Rank #6: Dave from Big Laces.com shares in sites into his website, eBay and amazon business. Don’t try doing everything yourself, use experts because you will be amazed at how much time someone else can actually save you and therefore money! Dave of Big Laces

Podcast cover
Read more

Big Laces was started by Cheryl and Dave Clayton as “The Lace Place” back in 2006, primarily as an eBay venture to earn extra cash. Without any initial business plan and very little fancy marketing, the company has grown significantly but still remains family owned and run. 

“We’re not a big corporate machine and believe in good, honest customer service and bringing a smile to people’s faces. Those who buy from us almost always return, and we hope this is due to the fact that we prioritise customer satisfaction above all else.

In our time as retailers we’ve seen quite a few similar looking companies (some even borrowed all our photos without asking!) come and go and can only think this is due to the fact that you won’t make millions selling shoelaces! We love what we do and we thank all our customers for their continued support.”

What do they offer?

On top of our wide range their Fat, Flat, Round and Super Fat Laces they offer a range of Retro Sweatband Sets and Beanies and a 5 Star Customer Service experience!
