Requests from customers...
I had an interesting request from a customer yesterday. He was looking at my selection of Gary Rith pottery and he says to me: "Does this guy do a bacon press? I can not find a bacon press to fit my frying pan! If this guy did one of those I would buy it." I told him I would be happy to ask the artist if he would consider making him one, and I would need to know the size of his frying pan.
The gentlemen than said "I bet he could sell a lot of those- they are hard to find". I explained to my customer that I might be able to get Gary to make one, but since he is a vegan he probably would not want to go into the bacon utensil business! He understood, hey Gary- want to do me a favor? you could put a little piggy on top!
