Friday Fotos:  What's The Well-Dressed Listing Key Chain Wearing?

The other day, I dropped by my local Ace Hardware Store in DC's Tenleytown to have keys made for a new listing.  And what a surprise!

These were only a few choices among various designer keys, heralding the end of the boring key ring!  Unfortunately, I didn't see these until after the key guy was cutting me a boring one.  But next time!  I really think that they need a hunky guy key to go along with this cutie!

Funny, but I shudder to think how the "hunky guy" will  be displayed.

Hi Patricia,

Cool, this might be a great marketing thing...... get personalized keys (not just the rings) like the picture, enjoy your weekend.

It would certainly make find the right key much easier in a whole ring...sorry that chick doesn't do anything for me.

Glenn, maybe it'll be a head and sixpack of the old Arnold!

Peter & Linda, it certainly makes it easier to find the right one quickly.

And Don, nor for me, unless she saves me a few seconds every time I open a door to my new listing.

How neat, I really like them.  A new life for keys.  I'm going to check out our ACE to see if they have them for our next keys.

There's probably a reason there are only a few of those keys left while the competing designs are mostly still left on the display.

Those are super cute and of course, super cute is the best.

Pat - That's a creative way to spice up the key bowl on my desk.  Look-alike keys are on the way out!

Pat - when I had a new key made for myself so I could get into my daughter's place I chose a psychedelic wavy key that really stands out! My granddaughter thinks the key is 'cool'!

Pat, I read one of the comment about personlize the key...may be a good closing gift for the buyers.
