Default Polish Trivet

Had a guy want a trivet for a gift for Polish friends. I happened to have a white quartz 12 x 12 trivet (they're hard to come by here) that would really look good with a red Polish Eagle - also the Polish colors.

Masked, scratched (ok, V-carved), and painted.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

That's great. Another item to add to your marketing. I think I'd find out about getting Polish Eagles sewn into hats. I suggest you not use red hats or a slogan like, "Make Poland Great Again. That might flop (or not).

Sorry John, just having a little fun, but I think hats and small items such as Polish Eagles on small disks for coffee cups would be a viable item. To be honest, I'd have a couple of hats made with a stamp inside with your contact informaion on it. I'd wear one and have at least a minimum discount order on hand next event, just to see what happens. You don't have to do any work to speak of and you will have a nice paid for ad. Lots of people will ask "where'd you get that?" I have a friend named Bugaiski in N. Carolina I'm thinking about who is proud of his heritage. He's an optometrist and teaches one of our courses. He'd love one of your items.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

That trivet turned out great. Like Tom said this would be another item to add to your line of Polish Eagles.

Always have a handful of those on hand with no text - just the eagle.

I really like the trivet, John, and I think it's a great addition to your product line.
