Spring Holidays and new tapestry trim Sephardic hat style yarmulkes!

Happy Spring to all of my readers!  Most of us have endured a very hard Winter and are eagerly looking forward to warm, sunny Spring weather.

The Spring holidays are rapidly approaching.  Passover first Seder begins on Shabbat at sundown, Friday April 3, 2015.  East Sunday is April 5, 2015.  I wish everyone wonderful holidays.

I've created new matzo or matzah covers with 3 sections in fabulous new prints.  You can add the optional matzo style label with the Hebrew word for matzah to your case.

These are just 3 of the new prints for Passover this year.  Please visit the page for all of the great matzah 3 section cases.

Naturally I have the matching afikomen zippered case / cover  in the same fabrics and with the optional Hebrew Afikomen label

Your seder will not be complete with gorgeous kippahs!  I just received new tapestry trims for new stunning   Bucharian Tapestry Trim hat style yarmulkes.

These are just a few of the new trims, with many of them featuring gold and / or silver metallic trim.  You can select your trim, background color and then the size you need.  

Please be sure to see all of our  wonderful kippahs / yarmulkes via this link.  I've got something for everyone including Disney kippahs (new Frozen fabric to post soon), Star Wars yarmulkes, NFL, NCCA and NBA kippahs, to name a few.

That is all for this time.  Happy Passover!

Happy New Year's greetings to all!  I hope everyone has enjoyed their holidays.

Beautiful upstate NY is now incredibly cold.  For epinephrine carriers, whether Epipen ® , Auvi-Q ®, or another epinephrine autoinjector, you need to keep your medication safe from the cold temperatures as well as the heat.

Whether you are skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating or simply walking around enjoying Winter's nature, we've got 4 different style insulated cases that will help keep your epinephrine at the proper temperature range.  I offer 5 different colors (red, shocking pink, black, royal blue and navy blue) as well as many options (medical alert label, extra pocket, clear pocket, sling straps and more).

These cases are our originals and come with a great variety of options.

You can see all the details and can purchase this style case here

This case is our waist case that holds a ton of extras including a 4 ounce bottle of benadryl

With the new Auvi-Q epinephrine injectors I developed a minimalist case to carry just 2 of the injectors and an inhaler.  Sure you can put in benadryl tabs as well.

My last case is one that just goes perfectly into a handbag, backpack, tote bag, etc.
