Tell us about your business.

All of my sheets are individually hand crafted in my small home shop in beautiful Bucks County PA using fun beach themed fabrics. I started this product when I got tired of dragging most of the beach home with me on my blanket or stuck all over my towels. I started by finding cute fun beach themed fabric that sand wouldn't stick to and sewing it together to make a queen sheet sized blanket. Then I put grommets in the corners to keep it in place without putting sandals or bags on it so it wouldn't blow away. Keeping it secure on the beach helps keep sand off also. Then I came up with the idea to make matching inflatable pillows after my husband had neck surgery. I tried different processes to keep the pillows secure on the sheet I found that putting snaps and loops on the sheet and pillow works best. I need to expand my business it's growing faster than I can keep up. I want to have it manufactured and placed in all Department stores like Kohl's, Penny's, Macy's and beach shops.

What makes your business stand out?

My sheet uses beach themed all natural fiber fabric that have fun cute patterns perfect for the beach. This fabric stays cooler and sand won't stick to it. It's not a plastic like nylon or polyester like other sheets on the market, plastics breakdown in UV light. This is the only product that has matching inflatable pillows, that attach to the sheet. The grommets make it very easy to stake down into the sand, easier than clips or tethers. You can go down to the water without having to worry about the sheet or pillows blowing away. Keeping the sheet secure to the beach helps to keep the sand off. The sheet is lightweight and folds very compactly. It also dries very quickly, if it gets wet by a wave. It's easy to carry and store away in the reseal able plastic bag. When you leave the beach you won't be taking any of the sand with you from the sheet, the sand just rolls off in the ocean breeze.

What's the best business advice you've received?

The positive feedback from my customers.
