Lee,Duane,Loren and Max Pyro Joe just wanted to thank you guys on the very site I first met you guys.Lee and Duane each drove about 400 miles roundtrip,Loren close to 300 and Max across town but each one of you supported my fireworks business in a big way and Pyro says thanks much and I can't wait to hear about your shows because I know you're going to love them.

If any of the rest of you would like to check me out send me a friend request on Facebook @ Pyro Joe and you can go to my wall and see 40 videos of products I've handpicked for my fireworks business this season.

I was having a conversation with dad, who had just bought about $500 worth of fireworks for $200 from a friend. Just how much are fireworks marked up?

Actually, it was over 300 this time with the stupid detour we had to take because of the flooding.

I know of places around here that have a 400 to 600% mark-up.Mine are not even close to that because I'm trying to build a business on trust and I can't do that by ripping people off.It's the main reason I go to a show every year and use a Pyro Joe grading scale of 1-5 and if I don't give the firework a 3,4,or 5 I do not buy it no matter how cheap it is.I want my customers to know that I'm only going to cherry pick what I feel are great buys for the money thus resulting in a great show and the main reason my slogan is More Show-Less Dough.

A quick example,I was fortunate enough to get to put together a show for a community in Grove,Oklahoma and they sent a sheet showing what they'd gotten last year from a guy down there and supposedly he had given them 50% off.Anyhow he was showing his Coconut Grove Song at $37.50 reg price and made them think they were getting a great bargain at 1/2 that when my everyday price on the same firework is $18.99

You are welcome my friend and thank you for setting me up so well. I would much rather drive a ways to buy from someone I consider a friend. If you decide to blow some shit up after you close the stand for the year just let me know.... I'll come down for sure. Anyone in St. Joe or close, go see Pyro Joe. He will absolutely hook you up.. no bs.

that pretty much sums it up. Everything I got from Joe last year was good so it was worth the trip to avoid lame crap and it was a great reason to go shoot the shit and hang out for a bit.

Now I just have to wait until monday to set it all off. :(

hey Joe how did the concert go? Were you able to cover expenses? I went up Saturday and it seemed attendance was down a little from last year. Think the heat was the culprit?

And if you use your CC, make sure the young girl rings you up. You may get a substantial discount.

Ah that sucks. I could see blowing it off if it happened at Walmart but you don't do a small time guy that way.

And after the monkey incident last year you should know you need to strap all your shit to the ground this time of year.

I hate to lol at this because it sucks for joe but I must admit I did chuckle.

and while I chuckled at the first quote I have to agree with the second. some people don't care, they just love feeling like they won I guess. The thing that gets me is the fact the guy in question knows that Joe knows and still hasn't come to make it right.

I couldn't do it.

Kicking Wing, So you're gonna tell me that you don't have no black cats, no Roman Candles, or screaming mimis? Oh come on, man. You got no lady fingers, fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippity do das, or crap flappers? You're gonna stand there, ownin' a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistlin' bungholes, no spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker don'ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistlin' kitty chaser?
