Russell, the donation thing got me thinking. But the thought was that some very well constructed, and nice looking chairs, and rather unattended. Most of the areas I have been around they would probably find their way into someone’s trunk.

Also the tourist and school kid statement brought about a thought. Surely you have boy scouts, girl scouts, school bands or sports, where the children are having a fund raiser sales thing now and again. How about you make up a few chairs perhaps along with a small table and donate them for a drawing or raffle? The tickets could link to your web page and the donated lawn furniture be displayed at your site or the school. Shame to sort of take advantage of the kids this way, lol, but if the total prize value is good enough it might generate both interest in your product and help to buy band uniforms or what have you. Look at how little the girl scout troops actually receive for cookie sales, I heard it is not much.

A plan like this could be done with a number of different groups and even a number of towns within a reasonable drive of your hometown. It’s good community spirit and might even be a tax deduction and it would get your product in front of a lot of peoples eyes, at least in my warped brain.
