  • Have Cash Clip, Will Carry

    Posted on May 16, 2013


    It happened inside Old Man Wilson's haberdashery. I was waiting to pay for my bag of flour when I noticed that the gentleman in front of me had dropped some hard-earned cash on the floor. Now, spilt milk is one thing and not something to cry over, but spilt bills is something altogether!


    "Excuse me, good sir--but I believe you dropped this" I said as I handed over his wad of cash. "Land sakes!" he replied. "Thank you, my good man, ever so much for being an honest Joe."


    "Actually, the name's Jacob, but you're welcome!"


    "And I'm John--John Lexington. You have yourself a good day" he said with a tip of the hat, as he left with his wares and recovered money.


    And that's when the creative juices struck me--folks need something would hold money and keep it together. After some tinkering in my factory, I emerged with the Lexington Money Clip: a beautiful, 100% copper clip that allows gentlemen to carry their bucks in style. My clip is made in the USA just like all of my products. No more fumbling with a wallet, digging into a pocket or dropping cash on the ground! My Lexington Money Clip--inspired by Mr. Lexington--will keep everything from bucks to Benjamins in their rightful place. Just click right over here to learn more or to buy one (money not included.)

  • Keep America Beautiful Month

    Posted on April 17, 2013

    Folks, if there's one thing that gets ol' Jacob's underdrawers in a twist it's litter. Back in my day, there was no such thing as trash…namely because we had less stuff to throw away! Think about it…the rise of packaged goods in the 20th century means that some parts of the good ol' U.S. of A look like a garbage heap.
    April is Keep America Beautiful month. The Jacob Bromwell company is dedicated to keeping our beautiful country as litter-free as possible, year-round. The Keep America Beautiful site has some tips to help us all from being litterbugs. Some of those tips include:
    *Choose not to litter.  Make the commitment now to join with thousands of other Americans to not be a litter-bug.
    *Use a car litterbag.  When it is full, empty it into a trash and/or recycling receptacle.
    *Set an example for others, especially family, co-workers, friends, and children by using trash and/or recycling receptacles and not littering.
    *If you see litter, pick it up.
    *Pick up after your dog as you walk through your neighborhood.  Use newspaper delivery bags, "scoopers", or other easy-to-use methods to clean up after your pet.
    *Make sure your trash cans have lids that can be securely fastened or use bungee cords to hold them in place.
    Don't be a litterbug. Keep America looking beautiful! Visit the site for more tips.

  • The History of the Easter Bunny

    Posted on March 28, 2013

    Hippity hoppity, Easter's on its way as the song goes! Mamas and papas are busy buying chocolate eggs and baskets and their squalling tykes are waiting in line at shopping malls to get their photo taken with the Easter Bunny. But when exactly did we start anticipating the rabbit's arrival every Easter morning in America?


    We can thank German immigrants for bringing the legend of the Easter Bunny to the States. In pre-Christian Germany, around the 13th century, people worshiped gods and goddesses. One of those goddesses was named Eostra (sounds a lot like Easter, doesn't it?) She was the goddess of spring and fertility and the rabbit was her symbol because of the bunny's tendency to multiply!


    As early as the 18th century, German settlers in the Pennsylvania Dutch area told their children about tales of an egg-laying hare who dispensed eggs, candy and trinkets to good children on Easter morning. He was known as the Osterhase--which of course, later become known as the Easter Bunny in more modern times. Children would find eggs from the Osterhase in their bonnets and caps.


    So folks, here's hoping that you've been good enough that the Osterhase will pay you a visit this upcoming Sunday! Happy Easter!
