1987/88 Catalog Cover   1987/88 Woodworking Customer Letter
 
Print Catalog Cover
 
Dear Customer,

For some of you, this will be the 10th autumn that you have received a Lee Valley catalogue. Anyone who remembers all of the cover photographs on the back of this catalogue has been a customer since our first year in the tool business, 1978/79.

Since that first mail order was sent in 1978, we have grown from 5 employees to 75 employees. The catalogue has changed so much over the years that there is not a single photograph in this catalogue carried through from '78. Prices have also changed but not all the price changes have been horrendous. A picture frame clamp cost $22.75 then (without the speed nuts!). It costs $24.75 today. Unfortunately, most other price changes have been more painful.

Without trying to give you a swelled head, one thing that has changed very little is the nature of our customers. Woodworkers seem to come from the most rational, understanding, cheerful and honest elements of society. It has been a pleasure to do business with you over the years.

Yours Sincerely,

Leonard G. Lee
President
