    Mac, I see a service. Some sort of personal organizer that ‘holds various sundry (and delicate) pieces of your life together.’

    I love Mac Gillespie’s. I think it’s a winner. I can only be smarmy and say: ‘We’ve seen this before, and we know what to do. -(World Monetary Fund).’

    Maybe also incorporate a quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald that says, “A great social success is a pretty girl who plays her cards as carefully as if she were plain.”

    Mac, I see a recruitment company! This girl really needs a job. So the slogan might be: ‘Looking for work? Adecco Staffing.’ Or: ‘Time on your hands? Career Group Inc.’

    The product can be anything she’s wearing (apparel, fragrance), but could also be the cause she believes in. She’s holding the cards and playing them face up – she’s not hiding anything. Hope all is well.

    Other than my People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals suggestion from yesterday, I think this could be an advert of either a Vespa motor scooter or a convertible…maybe the Fiat 500 Cabrio…something where the wind blows through your hair, but the important stuff is protected…

    Fixing the fragile: it takes more than glue. Psychiatry Unit, NYC Hospital.

    (That also implies that some people don’t play with a full deck of cards)

    or… on the lighter side:

    Incomplete bridge set: 10,99 dollars.

    Persian rug with glue stain: 200,000 dollars.

    Hot 20-year younger girlfriend with too much time on her hands: priceless.

    Actually–scratch that, just put the Goldman Sachs logo on the glue, then “its time to bring down the house of cards, join us at occupy wall street”

    Slogan: ‘Get kinky’ Logo: Coco de Mer Note: Coco de Mer ( is an erotic luxury boutique. One you wouldn’t be embarrassed to be seen in because it’s so upscale and the shop (at least in London) is so tastefully done. Kinky can mean both idiosyncratic/quirky and unusual sexual practices. Both apply in this context.
