cole river co.

This year, Cole River is working to expand where we still see growth and contract where we don’t. As always we strive to offer smart products at affordable price points, one-of-a-kind design elements that will set you apart from your competition, quality pick-me-ups at low price points, and a strategic expansion of our bath / spa category that will service your bath, gift, personal care, and décor customers all at once.

H  AND-CARVED HORN TURTLES Give the gift of good fortune! In many cultures, our hand-carved turtle is an ancient symbol of fortune, vitality, and longevity. HO-T191 Hand-Carved Horn Turtles, 2 x 2.5” (min 12)

Happy 2009! And what a year it promises to be. After spending 2008 being bombarded by political ads and campaigns, we all thought we might be able to sit back and enjoy a bit of down-time. Ha! Ironically, while we now have a very capable president in place, there will be no down-time to speak of. In fact, the work that will be necessary to rebuild this country is daunting, and the steps that we take must be smarter and more progressive than any we’ve taken in the past several decades. Within our own industry, we also find huge challenges. Our task to rebuild is great and requires such strategies as repairing consumer confidence and interest, timing our buys to better synchronize with seasonal spending trends, offering products that perform a function, please the eye, AND are reasonably priced, and positioning merchandise for careful and cautious consumers at ALL spending levels.

We have a couple of personal picks this year. First is our silkscreened lacquerware. We love the new technology of silkscreening on lacquered wood, but the photography we’ve featured is also lovely and deserves to be studied and admired. Another favorite is our 100% natural bamboo fiber bath amenities. Bamboo fiber, by nature, is anti-bacterial, extremely soft on the skin, and produced with care using only sustainable resources thus perfect for use in the bath. These items also provide for a bit of pampering, too, making them a smart gift choice for just about everyone who needs a bit of comfort these days. For now and throughout this year ahead, we wish you good fortune, steady sales and lots of inspiration. More importantly, here’s to good health, much joy, and plenty of laughter during 2009. We also thank you for your business. As always, we are grateful for your continued support
