Local family starts American wood flag making business
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A local business owner’s son has created his own business making American Flags.
According to James Staake, one day he asked his 6-year-old son Max what kind of business would he like to start? He replied “I want to make American Flags out of wood with you, and I want Mommy to put art on them.”
James is a carpenter and Max’s mom, Ginger, is an artist so they made their first flag and sold it to a family friend.
A little over a year later and the family business has sold over 400 flags. James and Ginger said they left their jobs of 10+ years and are working for their now 7- year-old son full time.
