Talking Shop…Steve Kudron of Quacker GiftsBy SkyHiDailyNews.com

Grand Lake, CO – Steve Kudron, co-owner with Jennifer Brown, Quacker Gift Shop, 1034 Grand Ave, Grand Lake. 970-798-8014

How long have you been in business? We have been in Grand Lake for two years. Quacker Gift Shop has operated since 2008.

How did you get started in this business? Jennifer began making soaps as a hobby many years ago. She would work them up in our kitchen and we would sell them at craft shows. To have something for kids, we started putting a little rubber duckie into the soaps. One day, a man came up to us and asked for the duck – no soap. Jennifer took the duck out of the soap and sold it. The next show we went to, we brought a shoebox-full of ducks. The ducks sold out before the soap did. We started off at festivals and began to sell tens of thousands of cute duckies. When the demand got bigger than our tents at the shows, we opened a store. After three different Colorado towns, we have found the perfect home for Quacker Gift Shop in Grand Lake.
