|The "Factory Seconds" 30-clothespin kit|
Well, the initial offering of Classic American clothespin kits was a great success. I sold 191 out of 225 of the 20-clothespin kits in 48 hours. The kits were shipped out to people all over the world. My sincere thanks to everyone who purchased one or more of the kits. I hope the clothespins you finish and assemble will be objects of beauty and utility that you enjoy using for many years to come.
I still have a few (very few) of the kits in stock and they are available at This Link.
I would also like to announce that I have now put together a small quantity of 30-clothespin "factory seconds" kits, as pictured above. They are the absolute best Classic American clothespin value. You can read about them and order them at This Link.
My next step is to get a specifications package together and see if I can ignite an interest in woodworkers around the world to make their own Classic American clothespins, either as gifts or a craft business.
Thanks again to all of you reading this who participated in the launch of this little home enterprise.
