At Market Night this week we encountered many stories of the Watkins Man visiting homes, ranches and farms. Many told, always with a smile and fond memories, stories of “thier” Watkins Man. We often wonder what qualities were either instilled or employed by Watkins in recruiting these select representatives as there is never a negative comment about them—how many could we say that of sales reps or distributors these days?
Wonderful stories of vanilla, cinnamon and pepper, along with lots of recipes using these products, salves and lotions and potions of the red and green can varieties, the stories were numerous. Some again thought the company had gone the way of Ipana toothpaste or other favorites of a bygone era and were so happy to see their old favorites alive and well in the market nights of America.
If you have a favorite “Watkins Man” story you’d like to share, so far in this century or last, please let us know–and have a great Natures’ Heritage week out there!
