TetonMarketing.com is now Jacksonholetim.com
Teton Marketing was a family owned and operated business located in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Teton Marketing specialized in providing specialty lumber and components primarily to the Native American Flute building community in the beginning but it quickly grew beyond that and specialty lumber has been added for other craft builders such as Turkey Call Makers, Fishing Lures, Model Makers, Lather Turners and more. In May of 2014 this family owned business was engaged in a move that took more than six plus months to complete. During this time our family made the decision to temporarily shutter the business until we were able to complete the move, clear our heads, and make some needed changes. In addition to moving we also had to relocate the business which in Wyoming is not an easy task. Today we are on 5 acres that backs to National Forest and our front yard is the Snake River. The good news is the move and other family tasks are behind us and we are once again shipping flute blank and specialty hobby lumber orders.
Award Winning Artist Timothy Jennings Continues to Serve Flute Makers
Artist Timothy Jennings originally had planned to stick with the genesis for his motivation for these changes which was to get back to the flute. What started as a desire to help other novice flute builders engage in the art of flute making has grown into more than just selling parts for Native American Flute craftsman. For the past two years Tim has been working on several Commission Projects that have sought him out as of this writing he continues to be busy with new projects.
Over the past year there have been several individuals who have tried to step in and fill the void our family had left in May of 2014. Tim says he was alright with that and he has always felt that there needed to be more people willing to share what they know about crafting the flute. Tim’s goal was to do exactly what he said he set out to do 2 years ago which was to get back to hand crafting Native American Styled flutes and helping others. Our family is once again crafting flute blanks and they are now available for purchase. In addition you will be able to find appropriate router bits for DIY peeps, hand cut leather from selected Bison and Elk Hides as well as some fetish blanks. Tim has added the availability of pre-glued blanks (as time permits) that play a fundamental note that are ready to shape, tune and finish in order to help those who have limited time.
Our family continues to seek a place in a local gallery and our hopes are that by this next summer people who visit Jackson Hole will be able to view his art. In the meantime you can find Tim at his new website/blog at www.jacksonholetim.com and if you would like to reach out to Tim send a message to email@example.com. At JacksonHoleTim you are able to view new flutes as they are finished, flute making supplies, hobby lumber and also find some of his photography that show cases the beautiful part of the world he lives.
