Crate Orders On the rise!


Crate orders and online sales are increasing and the word is getting out there on our crates. In September Wildlife unlimited gave out 500 Mini Crates with four Yooper Firestarters. It was a wonderful turnout and a good time was had by all!  The holidays are approaching and customers are ordering personalized crates for their business or for holiday gifts.

Lakestate on Discovering

Discovering did a half our segment on the Rustic Room in October of 2012. Since the show aired we have had an increase in sales both internet and in the store. We are getting ready for the hunting season  and stocking up on our Yooper Firestarter inventory.

Website and Rustic Room Online Store 

  • This year Lakestate has experienced several positive changes within the organization. In May of 2012 the Rustic Room online store was launched!! Customers can now go online and purchase Yooper Firestarters and our furniture. Customers can shop on our site using Pay Pal and or Mastercard or Visa. The online store is pivotal for our sucess in reaching customers and expanding our market. In addition to our online store we have a new website design with pages now linking to social media outlets such as Twitter and Face Book.
