For Fortune Products, Inc., 2013 is about bigger, better light-up decorations. With its Fairy Berries battery operated string lights and real lighted glassware, the company continues to deliver merchandise that adds extra sparkle to events. Smaller than one inch in diameter, round Fairy Berries can be used to decorate in a variety of ways, including on water, in trees, in centerpieces and on lawns. Fairy Berries retail for $17.95 to $24.95, and wholesale pricing is available upon request. A favorite among high-end wedding coordinators, Fairy Berry products, available in a wide array of colors, recently were featured on the televised wedding of celebrity chef Robert Irvine and WWE diva Gail Kim. This year, the firm is bringing in Mama Berries, a larger version of the original product at roughly the size of a golf ball. "These are definitely expected to do well, as customers find more and more uses for Fairy Berries beyond event planning," says national sales manager Greg Hayenga.
In addition to its other lighted objects, the company plans to stock a new product popularized by the hit television series, "Real Housewives," called Ultra Orbs. Measuring 20 or 24 inches around, Ultra Orbs are a supersized version of Fairy Berries, available in red, green, blue, white and teal. Ultra orbs shed light for up to 19 hours and run on D batteries. Wholesale pricing information is available by contacting Fortune Products directly.
"We are adding new products every quarter to stay relevant," Hayenga shares, "and we're expanding our line of battery operated wax candles to include different shapes, sizes and features. For the New Year, we expect to introduce about 20 new SKUs in the first quarter alone." With no minimum order and low qualifying quantity levels for price breaks, Hayenga emphasizes that making the buyer's experience as easy as possible is of the utmost importance to Fortune Products, Inc.
