In 1986, Bob and Marjorie started to advertise across the board and began to sell internationally. In the beginning they shipped just 1,000-2,000 products a year but with the creation of their website,, in 2001, the product lines expanded to fit the need. Sadly, Marjorie’s husband Bob passed away in 2018.

Marj specializes in finance and the overall operations. She also oversees the exporting side of the business, customer service and sales.
