About a year ago, at a family reunion, my golfing brother in law asked me if I’d ever heard of Kent Wool socks. Uh, no, I replied (and why would I have?). He proceeded to go into a fifteen minute diatribe about the qualities and virtues of these amazing socks, going so far as to say that they’d actually visibly improved his golf game. Hmmm, I thought, maybe we should get some for the store? It took a little convincing, back at the shop, but once others came on board and we brought in our first batch of socks and watched them fly out the door, there was no more need to convince. Just a bunch of thankful clients and store owners, praising brother Bobby for this wonderful tip.
We have always wanted Huff Harrington Home to be a collection of “all the things we love” and of course most of all, that includes all the things YOU love. And sure enough, we rely on our friends and relatives to help us fill the shelves with special and unusual products that we “can’t live without” — or at least that put a smile on our faces every time we use them.
Take, for example, the Govino glasses. My sweet friend Claudia was sailing on a friend’s boat in Maine when she discovered these glasses. On one of our Sunday morning walks, she said, “Have you heard about these great looking unbreakable plastic wine goblets that have a thumb print and feel and look like fancy crystal tumblers?” I had no idea what she was talking about but a little search after our walk, led to a small order of Govino glasses, which led to a bigger order which led to our selling 600 Govino boxes in three months last year! Most importantly, every time I see a Govino, I think of Claudia. And it puts a smile on my face.
The stories of friends passing on their favorite product tips go on like this, over and over.
So you see, we couldn’t do it without you — or Bobby, Claudia, Greg, Kelly, Clementine, Sherry, Helen, Catherine or Linda! And in order to have a store filled with all the things we love, we’d love your input more than anything. Is there a magical product that you can’t live without? A favorite toy that you found on one of your travels? Or do you have a friend or relative who has developed something new and fabulous? Tell us about it.
There is a little gift certificate reward waiting in the wings if we adopt your product suggestion. But more importantly, we’ll be forever grateful to you for suggesting it and for helping us stock our store with all the things we love. Who knows … we may name it after you … but at the very least, you know it will put a smile on our face!
