"If a man does his best, what else is there?" ~ General George S. Patton
I think that quote fits about any situation. And Eddie Heath sure does his best!
I have made a few photo posts of Eddie Heath's Crab Pots (it is such a colorful place), but I have never posted a photo of Eddie in his office.
Eddie Heath has been in the crab pot business for many years. His iconic crab pot business is always hopping. Even in the dead of winter, Eddie and his crew can be found working at all hours. A crabber's life is dictated by the DNR and the weather; a crab pot maker's life is dictated by his sales. And one doesn't get to stay in business for as long as Eddie has without being loyal to both his customers and his suppliers.
Eddie treats his customers like family. No matter how busy he is, he always has time to sit and talk; so much, that his office is often full of people standing and chatting about all things "watermen." Eddie also gives back to the community, making him one of the few people in Crisfield who has earned my respect.
Eddie is a little old-fashion when it comes to office tools saying, "I like to keep it simple. I use a pencil and a telephone."
Eddie helps a customer from Virginia.
And you can get a crab pot in any color! I
