Sugar Bowl to debut inspirational gift line

Monday, January 21, 2002

Maya Angelou is world renowned for sharing messages of hope, love, faith, and gratitude.

Now, after almost two years of collaboration, Hallmark and Angelou are bringing her words of inspiration to a new line of specialty gifts and greeting cards debuting in January, 2002; The Maya Angelou Life Mosaic Collection.

The Maya Angelou Life Mosaic Collection will be available at Sugar Bowl Gift Shop at 516 Lake Avenue and other retail outlets where Hallmark is sold, ranging in price from $2.49 to $49.99.

Angelou's words of inspiration and love are woven into a variety of homes accents and gifts with bold colors and textured fabrics. The more than 60 products in the collection will include framed sentiments, journals, stoneware, treasure keepers, candleholders, sun catchers, wind chimes, stationery, and greeting cards.

Angelou's writings say what many cannot find the words to express, giving consumers gifts designed to offer everyday reminders to laugh, love, and persevere. " I talk about the human condition, what it is like to be a human being," Angelou said. "What makes us weep. How we can be overjoyed. How we can be lifted up. The best part of life is not just surviving, but thriving-with passion and compassion, humor and style, and generosity and kindness."
