This prompted him to set up in business. His basement became his office and he now spends his spare time making knots of all sizes so the biggest and the tiniest of dogs can have a Hampton Heritage Company knot toy of their own.
Chuck sells his knots at festivals and events all over North Carolina. If you’re at an event in the area, look out for him! He’s proud of the North Carolina maritime heritage and it’s great that some of this tradition has now found another purpose!
