Buy it for Life.
Our Ethics: not “For Sale.”
I’ve been a longtime defender of “Patagucci” and the like—those companies that build their products to last. Products that are more “tools” than “products.” Buy once, spend more, know where who’s made said product and how they’ve been rewarded for the making of it. And, in the end, and all along the way, we’ll treasure and respect and enjoy our tools and products more, for longer—and, in the end, we’ll save money.
“Good equipment ain’t cheap, and cheap equipment ain’t good.”
“The most expensive suit is the one you only wear once.”
“Pay lots, cry once. Pay little, cry twice.”
“It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money … that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the things it was bought to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot … it cannot be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.” ~ John Ruskin
