My addiction started early in life. Some were cute; some were
plain.Some were large and some were small. There were those that
would flowerand those that would bear fruit ----- it made no
difference to me. Iwas hooked !
As I look back over the years, I can recall with certainty the
actualevent that kept me riveted to my hobby and down the path of
personalfulfillment. I signed up for my first series of hands-on
bonsai classesand later joined my first bonsai club. It was there
that I could engrossmyself in the techniques of the ancient art of
bonsai. Before too long, I was teaching the craft to my family and
friends and becoming moreand more immersed in bonsai activities.
Then I joined a second bonsaiclub. By this time, my small
collection had become a large collection,and then a huge collection. My wife and I knew, caredfor, and named each and
everyone of our trees ---- they became our funfamily.
As time passed, we took our hobby of personally growing and
trainingbonsai to another level. We took the show "on the road" to
street fairs,craft and flower shows and finally to malls. You can
imagine how difficultit was lugging around 5000 lbs. of trees,
setting up and breaking downour display, being away from home for
days on end.
Like our trees, wetoo grew older and realized that in order to
remain active in bonsai,we needed a better way to market our
products. In 1993, well beforethe average person heard of
cyberspace, we created a website which hasexpanded over the years
to meet the needs of our customers. Today ourinternet business has
grown to the point where our cyber customers areour primary focus
and we no longer do shows.
We keep our prices low by hiring no outside help. As a highly
successfulfamily operated business, we take great pride in
providing special attentionto each and every order. Our customers
appreciate the care and effortthat we put into selecting and
shipping their trees. By utilizing thelatest packaging and shipping
techniques, we also add to the impressivenessof each gift.
