    NorSari (Season 4 Episode 46)

    NorSari (Season 4 Episode 46)

    NorSari was created in Northfield, Minnesota. One frigid December morning, Gwen Daniels, grabbed a blanket off the couch and wrapped it around her waist to stay warm as she headed out to face the day. Instantly, she had an idea she wanted to share with others. She worked to create an adjustable wrap that would secure easily over any type of clothing for an added layer of warmth that everyone could wear. They still make a heritage limited-edition handmade NorSaris in Northfield, Minnesota as well as their traditional NorSari and SunSari's.  - The SunSari has a performance rubber shell that deters the water and protects from the sun, lined with a 100% cotton soft terrycloth that is of pool towel quality.

    Gift Trails (Season 4 Episode 45)

    Mark Rustad has created a new game that takes families on an adventure in their homes called Gift Trails.

    The game is a battle of wits, a clash of imaginations played out amongst two opposing forces in your home.   One plays the role of Host.  The other plays the role of Hunter.
    The Host is the event planner who designs the game in advance of play.  Their job is to stump the Hunter.  Using the tools of GiftTrails, the Host works to construct a secret hidden trail inside the home.  A trail marked with riddles, puzzles, tasks, and challenges.   
    The Hunter is caught by surprise and presented with the challenge..   They set out to blaze through the trail, slay the clues, and claim their prize at the trail’s end.
