Anything Brands Online Division Tradesman Tool Achieves Record Performance Results

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - December 29, 2008) - Anything Brands Online, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ANYT) announced today that its Tradesman Tool Division (www.tradesmantool.com) has set record performance results in December setting the stage for an optimistic 2009!

Brad Miller, Manager of Tradesman Operations, stated, "December sales we're up over 100% from last December and 75% from November 2008. We have added over 500 new products and freshened up the look of the site." Miller also stated, "We previously announced a new dealer program set to establish a group of 100 independent dealers throughout the U.S. in 2009 and as of this time have the wheels in motion to have 20 on-board by mid-January. We have started a new monthly 'Smokin-Deal' promotion which is a flyer with aggressive pricing on various products being faxed or emailed to hundreds of target customers and we are beginning a direct mailing campaign with customized catalogs in January. We will start by sending a copy to each of our existing customers along with a flyer for each to sign on as an affiliate of Tradesman Tool. I expect the spring to be very good and this should be a positive thing for all of us. Amazon.com had a record sales year so even though retail store sales are slow shoppers are buying more online. We are set to increase our market share position as an Online Retailer of Automotive & Industrial Tools & Equipment."

Anything Brands Online previously announced that its Board of Directors approved a dividend distribution to shareholders of record as of February 15, 2009. Shareholders holding in excess of one hundred thousand (100,000) shares of ANYT Common Stock on that date will receive (1) share of ANYT Common Stock for every (10) shares of ANYT stock held on February 15, 2009. For example, if an ANYT shareholder had 500,000 shares of ANYT stock and held it through February 15, 2009, that shareholder would receive 50,000 shares of restricted ANYT common stock as a dividend payment.
