Sample text

Henry Ford could not sell his Model T—today! However, we tried to make the loss worthwhile. When a basket wasn’t selling, we made it a practice to ask customers what they didn’t like about it. We solicited their ideas and redesigned accordingly. The idea for a number of our baskets came from someone with a particular need. We had designed a jewelry tray that we thought was very pretty. It didn’t sell. Then one day a customer picked it up and pointed out that slightly enlarged and with two dividers it would make a beautiful utensil tray for outdoor picnics and barbecues.

We were simply lucky, as we were older, had experienced other professions, and knew our capabilities.
