Sales Patter: Interestingly enough, the founder originally intended it to be an art store, but when he was ordering inventory for the first location, he decided he needed a new couch to work from (he wasn’t fond of desks). So he attempted to order one at the same time as the quills, but made a mistake on the order form and received 3,000 sofas. It took decades for him to admit that his successful business started as a mistake and wasn’t just a brilliant yet unorthodox business strategy.
