Throughout March, Puzzlebox discussed a new retailer relationship, and received updates about recent partnerships.
Since November, Puzzlebox products have been selling on novica.com under the name “Thai-Burma Bordercrafts.” Novica normally sells on consigment, but placed an initial order for our products to jump-start the relationship. In March, we were informed that many of those original items have already sold out, and we’ve started selling consignment pieces through the site. We’re pleased to know that our presence on Novica is growing!
Last June, the staff artists had the opportunity to visit many galleries and creative shops in Chiang Mai, to increase their exposure to the art world. One of these shops, Matoom Art Space, expressed interest in carrying our work. In January a delivery to Matoom was finally made, and in March we were given news about our steadily-increasing business. Now Matoom is requesting our functional ceramics in additional to the necklaces and keychains–we hope we can keep up!
