Miss Milly, a British brand offering colourful jewellery, scarves and accessories, has introduced a collection of necklace style lanyards for face masks - and we think they offer strong pick-up sales potential.
Sarah Watmore, founder of Miss Milly, says, “There are many situations where people are constantly putting their facemasks on and then taking them off again. People in occupations such as teaching, retail and sales roles, and the general public out shopping, will be doing this a lot. Rather than then keeping your mask in your pocket or bag, with a lanyard, you can have it hanging around your neck.”
The Miss Milly lanyards attach to your facemask elastic by means of a lobster clasp at each end of the necklace style item. The lanyards each measure 60cm or 24” in length. There are three different designs, one of which comes in three colours, giving a total of five styles to choose from.
