carrying a distinctive scent for 48 universities.  The company's
founder, Dan Klamka launched the concept in 1992 with the scent
of his alma-mater -- Michigan.  Klamka: "If college merchandise
can be on ties and sweatshirts and hats, why can't it be on a
fragrance?"  Michigan is currently the hottest selling aroma,

additional 15,000 1994 World Series baseballs.  Collectors say

planning to step up store openings in MA as part of a plan to
take over the market.  The company plans to add four or five
stores to its current three in the state (BOSTON HERALD,
