Default Wooden pen boxes

You may remember that I recently posted a wooden pen box that only cost me $4.63 in Oz and made it un-economic to make my own. Well guys, take a look at this US site which makes mine quite expensive!

Yup, you can buy them very inexpensively here. Very much so. I have to tell you I gave my pen and pen boxes as executive gifts this year and the big boss really enjoyed his and the fact that it was hand made and finished he said meant a lot to him. If I was to sell them I would get as much as the pen. I gave some pens to clients as well for gifts this year and one of them called me last week and took the last pen I had off my hand for $30.00 and after that he informed he wanted 5 more pens between may and this next september. I will throw in a inexpensive pen case with those and 2 of them he has requested custom boxes. I will probably wood burn these with initials .. floral etc. Quite exciting. But if I can get 30.00 for a pen i will definitely throw in a 2:00 case Am I getting rich... noooooo some would get twice that for the same pen but it just keeps me in pocket money for the shop
Just seems crazy that it costs as much as it does in Austrailia for the same imported items. Why is that Harry?

Glenmore says to avoid that site as several guys he knows have paid their money but not received the goods.

Corey, apart from the exchange rate, at the moment about 79 US cents to our dollar, there is far less competition over here.
