    Show Success

    The 45th Red Deer Sportsman & Outdoor Adventure Show March 4th, 5th & 6th that I was invited to attend by the show promoters was a great success for me!

    Sold 108 pens over the 3 days. Mostly Rifle Cartridge Bullet Pens along with a few Feather and Tied Flies and Feathers.
    Sold 8-50 Caliber pens which really surprised me.

    I was approached with some great marketing opportunities by a couple of Hunting and Fishing Lodge businesses to supply Rifle Cartridge Bullet pens, Feather and Tied Fly and Feather pens.
    Was also asked if I would be willing to get my products into the Asian market.

    I was asked by many businesses if I had a website, which I don't, and had offers to help me set up a website at no cost to me.

    Oh, to be 21 again!

    The show promoters invited me to attend next years show.


    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Congratulations Les ! You have a good set up and that makes people stop for a look.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That's wonderful, Les. Yeah, you should do a website. These days it can really help a business.....there are probably lots of people looking for you on the internet...
