The Under $10 Stocking Stuffer Keeps Keys Safe in Your Hand

Time to think of the stuffers for Christmas? it’s never too early. Especially when I find some cool products, I want to introduce to you right away!

If Mrs. Claus must drive, she never thinks twice about walking through a dark parking lot. On the way to hang stockings this holiday, a handbag ornament called Finders Key Purse® is poised to put a damper on parking lot dread. According to the Bureau of Justice, one in 10 property crimes occur in parking lots or garages, a statistic that an under-$10 stocking stuffer product called the Finders Key Purse® has solved for over 12M handbag carriers nationwide.

A decorative handbag icon hooks onto the edge of one’s purse with keys clipped onto the other end inside. The multitude of designs from Swarovski bling to enameled pet lover hearts and elegantly monogrammed charms, not only keep keys from disappearing into the rubble of a handbag, but pepper spray and panic button fobs as well. Finders Key Purse® retails for $7.95, blinged-versions range up to $29.99. A portion of the proceeds from several designs benefits different charitable organizations annually. Finders Key Purse® can be found in major gift stores nationwide including Hallmark, in colleges, car washes, on QVC, and on Amazon.

The brainchild of a former flight attendant who needed to support her family when her husband lost his job, Finders Key Purse® found its footing thanks to an armada of her fellow flight attendants who distributed the product when stopping at layovers and on their home turf. Since its debut in 2005, the line has grown to include designs to accessorize any taste from fashionistas to firefly, flamingo and frog lovers, patriotic flags to “dog mom” and “cat mom”, and even angels and religious symbols.

“Everyone has felt vulnerable walking solo in a parking lot,” said founder and CEO, Sandy Stein, “bad things can happen when one is digging around in their handbag and not paying attention to their environment. I am proud to contribute to helping women feel more confident while also donating to our favorite charities.”

SAHARA Las Vegas seeks vintage items from the former Sahara Hotel and Casino to complete its hotel lobby transformation

SAHARA Las Vegas is asking long-time Las Vegans, historians and collectors to contribute to its more than $150 million transformation. As the property readies to unveil an all-new hotel lobby later this month, the iconic resort is seeking donations of memorabilia and collectibles from the original Sahara Hotel and Casino to display and provide a hint of nostalgia to its new exquisite, modern design. 
“Our vision for the new hotel lobby was to create a modern design with top-tier guest amenities and technology, yet with a bit of inspiration and nod to the original Sahara,” said Nancy Paolino, founder and chief creative officer for Innovativo Design. “With the many enhancements we are making, we still want to acknowledge this property’s iconic history on the Las Vegas strip.” 
All submissions will be considered. Rare items from the 1950s through the 1970s are of particular interest, especially those that will provide dimension to the look and feel of the all-new lobby including menus, china, figurines and more. Selected contributors will have the opportunity to experience an exclusive lobby tour and fireside chat with the designer at CASBAR Lounge. 
SAHARA Las Vegas will be accepting submissions through Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019. Those looking to contribute their items to the resort’s transformation can submit by sharing a photo on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #OURSAHARA or by email at
