That's a laugh for the Novotny brothers, whose business has ballooned along with the fad of ballooning. John Novotny, 49, hand-weaves two balloon gondolas a week. In the last few years, he has made 150 of them for the balloon business of Raven Industries in Sioux Falls, S.D. He makes just one size of the wicker baskets - 50 inches long, 38 inches wide and 45 inches deep. The old reed-weaving business was passed onto John, his twin brother Joe, and younger brother Lou, by their father, who started it in a West Side shop in 1920. In those days, reed, or wicker, baby carriages, chairs and other furniture, and baby bassinets were "in." The Novotnys said there still is a big demand for bassinets of all sizes. The brothers weave from 50 to 65 of them a week and say they have a year's backlog of orders. "We wholesale them for $14 to $35. By the time the dealers doll them up in ribbon and satin, they retail for $150 to $165," said John Novotny. Like about everything else, the cost has spiraled for reeds and rattan - long, slender, tough stems from climhing palms. "We buy them in bales that weigh 133 pounds each," Novotny said. "The cost was getting so out of hand from American importers that we now deal directly with a source in Singapore. The bales arrive by boat in Seattle and are trucked to us after passing through Customs. It usually takes from three to eight months to get an order." He said that in the last year the cost of bales in the United States rose from $88 to $134 each. BLACK ANGUS Vl'r 1402 No. Dixie Hwy., Lake Worth 585-9344 I am X 1 ORAL ROBERTS December 17, 7:00 P.M.
