>But the name ''Hetchins'' as like Masi with their small shops still trying to make it a go as they are will not survive much longer without customers!!...< __________________________________________ if i understand today's threads, the current 'official' hetchins is produced in numbers of 10-20 per annum and it has a patron as an owner.

i don't think the same laws of business relate to this situation as would relate to a concern producing real numbers. these guys live outside 'the box'. i see no need to worry about the future, fiscal or otherwise, of david miller's 'hetchins'. e-RICHIE in Chester
