    Dear Mr. Strauss, We have passed by your shop for many years, but never stopped in. Recently a family member recommended you, so we stopped in last weekend. We are so glad we did!        Mrs. F.    Tacoma, Washington


thank you so much for contacting me. i called my sister and i had given you an old address and i didn't realize. it's nice ordering from you because you're so personal, because you're not a giant generic company. here is her new address:___ thank you again!!!    jm    new york



Dear Mr. Strauss! After coming back to your website again and again over the years I just wanted to thank you for all the efforts you have put into this site. Quite often I have found answers here with you. As a collector (and seller) of petrified wood I am always very careful not to claim to know something I cannot really prove and I do enjoy your words on all the nonsense spread on fairs and ebay.
Many greetings from Vienna, Austria
Sincerely P H 


Hi Ed,
Thank you for replying to my email so quickly.  I sent my order by mail, so
you should receive it in a few days.  I was pleased to find your nice products
on the Internet.  My 8 year old grandson has requested an arrowhead for
Christmas, so thanks to you, he will be happy.

Mr. Strauss:
I was happy to see your website.  The maple rolling pin we bought from
you about 20 years ago is still a mainstay of our kitchen.  We have
other things from you and have bought for friends as well.  We get up to
the northwest (from Los Angeles) once every year or two, and maybe once
in four years drive to Mt. Rainier.  We always look for your shop.  Now
we know to call ahead and find out when you will be in.

Thanks Ed,
I arrived in Austria two days ago and the arrowhead necklace was already
waiting for me. It looks really amazing and unique - I have never seen such
a real looking arrowhead before. Thank you for your efforts and the smooth
handling. I hope you keep on making these beautiful artworks for a long
Best wishes,
Maria    Austria


Can't wait to see the 3 (rolling pins).  Am about to go make pies with the purple heart one you made and I bought about 10 years ago.  It has been to Hawaii for 3 years; and most recently to Germany for a year with us.  Does a wonderful job.  I am so glad you had a web site and I could get some for my family for this Christmas.
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.

Sorry it's taken so long for me to write you. The (arrowhead) necklace arrived a while ago and it's fantastic. I'm an archaeologist in Connecticut, Central Connecticut State University. I teach a course in experimental archaeology and have banged on my share of rocks. You do great work and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the necklace.

Take care,    Kenny
