Pink Saturday - pink handcuffs?

Pink Saturday - Beverly, at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you!


It's said that women are starting small businesses at 1.5 times the rate of men. Some women-owned businesses are in traditional fields connected to home, decor, child-rearing, and cooking, but women are also branching out into fields that are not traditionally thought of as women's work.

Here's a perfect example of a woman-owned business in a non-traditional field. We caught their truck and office on Grand Street in South Central Los Angeles.


Go check out their MySpace page for some video and interviews with the two owners. Two single moms, one a flight attendant, the other a loan processor, decided to start their own business. Complete with pink handcuffs!

For these ladies, every day is Pink Saturday!

Good for them. When I first started building, I had all of my construction trash hauled away by a female owned company called Think Pink. All of their dumpsters and trucks were pink. Sadly, they went out of business a few years ago.

That is awesome! Talk about women's empowerment! Thanks for sharing, and also thanks for letting me know about the plant. I was hoping to find out how to care for it specifically since it is such a beautiful plant.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Susie Jefferson said...

Wow, that IS pink! Although, being in the UK, we don't have bail bonds (I first heard of them on Judge Judy) so not quite sure what it's all about, but it looks fascinating. All power to them, love the logo.

Angela said...

As long as they don't try to put their lipstick on a PIG, I guess they will be alright! lol
Happy Pink Saturday!

Unusual business. If I hadn't check their link I wouldn't have thought. Far from the cutsie car they have.
