Architecture Swag...

The folks at Pella Windows are really pulling out all the stops to try and solicit my business. They sent me this handsome set of authentic naugahyde coasters -- impeccably hand-stitched by a nine-year-old Malaysian boy -- with the company name proudly emblazoned on top. The set of four came complete with a handy coaster caddy that will demonstrate to my dinner guests that I am a man of style and distinction. Plus, they're low-maintenance and can be easily cleaned with Muriatic Acid and some tack cloth.

OK, all you Andersen Window people. The ball's in your court. You want my business? Whaddya got for me? And it better not be another rhinestone-encrusted tape measure. I've got four already.

Man, nothing says "swank" like a set of naughahyde Pella coasters. I thought that my free pen from the bank was the cat's meow.

When o when will I be considered "swag worthy"?

All that crap ends up in fishing cabins up north. Only useful for setting your cold bud on so the crappy coffee table in the cabin doesn't get a stain - oops, too late! We already cleaned fish on it with our MENARDS emblazoned fillet knife.

Wow. Those are fancy.

teamslinger said...

Impressive. All you get when in the veterinary industry are pens that look like syringes and stuffed animals.

We just got Pella windows in January. Love them. And the Anderson Windows - which I considered inferior anyway - gave us an obscenely high quote.

i sold mine for $56,000

then again they did look like the virgin mary
