(PRWEB) August 4, 2004
Sassy Slippers and Handbags, based on the island of Maui, is pleased to announce that their handbags have been selected for the 2004 Teen Choice Awards produced by People Magazine.
ÂIt just sort of happened,Â says company owner Melany Stodelle. ÂWe received a call on Friday by the producers saying they were really interested in our products and wanted us to be a part of the award showÂs gift baskets.Â Gift baskets are given to all presenters of the Teen Choice Awards. This yearÂs award show will be featuring an ÂIsland ThemeÂ and will be hosted by Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie. Sassy Slippers and Handbags products just seemed the perfect choice in going with the island theme.
ÂIt must be the ALOHA,Â says Stodelle. ÂThey said that there is normally an application process, you have to send in samples, and then they have to approve or deny your products. This was all waved for our products,Â says Stodelle.
Stodelle said that there was a bit of a time crunch involved since the producers needed the products in hand by Wednesday August 4th for the shows August 11th airing.
ÂUnfortunately, living on an island, you have to add the additional delivery time needed for products to be shipped. This basically gave us only 2 days to make, package, and send the products so they could meet the deadline, but we did it.Â
All Sassy Slippers and Handbags products are handmade, usually to order. ÂWe normally tell people that it can take 1-2 weeks for their products to be made and delivered, but this kind of showed us what we are capable of in a situation like this.Â
Sassy Slippers and Handbags have been in business for several years and have quickly climbed the ranks as one of the most sought after fashion accessories. Sassy Slippers is also a part of the ÂMade In MauiÂ trade council which focuses on products specifically made and from the island of Maui.
ÂThis is great not only for us, but for the entire ÂMade in MauiÂ community,Â says Stodelle. ÂThe logo and ÂMade in MauiÂ seal will be placed into the hands of todayÂs hottest actors and will be seen in numerous television and print media campaigns as well. We just want people to know that not only is Maui a great place to visit, but also a great producer of some of the finest products made, possibly in the world!Â
