A Travel Store That Makes a Difference
Visiting a travel store is a real adventure if you love to travel. It allows you to see, feel and compare different products, to judge the quality of products and to learn what’s NEW.
I recently visited Edwards Everything Travel in San Francisco, which is a family owned business that has been around since 1946. I spoke to one of the owners, Randy MacKenzie, who has worked full-time for Edwards since 1977. She has witnessed an amazing evolution in the travel industry, such as an increase in travel and in the number of products especially designed to meet the needs of women.
Suitcases have become much lighter, more manageable and more secure. Many are available with 4 wheels that allow the traveler to push a bag rather than pulling it, which is much easier on the back. Also luggage now comes in a variety of luscious colors, such as blue, red and purple that are especially popular with women.
Another change in travel is the way travelers pack. There are many new products like packing cubes, packing folders and products for storing your essential technology products.
Randy pointed out a few products that are especially popular with women travelers. One the GirlyGoGarter® a sexy, lacey garter made of two-way stretch microfiber with pockets that adhere to your upper thigh with latex-free patented GentleFlex™ Grippers. There are two types of pockets on the GirlyGoGarter®. Both types of pockets keep your money, I.D., lip gloss, mobile phone, keys, passport and all of your other essentials safe, secure but right at your fingertips.
The “Chilly Jilly” is an oversize wrap that can double as a chic scarf, a blanket when traveling, a wrap to keep you warm or you can wrap it around your waist for a beach cover up. Chilly Jilly wraps are cozy, wrinkle-resistant and good for many occasions.
Another useful, new product is the AirQuart, a TSA-compliant way to carry liquids and gels and to secure small products for airline travel. It combines fashion and function and is much nicer than using a plastic kitchen bag.
To see more NEW travel gear stop in one of the 4 San Francisco Bay Area Edwards Everything Travel stores and/or check their Internet site (http://www.edwardsluggage.com/) for packing demo dates. Edwards carries everything you could possibly need for traveling and is considered one of the finest travel stores in the USA.
