    just thought id share this and youse are always welcome to use this as a sales pitch to sell the premium priced vetrazzo
    This is what i decided to do when attempted to do my own concrete tops...i get alot of people saying Vetrazzo is too expensive...those Vodka sky bottles they use must really cost...anyway I created this as a gag to show those type of customers that really cant afford a high budget..it gets them laughing and they seem to pick the vetrazzo after I show them their choices

    Look at the lovely Mad dog 20/20...wine that never saw a grape

    lets not forget wild irish rose

    and oh..not the strawberry boones farm

    I also thru a couple of cigarette packs in the mix to and used up the broken glass i have in coffee cans for various inlays

    Then ya show them the Vetrazzo and its an easy salegood luck fella fabricators..below is Paladian gray vetrazzo

    That is some nice work. Be sure to save that sample as your first. It can go in the Smithsonian someday.

    I would pick the Vetrazzo myself also.

    Lipstick on a pig, can't disguse that its still a pig.. All those "green" products are overpriced. Guess being "Green" means the company makes more green in the form of $$$

    This is the case with everything though.  Remember when Corian sinks were over $1000?  Law of supply and demand.

    They had good reason to be over $1,000, failure rate was about 90%

    We had, maybe, a 5% failure rate on the Fountainhead KO2O sink. I would be surprised if we have had a total of 10 Corian failures since we have been in business. 

    The first Corian sink I sold was $1,450.  I could barely get the words out of my mouth.  We were paying over $1,100 for the sink.
