Mike Pence’s wife, Karen Pence put her business,“That’s My Towel!” Charm, Inc., on hold this weekend following the confirmation of her husband as Donald Trump’s running mate.Indiana’s First Lady was selling possibly the most useful invention to ever hit the market — Towel Charms.
But what, exactly, is a Towel Charm?
Well, put simply, they’re silver charms to put on your towels so that you can tell them apart from other towels and also improve the way that they look.
Although neither Mike nor Karen Pence have publicly commented, it’s eerily suspicious that the company’s website, towelcharm.com, went dark within 24 hours of Trump’s announcement that Mike Pence would be his running mate. The company’s etsy has also since been removed.
The website’s landing page now reads:
Prior to the seemingly temporary shut down of the business, according to Jezebel, the website read,
“Most of us have matching bath and beach towels, so it is easy to get them confused,”
“I have had so many times where I was swimming at a friend’s beach house, pool, or lake house, using their matching beautiful beach towels. Lo and behold, I would go in the water for a dip or up to the house for a beverage, and when I came back to my towel, it was gone! Someone else had grabbed my towel unknowingly…because all of the towels looked the same.”
It seems that Karen Pence has found a solution to a problem that really doesn’t exist for anyone else.
