Back to Basics
Back to Basics is no new concept especially not in a recession. There is something about a financial crisis that makes people want to simplify. I think that with everything that has happened in the world in the last 18 months there really is something so nice about keeping things simple. I also think that tough times bring families close together and this is where this next line comes into play...Dan has found us another incredible line for Spring 2010- The New York Puzzle Company. Now when you start to think about puzzles there may be a part of you that thinks about your grandparents (and that is the beauty in this) or things your mom brought out on a rainy day to try and keep you occupied I think for most people puzzles brought their family together. The New York Puzzle Company has bought the rights to use several vintage Conde Nast covers which will put you right back in that nostalgic mood. Great puzzles are very hard to find and with these retailing around $16.95 you have a great price for all markets. Wouldn't the Popular Mechanics make great Fathers Day gifts? (and you know how tough those are to find!) The House Beautiful covers are by far my favorite, and I think The New Yorker covers are so classic that they would be great to give to anyone! I think this line is going to bring big sales at market and I am very excited to see what they do next!
