New Products - Martin Schwartz Puzzles and Posters!
Our objective is to source products from smaller artisan shops from just about anywhere other than Asia. Nearly 90% of the products offered through our extensive network of distributors here in the US originate out of Asia.
And that works out well for finding products that are "reasonably" priced to offer on our site and in our showroom. But there are also 1000s of other companies offering the same items, including the likes of Wayfair and Amazon...and as a small business, we simply cannot compete with those advertising budgets.
Soooo, we have been doing what we can to find those artists/small producers that we can promote on our online store. The items will cost a bit more than the mass-produced equivalents, but the goal is to get consumers to recognize that #ShopSmall, #ShopLocal helps America's small businesses survive. And we're helping out other small businesses in the process.
We received a shipment of Martin Schwartz puzzles and posters and they are fantastic quality. I posted a couple of time-lapse videos on our YouTube channel of us working on a couple of the puzzles...link here...and they are very challenging! A great family activity or something that will take you a few hours to complete.
Martin works out of his studio in Copenhagen, and he spends 3-4 months on each illustration - that is eventually made into a poster as well as a puzzle. All products are made in Denmark.
The posters are printed on a very high-quality paper, ready to be framed. And you will likely want to frame the completed puzzle.
