When Rex Blisard built a camo-covered church pew to give to "Duck Dynasty," his favorite TV show, he had no idea his gift would result in a lengthy visit with "Duck Dynasty" family members and an appearance on national television.

I don't know. You'd think the money spent on this pew might be better if put to the needs of the poor and hungry. Like Christian values says it should.
But then, again the DD crew does need a place to sit out of the sun.

Really Big Bob? What makes you think that would be the smartest decision here? Did you not read the story?
Blisard is founder of Born Again Pews, a church furniture company in Leach, about 60 miles east of Tulsa on U.S. 412. He said he considers his business a ministry, providing pews at low cost for churches so they can use more of their resources to pursue their vision.
How many hungry kids do you think Rex may be already be feeding from the 1500 to 2000 Pews he is already building? Turns out that Willie had just mentioned the need of a new pew one hour earlier than recieving the surprise gift, how many new Pews do you think Duck Dynasty, a company already having a $500 Million Dollar a year Merchandising business can help Rex sell to feed more hungry kids?

How about Hunting Lodges, and places related? Just sounds like a very smart business decision from my point of view, just saying.

With the free advertising and endorsement from Duck Dynasty, I bet Rex Blisard is laughing all the way to the bank with new business, maybe, lol.
He started buying, refurbishing and selling pews around the country.
When that market dwindled, he began to manufacture pews.
"It took off from there," he said.
He now has 10 employees and makes about 1,500 to 2,000 oak pews a year. He has sold them in nearly every state and also the Cayman Islands, Greece and Japan.
Duck Dynasty is moving about $500 Million a year in Duck Merchandise. Who knows... maybe they could sell a few pews, lol.
