CarpentreeLogoResized-webA video testimonial made by Brenda Harrison, owner of Lighthouse Christian Store in Bedford, Indiana, has paid off in $500 of free Carpentree product. Carpentree sponsored the drawing at the June International Christian Retail Show in Atlanta.

To qualify, stores needed to place an order at the show and be willing to record a testimonial for the company. The winning store had the option to select from among items in Carpentree’s entire line of framed art décor and gifts.

Sherry Morris, marketing manager, notified the retailer of her prize. Harrison reacted by saying: “No way! Thank you, Jesus! You guys have the best stuff!"

Harrison recorded her testimonial at ICRS and said she was “so happy to share” her love for Carpentree products.

“They keep coming up with creative new things, and they show us creative ways to display them. ... To have beautiful quality products like this always excites me,” she said.

In 1995, Harrison and her husband, Keith, committed their lives to the Lord and believed God was leading them to open a Christian bookstore. They have served their community for almost 19 years.   The Harrisons have been customers of Carpentree since 2001.

“We are pleased to be able to bless long-time customers like the Harrisons with products from Carpentree,” said Jordan Hobson, national sales director. “We appreciate all our loyal customers and feel that the Harrisons have given voice to many of those who have been with us all these years.

“We had a great introduction of new Christian gift boutique items at ICRS in Atlanta this year,” Hobson added. “Tabletop glassware, scarves, free-trade purses and bags and ceramic dishes mix well with the décor items that our brand is known for.”
