I cannot wait to fill this the rest of the way up and start working on the second layer. I've got my current 7 medals hanging, and should have layer one on the hooks complete by 1/1/11. I don't know what else to say about these things except that I absolutely love them... so I decided to do a question and answer session with owner and creator, Marcey.
Me: How did you come up with the concept for SportHooks?
( I moved away from just calling them medal displays when I was running a marathon ..which gives me lots of time to think :)...that I needed to come up with a unique term for my product since you can hang more than just medals...and then it came to me :" SportHooks" and then proceeded to trademark the name which is not an easy thing to do. )
Me: What is your favorite of all the designs you've ever created?
Marcey: My first design, the 26.2 10 Hook, is a favorite design because it was obviously the first. Each design that I've been involved with becomes a favorite because of the personal attention and work to get the design right . Hard to pick an overall favorite..its like trying to pick a favorite marathon..each one has a uniqueness all it's own.The Sporthooks that I've designed for Cancer Charities are uniquely special and very meaningful . My newest design is the Rock n Run and I love it ! It will debut at the Rock n Roll San Antonio marathon 11/12 !
Me: Your "danglers" are super cute too. What made you add those to your line?
Me: What are your goals for SportHooks in the future?
Marcey: My goal for SportHooks is to become a strong, recognizable brand across many sports and interests.
Me: Anything else you'd like us to know?
Marcey: I would like you to know that I am a 50 Stater (almost finished), and a Marathon Maniac! Besides shipping Internationally ( Germany, UK, Singapore, Canada, Denmark etc.) I've shipped my designs to 48 of the 50 States..Alaska and Wyoming are holding out on me...shout out to anyone there..its time to order! Fun Fact:: My designs have flown on Air Force One (can't mention any names ;) ) Important Fact: I have the best customers out there! Many thanks to all my repeat customers that spread the word and have been loyal followers. Looking forward to my new customers!
Important note: This product was purchased on my own. This review at the top is my personal opinion, and my question/answer session with Marcey is uneditted.
Ready for the best part? Marcey has agreed to directly ship one of her 5-hook designs directly to one of my fabulous readers.
