    I'm wondering where the metal hook sets are available to purchase. Do you know? I often see great looking ties for a song, but I don't wear them very often. A straw hat in the summertime, however!
    I ran across this site while looking for some pugs.....http://www.caliqo.com/findex.html?ht...and_hooks.html

    Hooks seem to be kind of over priced.....but, I suppose if you can't find them, the price is ok.....

    Just my 2 cents.....I think their Pugs are 3-5 dollars high also.

    Thanks, Mystic. Prices seem okay to me, considering.

    I worked in a hardware store while in college, and whenever people would complain about having to pay X # of cents for some screw or nut or whatever, I politely asked them if they could manufacture them at home for less. That generally got a chuckle.

    Maybe I could fashion these pug hooks, but I'd rather not.

    It's all about marketing.....

    the price difference for a 1/4" brass screw:

    for the home.....50 cents

    for the mobile home......75 cents

    for your boat.....$ 1.25

    for your yacht.....$ 2.00

    for your airplane....$ 5.00

    I really like the Knox twenty. The felt on it appears of high quality.

    Agreed.

    Johnny, nice selection there. A few more and you could have one for each day of the week.
