Packaged in sets of 10, Browning's images are available in varying card sizes, suggested retails range from $8.95 to $10.95.
Cards of Beauty
In 1996, Sheila Kalisher, president of A.L.L.'s Well & Co., Livingston, NJ, created the concept of Astrological Aromas, pairing cards with scents that correspond to astrological signs. Since then Kalisher created Astrological Tributes, a line of greeting cards featuring an illustrated character for each astrological sign. Now Kalisher wants to translate her Astrological Aromas concept into health and beauty products for women, including bubble bath, dusting powder, as well as scented stationery, cards, and gift items.
