Hi! I'm Blake Cabot, owner of FlagsRUs. Thank you for visiting! I am a transplant to the Northeast from Austin, Texas about 17 years ago. My wife and I and our two boys split time between New York City and Salisbury, Connecticut. I love to row and play tennis badly. We have a labradoodle named Frasquita who is terrific at chasing deer but not chipmunks, two rabbits (whom Frasquita doesn’t like), and one fish named Francis 2. (There was a Francis 1.) I bought my first website (Clownantics.com) in July, 2009 and have been growing it thanks to you all ever since (ex. facepaint.com). Special shout out to Pamela who started me in this business and stopped me from doing crazy stuff (baby changing stations? really?). We have a great team that has built this business from all over the world. They are all terrific and among the best in their fields. I promise you that I’m more lucky than good. Now we are building our OWN WAREHOUSE in Newburgh, NY (where I will have an awesome treadmill desk) and getting it all ready for FlagsRUs. I am really excited and honored to be taking over Mary’s business. She is in outstanding business person and a great person in general. Big shoes to fill.
Hi! I'm Mary Kueny, founder of FlagsRUs. Thank you for visiting! My son, Michael, and I move to Marysville from Kansas City over 20 years ago. If you've never visited northeast Kansas, come on over! It's beautiful here! When I'm not at work, I love to travel. I ride motorcycles in the summer. We have two dogs Fancy, the Sheltie and Tedi, the Yorkie. They both come to work once in a while and they think they're part of our team! Speaking of teams, I have to tell you that I'm lucky to have a great team. Thanks guys! When I am at work, I help out wherever it's needed. So you might find me answering the phone, processing orders, shipping orders, working in the warehouse or the storefront.
Hi, I am Sammy Ralph. I have been with FlagsRUs, when I wasn't attending school, since 2004. At FlagsRUs, I purchase products from our suppliers, do some web site maintenance and help out where ever I am needed. I grew up on a farm near Marysville and have an older sister and younger brother. I graduated from Kansas State University in 2010 with a degree in Secondary Education, emphasis in English. My husband, Will, and I were married in April 2011. We live out in the country with our German Shorthair Ace and our black cat Storm. When I am not at work I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and going fishing with my husband. We usually don't catch much, but we have a lot of fun!
Hi! I’m Pamela, Content Development Manager for the Clown Antics family. My mom started Clown Antics as a mail order company in the late 80’s, which laid the foundations for its transition to the internet where it has been conducting business and growing ever since.
In January of 2000, I moved to Michigan and started working for Clown Antics - I started picking and packing orders, then evolved to customer service and later purchasing as we grew. I’ve been delighted to work with Blake since my mom retired in 2009. The experience of growing and expanding one family business makes me very excited that we will be able to achieve similar growth with FlagsRUs.
Now I live in Florida with my hubby and 3 cats (plus assorted lizards, frogs, and other Florida wildlife). We enjoy a year round outdoor lifestyle including cycling, walking, and battling the ever present Florida vines.
I look forward to the opportunity to help you bring a little colour and flair to your outdoor decor as you enjoy spending time with your friends and family, with FlagsRUs - the newest addition to the Clown Antics Family.
Hi, I am Nicole. I am a Customer Service Manager for the Clownantics family.
I’ve spent most of my life in the deserts of Las Vegas, NV. I moved to the beautiful historic Hudson Valley in upstate New York in 1995. I live with my three very cool children we have one dog, one cat and two frogs. We enjoy hiking the Adirondack Mountains and this year my daughter has told me we are going to become 29er’s (The 29er Challenge allows hikers to see all regions of the Adirondack State Park from summits with breathtaking views.)
I joined the Clownantics family in 2014, and love every aspect of my job. I am looking forward to assisting you with all of your FlagsRUs needs and to make your shopping experience as enjoyable as possible.
Hi Everyone!! My name is Amanda, I am the Purchasing Manager for the ClownAntics family including FlagsRUs. I started off as a customer service representative with the company and moved on to purchasing after couple of years. I was born and raised in New York’s Hudson Valley. I have a three year old daughter who I adore and love to spend time with. I am her biggest fan in her new found love of dance. When I’m not working, I love nothing more than spending my time with family and friends, eating a delicious meal and stirring up a good conversation. I’m excited to be a part of the ClownAntics team and delighted to assist you with all of your FlagsRUs needs.
Hi, my name is Kevin. I started working at FlagsRUs in the fall of 2014.
I have a son, Austin, and a loving wife, Rebekah. I enjoy spending time with my family and our 2 rescue dogs, Kobalt and Jubilee.
Kobalt is a crazy lab/husky mix who enoys chasing and catching groundhogs. Jubilee, a beautiful German Shepard, is a special needs puppy we recently rescued. She loves her new brother and family.
