It Must Be the Benite!

This weekend, Herb Paulson, president of Daly's, celebrated two milestones;

1) 60 years at Daly's

2) His 80th birthday

All we can figure is that it must be the Daly's Benite running through his veins. For years he's been telling us what a great product it is... maybe he's right!

Recognize Anyone?

This set of cartoons was used in the late-80's/early-90's as part of our marketing.
The top row were staff from our Seattle store, the bottom row were from Bellevue. Interesitngly, a number of these folks are still involved in the industry (and a few of us are at Daly's!).

A Little Daly's Wood Finishes History

I received a piece of mail today from an anonymous customer. Apparently her parents have been customers of Daly's since the 50's - they even kept some of the literature from that time...
She sent us a couple old brochures and an instruction sheet. It's a great peek back into time.

Sadly, this information was sent to us totally anonymously, and I have no way to personally thank the customer.

I'd like to add that it's totally cool to see some old Daly's literature. And to think that someone saved this stuff for so long!
