Last quarter we didn’t complete every offering we planned, but we did manage to introduce some new products that some of our customers liked. We had a lot of additions to our product line including Stillman and Birn Alpha, Beta and Zeta lines (more formats to be offered later), Winsor & Newton watercolor sets, Calina Madison brush sets, John Pike palettes and lighweight enamel boxes.
For next quarter, we’re planning to get more well-rounded synthetic brush sets as these are more affordable than natural haired brushes and gives painters more freedom to play around without the guilt of possibly ruining a very expensive Kolinsky brush. We would also try to get bigger sized version of Arches and Fabriano Artistico pads and blocks and add more Winsor and Newton sets to our collection.
Just a heads up though, we’re going to be out of the country from July 20 so we’ll have to temporarily close operations by then. We’ll resume operations on July 29. All pending special orders that haven’t arrived before that time will be handled after, and last orders will be entertained on July 18. All inquiries and orders after that will be accommodated when regular operations return.
