For those concerned about pickpockets or walking around a city with valuables on their person, McCulley shared an expert recommendation with the Speakeasy Travel Supply Scarf.
“These awesome travel scarfs are made in Massachusetts,” said McCulley. “They have a hidden pocket for keeping passports or other valuable items. The best part: No pickpocket will ever get there! It is a great way to go out in a new city without a purse."

Cape Business Owner Wins Mask Design Contest - September 2020
"Speakeasy was chosen after hundreds of other companies entered the contest. Issues regarding sizing, ear loops, speaking, and more were addressed in the award-winning design. The washable and reusable mask is adjustable in size and can be totally sealed around the face while also allowing for easy breathing and talking, Salvon added, due to the loose fabric. The design has non-coronavirus uses, too; Salvon said that the mask can also be worn as a scarf or a headband.
While she could not have imagined doing so at the start of the year, Salvon said that she’s glad to be able to produce a product that can help the local community practice a healthier and more comfortable lifestyle in the age of COVID-19."
Centerville Company Wins Mask-Making Challenge - August 2020
"The winning Speakeasy entry, awarded by a panel of expert judges, was a two-sided, fully adjustable mask with no ear loops that can be worn like a scarf and pulled up when needed to cover the mouth and nose. It features a built-in nose bridge, which is removable, and a pocket for a filter. Unlike a tight-fitting neck gaiter, the Speakeasy invention is adjustable and elastic, and features all of the safety and security of a face mask."
"On Friday, July 24, 2020, a panel of expert judges declared Speakeasy Travel Supply of Cape Cod the winner of the first COVID-19 Intrapreneur Challenge, a competition focused on companies pivoting operations to produce general-use face masks. Founded in 2013 and a woman owned business, Speakeasy makes a wide variety of goods for savvy travelers. Since the pandemic began, the company has pivoted operations to make adjustable cotton face masks for medical workers and the general public. As the winning company, Speakeasy was awarded a $25,000 prize to boost production of their line of masks."
"In February, Salvon started making cotton face masks for the medical community after hearing about a lack of PPE at hospitals and care facilities. Since then, she started selling them publicly to support her Buy One Mask – Give One Mask initiative. To date, she has donated more than 1,000 masks to frontline organizations, including Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Mass General Hospital, and has no plans of stopping anytime soon. The masks are available for adults and kids, alike, and have scored rave reviews from customers. “I love these face masks,” Rebekah Vacca said. “They are comfortable and look great. Plus, I like that they are reversible with different patterns so I can match them with my outfits.”
"Great for traveling and shopping. Hands-free. The scarf goes with everything. Love it."
