Well, First off sorry for not being on here much, been busy with work and new customers. A friend on Facebook has started ordering from me. At first it was 1 pen and now we are up to 4 pens, 2 key chains, and to hand carved spoons. To the tune of $ 125.00. I could not be happier. Plus the $20.00 she already spent on the first pen.

Congrats, Rick. It is encouraging to have satisfied customers who see the value in your work and order more. If you want to build your customer base, consider asking her to write a recommendation and tell her friends via FB.
Keep up the good work!

Being a retired guy, I can stay busy selling to FB friends also. Actually more than I have time for.

I have a lot of friends and my wife and 4 daughters have a lot of friends, and their friends have a …..well, you get the pic.

Sometimes I post something made for my wife or kids and they share it.

Sometimes, some one will post a pic and say Uncle Mike, can you make one of these for me. :-)
