naked wine story

So it was in April earlier this year i got a random phone call from a buyer at naked wines.  I didn’t know what naked wines was, so i had to look them up and low and behold they sell wine! They sell wine memberships actually….
The buyer told me that he was looking for a type of gift that could fit into a wine bottle case with one wine bottle.  That way they could ship out the wine with a special gift.

So my wheels got turning….and i talk to Dad about it and we came up with these boards.

Dad spent about two hours coming up with these four different styles.  Two of them are just small enough for cutting and displaying cheese and the other two are good to use for holding your wine glass with putting a little cheese and crackers on the board.

So I submitted my photos and he liked them and asked for a prototype.  I sent all four along and then the waiting began.

I waited……followed up……waited some more……followed up and waited some more.

And then I got the “unfortunately” email.  This email is only ok if you are writing it not the other way around.  Anyways we have 4 new different types of wood products to sell and I plan on putting them on the website soon.

 I did follow up with the buyer last week to find out how the vendor they did choose and their products are selling, but they are not to market yet.  I tell you what, he answered my email!  That’s a good sign that maybe he likes me and will consider our products in the future.

website additions & wine and chocolate festival

I wanted to create more natural products for the home in storage solutions but also more than just cutting boards,  I have added a few new items to my website and wanted to show them here;
 
I love this one because its all natural Walnut Lumber and its coated with pure mineral oil to bring out the brilliance of color. 
 
I actually use these every day on my coffee table.  They are so pretty and each one is unique. 
Just add pure mineral oil to them every once in awhile to bring out their beautiful color. 
 
This is a fun one, your own set of 4 pieces of Walnut Toast!  I love toast and I know you would love these! 
 
Let me know what you think of these new items…….and this Weekend Feb. 11th & 12th come to
