Of course somebody likes them, they are a great idea.
GORE GALORE's IDEA!!!! LOL. That is why we have a whole line of them. It is not just a prop. It is a prop with a purpose. No vendor had made barrel toppers before we did that I know of so it really feels like our idea.
Sorry I am even posting on your thread, but you even bring up the name of my company. I know you are not being nasty. but it still feels disrespectful, especially when you order from us, and what's worse talk about ordering more.
OH, and what's worse. I go to your facebook page and I see you also knock off our "fried eggs and sam" prop. And what is worse is even the composition is the same. SO, rather than taking an idea and running with the concept, you copy it exactly as is. I am sorry to tell you but this is horrible business practice.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
I actually like it when a home haunter uses the ideas, They are not out to make a buck off the idea. They just want to be creative. but it always tweaks my shorts when a vendor can't be original enough to come up with their own concepts.
And if you have NOT figured it out yet. Being original is the secret to not only having the greatest pride in what you do, but also success. Just copying others work just puts people out of business. Just ask the couple companies that have copied our giant costumes over the last couple years. They always accused me of bashing them, but I never did anything. The buyers expressed their disdain for their actions and just didn't order from them. SO, their lack of success was squarely on their shoulders.
Come on man, this is a blatant rip. I am not saying you are TRYING to do anything wrong, or being nasty about it. But atleast have a little respect for other vendors and for yourself by not copying what others are doing. But even worse is you set the price so low to undercut our price to make more sales, but what you don't realize is you are also making NO money on them. You are NOT calculating your time + materials + overhead + profit. You are most likely loosing money on them.
And I posted a couple pics of the bucket toppers. remember we also do barrel toppers.
Just no respect!!!!!!!!!
