In April, 1963, Stanley Geller after working for four years bought from his father-in-law a small seasonal import business with sales of about $500,000 per year. That was the beginning. It was a little business of Easter baskets and toys. Stanley was Mr. Everything. He was the buyer, the designer, the marketer, and the salesman; His wife, Eve, typed the invoices. He bought by traveling to Japan in propeller driven planes, and sold by traveling the roads in the United States in a station wagon filled with samples, going from Minneapolis to Miami, Boston to Bentonville, New York to New Orleans and everywhere in between.
