North Jackson company selected as vendor for RNC in Cleveland

Posted: Updated:

Things Remembered in North Jackson will have it's own booth in the Freedom Marketplace at the Republican National Convention.

"They chose 22 vendors out of thousands that applied to be in there," said Mike Lukco with Things Remembered.

The company is now producing a special line of products just for the convention. "We have a beautiful thermos mug, a travel mug type thing and we've got the RNC logo embossed on it.  We have a beautiful key chain with the logo.  And we have the official hot sauce of the Republican National Convention, " Lukco said.

Getting permission to use the official RNC logo was not an easy process, according to Lukco.

The company first had to demonstrate the quality of it's finished product and one of the requirements was that everything had to be made in the U.S.

The FBI also investigated the company and every employee going to the convention had a background check.  The marketplace booth will only be open to those attending the convention and Things Remembered will have a total of 40 items to choose from. "It's a memento, it's a way to commemorate the event, " Lukco said.
