HaldeCraft, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HaldeCo. Working to create a better life for YOU. smilcher June 6, 2010 at 2:16 pm 11 years ago Reply Haldemics? (Haldeman + ceramics) Nah, I don’t really like it either. Lorena June 8, 2010 at 9:09 am 11 years ago Reply I love that! Bonus points for the fact it sounds like a futuristic EvilCorp logo that accidentally brings about the Robot Overlord Apocalypse. 🙂 Barbara June 8, 2010 at 11:46 am 11 years ago Reply Well of course that’s what I had in mind. You may thank my brother for planting the seeds of this years ago, when he created the (not entirely fictious) company Dubious Enterprises, with assorted subsidiary companies. Such as It’s The Shirts, a silk-screened t-shirt company, and Dirty Sink Photography (self-explanatory). My personal favourite was The Nice Insurance Company. Sample sales pitch to prospective customer (delivered in a subtly ominous tone): “Nice little sports car you’ve got there. To bad if something were to happen to it. How’d you like to buy some nice sportscar insurance?” The Nice Insurance Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dubious Enterprises. Quinn June 6, 2010 at 7:33 pm 11 years ago Reply I would go with HaldeCraft, as it can easily be expanded to lines other than ceramics. Lorena June 8, 2010 at 9:10 am 11 years ago Reply Like HaldeSoap! And HaldeSpun! And Halde… what else can I put here…? HaldeDrinkMixers? HaldeCookies? LInda June 6, 2010 at 10:55 pm 11 years ago Reply Aren’t there enough sandpiper things in Florida, California, etc? I vote for the more unique and original!. (Like you!) Lorena June 8, 2010 at 9:11 am 11 years ago Reply You know, I looked into various different Sandpiper Studio domain names, and everything was taken. And doing a key word search on “Sandpiper Studio” brings up about 57 beach rental properties, a recording studio, and a fabric wallpaper company. The Internet is crushing my childhood dream of a ceramic studio called “Sandpiper Studio”… I’m 40 years too late. Sigh. On the other hand, HaldeCraft is wide open! mim June 7, 2010 at 7:20 pm 11 years ago Reply Also a cute play on “handicraft” tells the buyer more about what to expect. Lorena June 8, 2010 at 9:12 am 11 years ago Reply I hadn’t thought of that — true! Lorena June 8, 2010 at 9:13 am 11 years ago Reply OMFG, would y’all believe that with all the ceramics I’ve made and am making, I only have about three things right now that I could sell?! Everything else I’ve either given away as gifts, or don’t want to part with! PLANNING FAIL. Clearly I need to get cracking on pouring some molds – WITHOUT gifts for friends in mind. Anne June 8, 2010 at 9:32 pm 11 years ago Reply And be sure to post a link to the shop when it opens — I want some of those darling owls! Skipernicus June 13, 2010 at 11:12 pm 11 years ago Reply Harrods. Nope, taken… Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
