John Bridges, the owner of JBvalu, retired from corporate Marketing management in 2019 after 32 years in industrial marketing, preceded by other positions such as Purchasing at multiple organizations. The love of kayaking and fishing inspired the introduction of the JBvalu brand fishing tackle/lures and accessories. Dealing in coal scrip tokens opened the door to learning about the rich history of coal mining and receiving stories of personal connections to the mines/scrip from our customers. If you want to learn more about coal scrip, here is a link to an article on our site: About Coal Scrip Tokens

JBvalu is located in Lexington, Kentucky in the heart of bluegrass country. On a decent weather day, you might find the owner kayak fishing Elkhorn Creek or other bluegrass area water treasures.
