It is a compact pouch that converts to a super soft, versatile extra layer to sit on, sit under & wear.

Dear Candi Dishers,

The Candi Dish blog launched 2 years ago today!

At the time, my life was quite different than it is now:  I was psyched to be putting this blog in motion but was also very focused on bringing my vision for my product invention to life. It was a busy time of “my” firsts: creating my first Limited Liability Company (LLC); creating my first blog: The Candi Dish and of course, creating a consumer product from scratch for the very first time! I am very proud of that product and would be honored for you to learn about RestoPresto® on the product website and online store: What started as a sketch has flourished into a very real, incredible convenience item. RestoPresto® converts from a small pouch to a versatile extra layer that you can sit on, sit under & wear. It is water-repellent, durable, UPF 50+ and with snaps, drawstrings and loops, can be used TONS of ways to make your busy life easier. Planned events, spontaneous outings during all seasons for all ages….RestoPresto® = multifunctional value on the go! Manufactured in the USA; patents pending and we are stocking up for the holidays so gift giving will be a snap!

The Candi Dish blog was my first foray in putting “it” out there into the vast world wide web and I look forward to dishing more stories, snapshots and suggestions – thank you for being a fan!

Have a sweet day!

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

239 years ago on the 4th of July, the Declaration of Independence was officially adopted by Congress to formally separate from Great Britain and the United States was born.

The Declaration of Independence, one of the most important founding documents of the United States, is kept safe and sound in the Rotunda of the National Archives Building in Washington, DC.

Last month, I was in D.C. and took an early morning stroll along Pennsylvania Avenue. When I happened upon the National Archives, it was not open yet so I took a quick snap of RestoPresto from the outside. It was a meaningful moment to bring my invention to this striking building that holds a document that bestows life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

I am incredibly proud to have seized the opportunity to design, manufacture and assemble my product in the USA. I recognize the significance of this and view it as my own American dream achievement.

If you celebrate Independence Day on July 4th, may this holiday be a happy one for you and your loved ones!

All the best,

Dishing about a RestoPresto MILESTONE!

Golden Tree 2014 marks RestoPresto’s first vendor exhibit!

Golden Tree 2014 marks RestoPresto’s first vendor exhibit!


As an inventor and small business owner, I hit a huge milestone last Friday exhibiting RestoPresto at the New York Junior League Golden Tree fundraiser; marking the first time RestoPresto was a vendor. Witnessing people’s excitement about the product that I created from scratch at a festive and philanthropic event is an indescribable feeling.

For those of you who have taken the leap to make, launch and build a company, a product or a service understand how incredible, educational and validating it is to obtain positive feedback from prospective and new clients. I had 11 full hours to talk about and show people RestoPresto and the fact that it was in a supportive and pro-small business environment like Golden Tree, with proceeds supporting charitable community projects in New York, was extra special.


My thank you list is enormous and begins with the New York Junior League for providing me with an opportunity to spread the joy of RestoPresto to so many people and a special thanks goes out to Charlotte for continuous positive encouragement. I appreciate that my US factory was able to squeeze RestoPresto into the production schedule to produce a small pre-Kickstarter order so that I could take advantage of this invaluable experience. From my heart, I thank my sister, Dana for hours and hours of preparation and planning and for being an outstanding RestoPresto ambassador. I literally was able to physically arrive and set up my exhibit table at Golden Tree because of my cousin Nina whose joyful and calming disposition made a stressful morning fun! The talented Kayle of Dot Zev Sweets, whose delicious and beautiful “RP” cookies were a HUGE hit, made my display even sweeter!

Each day since I first came up with the idea for RestoPresto, I have worked on some aspect of the product or business so accomplishing the first public exhibition is superb!

I came up with the idea for RP in 2013 and have been designing, creating prototypes, testing fabrics and trims and searching for manufacturers in the U.S. that are willing to work with a first time inventor.

I am very pleased to have established a relationship with two prospective factories in the U.S., finalized the design after creating 15 prototypes, registered my trademark and have a provisional utility patent and a design patent pending.  I am now ready to put RP into the hands of consumers!

This is where you come in! To get your own First Edition RestoPresto™, I will be pre-selling through a Kickstarter campaign to fund the first production run in the U.S.  Up until this point, I have self-funded each stage of the pre-manufacturing process and would like to secure funding before taking the leap to production.

Now that you now have the link to my LIVE Kickstarter campaign, please check out the site spread the word to your friends, family and social media networks.  #RestoPresto

I hope that you will support my project to get your own First Edition RestoPresto™!
