“We’re from Fall River Too!”

By ayr September 6, 2012

This is the first test of an idea I had last year. I thought it would be fun to offer the opportunity for customers to take our food to a picnic. We’re going to keep it up for another 1-2 weeks.

So I found a place in Fall River that made picnic blankets from 100% recycled plastic. That’s a pretty unusual thing. A funny story: when I gave them the art which says something like “made in Fall River, MA” they called me up and said “what a coincidence, we’re in Fall River too!” I’d written that because I knew they were in Fall River, and they were making the blankets, so it only seemed right. But I guess they are so used to people in their industry claiming credit for stuff they don’t make that they assumed I was only writing that because that’s where I was based. I thought it was really funny.

We put this map up, and have been selling picnic meals ($20 for 2 people), and blankets. It’s been really well received. We’re almost out of blankets and we already had to order more boxes.

Any good Clover picnic stories?
