Living in a down economy isn’t having much effect on Harvey Conner. He still has a job – the same one he’s had for 44 years.
And he has enough money to go out in search of some of the products he has manufactured since he was a teenager.
“The other day, over in Nicholasville, I found a piece I made in the early 1980s and only had to give $1.25 for it,” says the 63-year-old Madison County native.
His employer, Bybee Pottery, has been in business in the tiny community of Waco since 1809.
