HOLIDAY SHOPPING AT THE ACB STORE by Carla Ruschival

ACB teddy bears, ACB Treasures collectible mugs, magnets, steins and shot glasses, canes, toys and jewelry - you'll find all these things and more in the ACB Store.

A new line of logo products and ACB Treasures collectibles debuted at this year's conference and convention in Louisville.  Visitors to the ACB Store in the exhibit hall found cuddly plush teddy bears wearing ACB logos on their vests.  There were sippy cups, Thermos products, baseball jerseys, super-sized coffee mugs, shot glasses, steins and magnets, all proudly sporting the ACB logo.  Our canine friends were part of the action, too; ACB logo doggie T-shirts were barking up the right tree.

But that wasn't all.  A new line of collectibles, called ACB Treasures, greeted each visitor to the booth.  The conference theme was "ACB: Full Steam Ahead"; a picture of two steamboats racing up the Ohio River on a beautiful sunny day in May, with the Louisville skyline in the background, adorned the official program cover and found its way onto shot glasses, beer steins, magnets, coffee mugs, and much more.  These same products were also available with an image of Churchill Downs from years past, taken from the winner's circle and showing the fans, flowers and beauty of the track on its biggest day of the year.

These are just some examples of the exciting new products in the ACB Store this holiday season.  There's something for everyone on your shopping list; some items can even be personalized with a name or year.
