Actual Customer Comments:

I have used Johnny Lew's Sports in the past and they have always been very reliable and great products that last for a long time.

I purchased 49er sports items for home and garden for my aunt and uncle who are in their 70s. They love them, AND they love that (those) items are American made! They refuse to buy made in China items, so GREAT JOB! My aunt wants to check out your site so sure hope you have more made in USA items. Oh, by the way, my uncle is a vet.

Good price, good quality products. I also like the fact Johnny is a military vet. Thats part of the reason I made my purchase with him.



"There was an error of product sent. Johnny sent correct item right away. I highly recommend this business and will definitely will buy again."
