. There is a brand I want to introduce to you all that you can carry the wishes with you, so that you will never lost it and forget it. It is Wishbeads.

    How Wishbeads work?

    • Write it.

    Visualize your greatest wish coming true. See it clearly in your mind’s eye. Write down your wish using the kit that is provided along with your jewelry.

    • Wear it.

    Roll up the paper. Tuck it inside your beautiful gemstone jewelry. Wear your wish every day as a powerful visual reminder of the intention you’ve set.

    • Witness.

    Each day, whenever you see your jewelry, you’ll be reminded to take action, to live purposefully toward realizing your wish. Witness the power of you!

    Fire Recycled Glass Bracelet

    This collection features African recycled glass beads handmade by members of the Krobo Tribe in Ghana, Africa. Using centuries-old techniques, they form each bead by compressing the glass into a dry grain, heating the grain, and pouring into porcelain molds, before adding the stem of the cassava leaf to form the hole. The final heating burns the stem away and fuses the glass together. Vibrant colors and irregular shapes of each bead create one-of-a-kind pieces.

    Write down your deepest wish, tuck it inside your Wishbeads bracelet, and wear it as a daily reminder to take action.

    • Features solid brass cylinder and screw cap
    • Includes 5 wishpapers
    • Hand strung beads and clasp
    • Bracelet lengths vary between 18.5cm-19cm

    Pakahana Love – Bling By Billie!

    One-of-kind creations from Billie Fischer – the founder Alexa’s MOM! Inspired to stay creative and active during the pandemic, Billie got busy re-imagining the extra beads we had on hand. Each style is unique, handmade with love. Get them while you can!

    Write down your deepest wish, tuck it inside your Wishbeads bracelet, and wear it as a daily reminder to take action.

    • Features solid brass cylinder and screw cap
    • Includes 5 wishpapers
    • Hand strung beads and clasp
    • Lengths vary: 18.3cm – 18.7cm

    Beach Lovers Attention! You Should Have U-Stand For Your Next Beach Trip

    Fill your U-Stand with weight (sand, water, ice and drinks), insert any umbrella, and enjoy stress free shade. Tired of sandy drinks? The U-Stand features a two-piece table top with 4 full size upholders! Also tired of digging holes for your umbrella, only for it to go flying down the beach with one gust of wind? Don’t worry, U-Stand got you covered.

    This multi-purpose, portable umbrella stand was originally made for the beach but let’s be honest, the possibilities are endless with the UStand! It comes fully equipped with a storage base for all your beach or pool gear and an umbrella stand to help you soak up the sun without getting burnt!

    U-Stand “Shade Anywhere” is a “patent pending”, portable bucket with a tube that runs through its center and opens up at the top. It is engineered to be highly portable, incredibly lightweight, and rugged enough to withstand the abuse of everyday use.

    The empty U-Stand can be easily taken to the beach, filled up with sand, and set up with a beach umbrella. Imagine a bucket full of beach sand incessantly preventing your umbrella from taking off. That’s U-Stand for you. Filling it up with sand sounds too much of work? Fill it up with water. You can even bring ice in it from home.

    The intelligently designed bucket stand offers a flat tabletop with cupholders on top of it for convenience. It’s the ultimate beach accessory.

    How It Works:

    STEP 1 – Fill up the U-Stand with beach gear, attach the lids.

    STEP 2 – Carry the U-Stand with shoulder strap to your destination.

    STEP 3 – Empty your beach gear.

    STEP 4 – Fill the U-Stand with something heavy, Sand (90lbs), Water (60lbs), Ice & Drinks (50lbs).
    Warning: The U-Stand is designed to support your beach umbrella. The U-Stand must be filled with weight. DO NOT PUT UMBRELLA IN WITHOUT WEIGHT! 

    STEP 5 – Attach lids to the top

    STEP 6 – Insert beach umbrella pole through center tube and push into sand at least 6 inches.

    STEP 7 – Tighten set screw to secure the U-Stand to the beach umbrella pole.

    STEP 8 – Open beach umbrella. SIT BACK AND RELAX -ENJOY THE SHADE 


    Where can you use the U-Stand?

    • Use it at the beach
    • Backyard
    • Outdoor Concert
    • Sporting Events
    • Lake

    When used correctly the U-Stand has been proven an effective way to reduce fly-away umbrellas. Use caution when winds are gusting and close your umbrella when the conditions are too strong. IMPORTANT: Always fill your U-Stand completely with heavy weight (Sand, Water, Rocks) when winds are strong.

    If you are doing holiday shopping lately. You should totally add U-Stand into your shopping list. As social distancing is still required, going to beach is the activity we always do in South California. Enjoy the beach time and feeling the warm sunshine. U-Stand solves a lot of “beach problems” in an easy way. If you are having a tropical Christmas this year, this is also a cool tool you should carry with you.
