Since this video/song was Christmas themed;) I wanted to share a video I saw a week or two ago. Small business marketing at it's finest, not high budget reminds me to a degree of the old Folgers commercials which I always liked and still strike a cord with me all these years later I think you guys will like it.

And if you liked that here are the past two years ads from them also.

Given I had the time and ability I'd certainly go ahead and do something like this but I don't think it's in the cards at the moment;)

Merry Christmas!

Luke,

Seldom does advertising tug so gently at the heartstrings.

I just had to look up the location of that store.

Dating back to 1895, Hadfod Hardware is located in the town of Rhayader in Mid-Wales.

Yep just a small hardware store ;) I love the ads though all of them just that classic Christmas feel and emotion.

They got a lot of exposure from Mike Rowe posting about it which is why they have so many views. But I think it's pretty cool to see them get exposure for just doing what they do;)

Take care

Luke

This isn't the most active place on the interwebs these days, but it is one of two gun-forums that I still check often.  I like this place because you guys are all a class act.

Merry Christmas!
