We've got some pretty aggressive sales targets for Coppertops to hit over the upcoming holiday season. Due to our success with sales of our bottle wrap, these targets are really all about our wine-themed line. Meaning, we're spending a lot of time these days talking to wine stores, thinking about wine, and wrapping wine. So, perhaps not surprisingly, that's the theme of this week's motivating, inspiring, and why-didn't-I-think-of-that images.
Cork Crafts. There are thousands of ways to use old corks, but I have had this cork bathmat pinned for.ev.er. This year. It's going to happen.
Wine Cellars. My collection doesn't quite warrant an installation like this yet, and for now the space beneath our kitchen is fully monopolized by a combo of coppertops children and Coppertops paper, but someday....
Blind tasting. We've got some learning to do to really master a blind tasting, but isn't this such a cute and festive way to conceal your labels?
Wine club.....er, book club. As lovers of both words and wine, the book club that masquerades as a wine club is good one for us.
Fascinating stories. One of the best wine-related stories we've heard in pretty much forever is the story of Latif Jiji, an Iraqi Jewish refugee, who planted a grapevine in the backyard of his Upper East Side townhome in Manhattan almost 40 years ago and is still bringing together his family to make wine with its fruit. (We first read about it in Eat the City
and you can too!)
