Subject: Another Idea
To: Jeff Katz
This is probably already taken: Elizabeth was asking about a yarmulke she thought she saw when looking for ones for the wedding which has flap or something underneath which allows one to clip the yarmulke on without the clip showing. She might have accidently come up with a good idea, since I can't find where she saw that, or any indication it already exists. Although, I think she must've seen it somewhere, so I'll take another look...
Although, even assuming this doesn't exist, it has an extremely limited audience. It's limited (mostly)to male orthodox jews with hair (small amount), who don't wear a yarmulke which doesn't require clips (a large percentage of them), who care whether the clip is showing, and aren't satisfied with hair colored bobby pins. I'm pretty sure this isn't even worth anymore time checking to see if it already exists, but the one nice thing about it is that it would be rather easy to produce and market. But I'm not sure we could make any sort of significant profit on it (or even cover patenting costs.)
Also, just to clarify, like I said, I want to focus on the bike stuff for now, but it doesn't mean to not keep the other ideas flowing...
