Wickliffe inventor creates Shore Shelf ~ the newest beach accessory!
As you head to the beach this summer, do you find yourself irritated by the thought of the sand? Well, why get frustrated by the sand when, now, you can have freedom from it? Melanie Melaragno, a life-long resident, developed Shore Shelf, an award-winning, one-of-a-kind, outdoor accessory product. It was an idea born out of frustration during her vacation when she went to pick up her drink and got sand all over her. Immediately, she thought, “there has to be something that easily attaches onto any chair or table frame, hold your drink, phone, reading material, and fold-up to travel with you wherever you want to go.” After doing extensive research, she discovered there wasn’t a product on the market that met her need. From there, she began sketching, networking, and teaching herself how to develop a product and bring it to market. That product, Shore Shelf, arrived in June and is heating up the outdoor market.
