Received an email today from the Girl Scout Store advertising all their cookie gear. They now have everything from badges, to socks, to scrapbook kits, to a totally awesome cookie jar! Check it out all the Girl Scout cookie gear here.
I’m not the kind of person that uses a cookie car, but this is awesome. Also, to reflect back for a moment, it’s been 10 years since I was a girl scout and I can selfishly wish they’d been smart enough to market this kind of thing when I was a scout! Not only is this a cool piece of paraphernalia, but it would have been a great thing to be able to sell to neighbors, friends, and relatives along with the cookies. What an up-sell opportunity! I have the benefit of being able to look back on this from my current career in marketing to know that any up-sell opportunity it one worth exploring.
I’m also really glad to see that there are actual badges now regarding the cookie sales. I remember all we got was the event patch for participating, and I always had the nifty little Top Seller add-on patch. Way to go GSUSA!
