Dear Harvey & Sons,

I wanted to send you a note to thank you for making such a wonderful product, the Core Sound Crab Pot Trees. I saw my first crab pot tree last Christmas when visiting family in New Bern. On a visit to the NC Aquarium at PKS, I saw my first crab pot tree in their gift shop and fell in love. I purchased a tree from you during your after Christmas sale. I set it up in my living room, and it stayed up al year this year.

Decorating it has become a labor of love for me, and has taken most of 2012 to complete. I created hand-made sand dollar and star fish ornaments for it. I purchased some beautiful pale blue scallop shell ornaments for the Aquarium gift shop, and found some small blue crab ornaments at a store in Wrightsville Beach this summer. I also found a couple of gorgeous glass blue crab ornaments at the Neuse Sport Shop that grace the tree as well.

The base of the tree is decorated with shells collected over the years from all over the NC coast - from Corolla to Wrightsville. I also used sea glass that was found while beach combing and little knick-knacks like a sand colored sea horse, blue glass dolphins, shore birds, and iridescent glass sand dollars. The tree topper is a teal organza ribbon that represents the ocean waves. I have lived all my life in mountain foothills (Wilkes County), but I am a beach girl at heart. I ADORE my crab pot tree, and have had so many compliments on it! I now have a means to escape to the beach whenever I feel the need; all I have to do is turn my little tree on! I just wanted to share my experience and a photo with you, and to say "Thank You" for making such a wonderful product.

When I visited my parents in Core Creek during Thanksgiving, my mom was
telling me about the crab pot trees. I saw them when I went into
Beaufort at Ace hardware and just loved them! My parents sent me one
and I received it yesterday. I just love it! I put it up inside in
my living room. I haven't decided if I am going to decorate it or not.

Thank you for the prompt shipment of 3 trees. We received them Sat.

that we saw your article in the STATE MAGAZINE. The trees were as you
described and I am sure the will be enjoyed for years to come. It was
certainly a novel idea and Mrs. G. and I wish you much success. Happy
Holidays to you and all your employees as you have made our yard a lot

Greetings Mr. Harvey,
I just wanted you to know how very much I have enjoyed my 6ft. crab pot tree this Christmas. I saw an ad in the Jacksonville newspaper re: the trees and called S&H Garden Center in Swansboro to further inquire. I had them order me the one I wanted and got it in just a few days. My family has been absolutely delighted with it as it displays very beautifully on the front upper outside balcony of our home here in Jacksonville. What a great invention on your part. I then read about your business in Our State magazine and also in the article in the Jacksonville newspaper. I've told my family up near Greenvillle about the trees and we all look forward to acquiring a few more of them for upcoming seasons. Thanks so much for your practical and unique invention. Wishing you the best of luck,

P. P.

Hello to everyone and Happy New Year!

I just wanted to let all of you know how much we enjoyed our crab pot trees over the past several weeks. I gave one to my parents, which they put on the deck of their house just a couple miles down the road from our place, and we had one surrounded by several small lit trees in our front yard. They were beautiful! And every night when the lights came on, I thought of you.

I hope your year is off to a great start — happy and healthy and full of family and friends.

All the best,

V. J.

We received the tree on Friday and put it up on Saturday. We are very impressed with the quality and workmanship that went into the making of the tree. We have it inside rather than out and it looks beautiful. We know we will enjoy it this Christmas and for many more to come. Thank you!

My tree arrived on Friday, 12/3. It's absolutely beautiful and I appreciate your sending my order so quickly, given your excessive demand! I've already referred your website to several friends.

I also received my News Times and saw the front page article about the trees. Congratulations and best wishes for continued success on your special design!
