“What really keeps me going is the feedback I get from my customers, people telling me it’s the first time they’ve slept in years. It’s a great feeling knowing you’ve been able to make a difference in someone’s life.”

After injuring her neck in 2002, Paulette Fellows saw a chiropractor who suggested she start sleeping on a rolled-up towel. While the towel relieved some of her neck pain initially, it was still uncomfortable and left Paulette seeking other solutions. She wanted a pillow that would provide neck support without sacrificing the comfort of a regular pillow.
“I tried all of them and finally woke my husband up one night and asked, ‘Why can’t they make one of these with more support?’ He said, ‘Well, make one!’ And the next day, that’s what I did,” Paulette said.

Paulette created a handcrafted pillow filled with soft feathers and down in the main portion, with a Memory Foam cushion in a compartment on one end for better neck support. Designed to benefit anyone who uses an ordinary pillow, especially those who struggle to sleep comfortably at night, Paulette’s PF Pillow has been endorsed by several chiropractors, not to mention thousands of happy sleepers.
Last year around this time, Glenn Beck talked about his experience with his own PF Pillow, describing it as the best pillow he’d ever had.
He said he’d been having a hard time sleeping until his wife, Tania, bought him a PF Pillow.
“Pillows suck. I can never get a pillow that I like and she got this pillow, and it has like this — I don’t know, I thought it was a defect in the pillow—and I was really loving this pillow, because it had this lump in one end. It has like this roll in one end of it, and it’s the best pillow I have ever had,” Glenn said.
And then he found out about Paulette.
“I did some homework. Here’s another entrepreneur. The woman who makes these — she makes them all by hand, here in America — she was selling them to chiropractors,” Glenn said.
He explained how the pillows hadn’t been selling very well, and Paulette was about to give up on the business, but decided to take one last chance selling them at a convention for chiropractors. It was there, Glenn said, that Paulette met a chiropractor who told her: “You can’t stop. I’ll buy everything you have and I’ll sell them. Please don’t stop. You’ve got to keep doing this.”
And so, Glenn explained, that gave Paulette enough money to continue to go on, and then she found The Marketplace by TheBlaze, where she’s been selling her pillows ever since.
“This is a woman who has just had a dream of helping people sleep and I’m telling you, it’s worked for me. It’s really a great pillow,” Glenn said.

When Paulette joined The Marketplace by TheBlaze in 2012, she was handcrafting each pillow herself, right out of her own home. Since then, her business has grown, becoming a wonderful success story for The Marketplace.
“The Marketplace by TheBlaze has nearly quadrupled my annual sales, allowing me to upgrade equipment, hire new workers, move my bulk storage off-site and contract with another local business to help with the assembly,” Paulette said. “The outpouring of gratitude from satisfied customers telling me they’ve had a great night’s sleep has been amazing!”
