Business News Update: Elmer's Flag and Banner
For centuries, weathervanes have served the function of showing wind direction, but much like analog clocks, technology has almost usurped the weathervane.
Yet weathervanes continue to be seen throughout America as architectural ornamentation and a reminder of bygone times. The beautiful and decorative weathervanes have never gone 'out of style'. Instead they grace the roofs of homes and businesses showcasing unique design styles and talented workmanship. A drive around Portland's neighborhoods highlights how special and unique weathervanes are.
Elmer's Flag and Banner has dozens of styles of weathervanes to choose from including patriotic symbols like the majestic eagle, a traditional farmhouse rooster, or the classic Victorian arrowhead. Weathervanes come in finishes like copper, brass and even hand-cast, rust-free, recycled aluminum. Moreover, decorative weathervanes are being used as statement pieces inside of homes, too.
For 57 years, Elmer's Flag and Banner has been providing quality products, honest service, and competitive prices to the Portland community. The 4,000-square-foot store carries thousands of flags, kites, windsocks, house banners and weathervanes. As Portland's largest flag store, Elmer's offers custom flag services and installation/service for commercial and residential flagpoles.
"We are more than just a flag store," Dave Anchel, President of Elmer's Flag said. "We are a part of the fabric of the Portland community. As a locally owned business, the money customers spend here stays in the area. And like most of our products, all of our weathervanes are American-made because we value quality and craftsmanship above all else."
