    Have any of you tried the bands that the younger groups are wearing that is suppose to give you balance and other features? They are worn by football players and other sports people. I have no idea what the correct name is. I'd like to get some for the gift shop but since I don't know exactly what they are called or any vendors to get them from I thought I would ask this WONDERFUL group.... So, if you happen to know what I am referring to and know any information, please email me or call me.

    Thanks,

    Nancy Rogers

    We did GREAT with these through the Christmas season.  However, in January, the original manufacturer came out with this public statement:

    In our advertising we stated that Power Balance wristbands improved your strength, balance and flexibility.We admit that there is no credible scientific evidence that supports our claims and therefore we engaged in misleading conduct in breach of s52 of the Trade Practices Act 1974. If you feel you have been misled by our promotions, we wish to unreservedly apologise and offer a full refund.

    I spent weeks in fear that everyone would come back to my shop for a refund!  Fotunately that didn't happen.  I haven't had anyone ask me if we sell them in several months.  I think the trend peaked and died.

    We have not sold them but I have seen them at Queen's Design if you want to try them.  Queen's is listed in the vendor directory.
