I think Penguin should design and manufacture/sell their own high quality juggling equiptment. With penguin's prices and quality, if they were to sell some nice juggling equiptment such as clubs nicer than the cheap beginner stuff, knives, rings, etc...it would be great for everyone overall. It could bring a lot more customers to the site, especially if they were to advertise as a juggling retailer. Not to mention the new interests it could bring to the forums.

Penguin is already a retailer. It seems what you're asking is for Penguin to be a manufacturer. Big difference.

With Dube, Renegade and other quality vendors out there, I think Penguin would have a hard time competing. Unless it's contracted out, the fabrication equipment costs alone would be astronomical just to get started.

I wouldn't mind though if Penguin were to resell name brand juggling stuff. Maybe they do, I haven't looked. The last juggling things I bought came direct from the manufacturer.

True, true.
Maybe if they resold some higher quality products, rather than all beginner stuff.

Do you think it would be worth their while? Is there a market for it?

Well, I don't think currently they would have enough of a market for it, but if they were to just add juggling to their ads, and put some of the pruducts on the front page, they would very likely attract more customers not necessarily interested as much in magic, but in juggling.
