If you work full time trying to push along your new projects and mind what the old ones are doing there isn't much time to write about them. If we were better administrators maybe we'd have more time. The fact is that TALO is a pretty tight ship. For the collectors, this means that ultimately, the special editions get to the dealers at a price that is well below what they would be if the whole project was managed by the factories. That doesn't mean that the factories don't do a good job. They have a corporate overhead that has to be applied to everything. Usually they don't have specialists interested in making things a little different, instead there is a incentive to make things similar and simpler. We could not exist without the manufactures help. Some are more flexible than others. We really appreciate those that want to work with us. No need to name names. TALO believes our job is to add value. It's not enough to make things different. It is our hope that the TALO projects will be interesting , fun and a good store for the collectors money. We won't make something that we wouldn't own ourselves. Time will be the ultimate judge of how well we have done our job. All the people involved with TALO Distributors,our independent dealers, the administrators, office folks, salespeople, warehouse workers appreciate the support we have received over the past 50 years. ( nearly 20 years on this watch) , We will continue to try and earn your trust.
