HOW is this madman BENT on spreading INSANITY across THE NATION???
With his nefarious new site Make Your Own Clothespins!!!
I thought it was nutty when Herrick announced his plan to create American-made clothespins as a home business… but now he’s spreading the wackiness by encouraging other home-based entrepreneurs to do the same.
Where will it end?
I hate to think about it.
Though I admit, I do love the idea of homemade clothespins. In fact, I’ve bought at least three sets of Herrick’s Classic American Clothespins. And I’ve reviewed them.
But whoa… making clothespins is serious work. Even the assembly takes time.
Check out Herrick’s new site and you’ll see what it takes to make a great clothespin.
Accusations of insanity aside, it’s really about time that manufacturing starts coming home to our respective states, rather than being sent off overseas by the Federal Government and its corporate bedbuddies.
It might be tough to start making clothespins at home – but it’s very American to run a home-based business.
When everything collapses and the flow of cheap crap from China ceases, I think we’ll be glad folks like Herrick were thinking ahead.
I’ve run a media business from home, a writing business, and now a nursery. None of them have made me rich except in experience. Call me crazy, but that’s good enough for me. And I’m debt-free.
Bonus: no office politics.
Now I think I’ll go and do some laundry, just because it’s CRAZY FUN to use American-made clothespins.

Thanks very much for writing about new web site. Your past review of my Classic American clothespins is probably one of the best product reviews ever written in the history of product reviews. I laugh to myself every time I read it (or as they say, LOL). I laugh even though you make fun of me and say I'm totally insane. Thank you for letting the world know….. 🙂
I thought it was quite counter-culture to simply offer your plans to other businesses. Most people fight to hide everything so their secrets aren't revealed. Keep on being inspiring.
Also, I figure calling you insane isn't technically slander. If I ever had a court case against me, I'd just show them a clip of a naked chicken bouncing around in the bottom of a half-drum. If that didn't work, I'd follow it up with a grainy video of apples being fed into a garbage disposal. "SEE? SEE?"
Absolutely. It would be a slam-dunk. All the evidence is on your side. I don't have a case. Guilty as charged…..
But you're not totally sane yourself. You know that, right?
And I, for one, am an avid reader of BOTH of you gentlemen's blogs…thanks, guys!
