14 Items in the Sharper Image Catalog that Prove They're Better at Tech Trends than You
Despite the fact that they’ve been out of the brick-and-mortar scene for nearly a decade, Sharper Image is still going strong with their e-commerce business. And since I’m now well beyond my childhood years where the annual F.A.O. Schwarz catalog would generate all the excitement and gift ideas I needed during the holidays (R.I.P.), the adult version of myself looks forward to receiving the annual Sharper Image catalog to reignite some of those holiday feelings of yesteryear.
Flipping through the catalog this year though, with my consumer electronics retailing eye skimming over the pages, I realized that the book—which shipped ahead of the Black Friday holiday shopping weekend—could prove to be a useful tool for the CE retailers out there who are looking to gauge the interest of their consumer base. I mean, the words are right there on the cover of the damn thing. “2017 Tech Trends: Tomorrow’s Best Gifts… Available Today.”
So as I was going through this year’s Sharper Image book, the items I circled were less about things that I wanted (maybe…) and more about proving the fact that this recently-bankrupt company probably has a better sense of the latest tech trends than most CE retailers out there.
