RECORD READERS RESPOND TO COLUMN ON THE CRAIG COUNTY MUG

Brian:

How fun to read about our Craig Co. mug!  It’s hard to beat a good shopping trip.

I have seen those mugs ‘around’.  I think a couple were for sale in the Secret Garden’s gift shop, back in the day, but I don’t know their origin.

I am posting queries on a couple Facebook pages.  It would be wonderful if your article, or at least the mug photo, could show up there. And please share any responses you receive. We’ll watch your column.

Letter to Sports:

About 20 years ago Holey Wadey and I started a little business called Killer Novelties.  This business was named after my little six pound toy poodle whose name was Killer.

We sold several items; t-shirts, ball caps and mugs with the courthouse and date on them. It was a great surprise to see the mug pictured in this weeks paper.  In fact my mother saw it first and recognized it as the ones we sold.  She and I still have one in the cabinet.

So they weren’t produced for a special occasion but you finding that one in Pennsylvania kind of makes it special for me.  Thanks for your writing efforts.

Sincerely,  Anita Hinson
