Better than Socks - Fathers Day Approaches

Marketing is alive and well at Barrington Pottery
I've had these on the shelf over the past week
as an antidote to the traditional socks or Tie.
I'm down to my last 3 pint tankards
so I've decided to offer half pint tankards at £10
including a free bottle of Cider.
Burrow Hill Cider did me a deal on the Cider..

I've tried it myself, just as a precaution....

I also understand that not all Men like Cider,
so rather than just telling them to
"Bugger Off"
I have a nice selection of larger Mugs for Men.
If like me in a previous life, you spend half your day drinking
out of these paper cups,
Then you might just like to drink from a real hand made mug
when you get home.

I have the added Bonus this year of having my Birthday
on Fathers day, so it's a double whammy for me.
I've told my Three Daughters, that Mum bought me 22 pairs
of socks for Christmas and I haven't worn a Tie
since August 2008.
So it will be interesting to what they come up with.

Much better than socks, ties or paper cups.
Happy Father's day/Birthday. I hope you enjoy the day.

Damn. Wish I could include cider with every mug I sell. Good luck with that, Paul. We've got a show here in Falmouth this weekend. By the end of the day Saturday I will probably need a couple of ciders. And happy birthday, too.

Hi, Just returned here to remind you regarding Mobile Monopoly. This is a great technique and WILL make you money, especially seeing as you own a website. Take a quick look at their video, the system is about using Mobile Advertising which is brand new and an unexposed market where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I assure you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think. http://mobile-mastermind.com
