they are clever ,cut @ 38% they balance wine bottles beautifully !!

P.S. I just got new camera !! Sony Cyber ShotHX9V

16megapixels Price $400 it produces stunning shots !! the pic here is good example of the great pics it takes !!
I looked at the reveiw sites for this camera, and all photographers gave it the thumbs up for everything it does !!
I saved heaps ,because i was looking at getting a Cannon DSLR !!! but was blown away by the reveiws for this camera !! really happy !!!

Have a great day !!

Good job on the sales. What is the finish on those holders? They look interesting.

Very nice candle holders, glad to hear someone is selling things right now :P I have some wine bottle holders up for sale, but have only sold 4. I wanted to get more out for sale, but ended up making more Christmas presents and sellable items…
Sony makes a good line of cameras, though I am a Nikon guy through and through. I am hoping to start using my photography skills to advertise my woodworking, though most of my camera equipment is sill packed away from moving this past summer.
Nice work, and congrats on all the sales!

Sorry but I can’t make out much with the tiny pics. Maybe take a closer pic of a couple? :) Cropping would be good too. Congrats on the sales.

Yes to all “Made In USA” products. A real bonus for all concerned, creating jobs, using local material, building up our fragile economy. Good Job!

I would b happier with a piece of fresh fruit in my stocking 4 sure

consumerism ended for me a long time ago, but that doesnt mean that I have forgotten a single thing, that way back when, where I made something, for someone I loved, and for that single moment

it made a difference.

In a very good way : ))

For a moment there I thought you were making/selling dominoes for the sight-impaired.

Hmmmm, that gives me an idea.

Merry Christmas!
