    My rep let it spill today that Partylite is going to start carrying "something similar to Tastefully Simple" (that's how she put it). Sounds like a very weird combination to me!

    I went to their website to see if I could figure out what it could be that was similar. Maybe some container of some sort, but I'm stumped. You'll have to let us know when you find out! *hehe*

    I have a friend who sells PL and she told me a while ago they were going to be getting beer bread and the dried mixes for dips...sounds weird, I know...

    I think they should start selling cigars, cigarettes and pipe tobacco.

    Then they'd be PartyLite-Up.

    Well, maybe they could carry a line of Van de Graaff generators.

    Then they'd be PartyLitening.

    My PL consultant has had an open house featuring the new items - checkout her website at partylite DOT biz SLASH bevjorgensen for some idea. I couldn't go to the open house.

    Re: Partylite...

    maybe they see our and ts' success with beer bread and dip mixes so instead of keeping the companies seperate they are combining...like a party in one bag (ambiance and food)

    I used to see a lot of guys in alleys in Milwaukee and Chicago that had a party in a bag.

    PL purchased Two Sisters Gourmet. Very similar to TS. I believe only PL consultants of a certain level can sell the new line (unit leaders maybe). I have seen it and have tried it. What I have tried is very good. They started selling in a month or so ago.
