Creative cuffs

John Zaboyan, of Crown Point, has created a new favorite fashion trend. While traditional cuff links offers a touch of class to attire, many dress shirts aren't made for cuff links. Mr. Zaboyan dreamed up a wonderful fashion accessory that allows any contemporary button cuff shirt to easy be adorned with his fun "Cuffers," which easily slip over any button. Available in many elegant and whimsical designs, he has also created special styles for charitable organizations to help groups earn money. He also uses TradeWinds in a partnership for the packaging and shipping of the items. To date, he has designed special Cuffers for NoKidHungry and Wounded Warriors, with all of the profits from each design going to those charitable organizations.

WHERE TO BUY: Prices range from $16.75 to $20.50 and $24.25 at

Dish delight

InventHelp has created Sink Out of Sight, a decorative screen that conceals dirty dishes in a sink to maintain an aesthetic-looking kitchen. It attaches to the top of the sink via suction cups and can be rolled up when not in use. This decorative, adjustable cover allows the user to use a sink while at the same time camouflage an unsightly mess. It's an innovative product is easy to install. Simply unroll the attractive Sink Out of Sight decorative cover and secure it with the suction cups included onto the counter around the single or double sink. This household product was created out of necessity by Ann Marie Galgano, a Staten Island native. After a fire in the Galgano home, the family had to move into a small apartment while their house was repaired. With two young children, a tiny kitchen and a proportionally small sink, Ann Marie found that she was constantly staring at a full sink of dishes.
