We often get questions about our German Glitter colors and grits (grain) size.
No matter how good our pictures are, you just have to see our Glass Glitters to really understand the difference in quality from normal “craft” glitter and see the difference between Extra Fine and our Coarse grain size.
We are happy to announce that to help you try all our Glitters we have developed nice Starter Kits that gives you an ample amount of our Glitters in 70, 80, 90, and 100 Grit, plus you always get a free sample Glitter Medleys color blend glitter as well!
Each kit gives you a nice amount of Glitter (a full ounce total weight) This is way more than a big pinch, but less than an a standard jar of each color.It is enough to really see the quality, experience the colors and even create some beautiful projects.
Packaged up and ready to go at this link
Ok, I admit it. I like Taylor Swift. I think she is a great song writer, a great performer and (it seems to me) a really nice person.
So, I am extremely happy to announce the first ever Garden Fairy that looks like Taylor Swift.
Now this is not an official, sanctioned Taylor Swift Fairy, it is simply one of the cute little fairies we carry, that (to me) looks like Taylor when she was younger (and had wings)
We also have another teeny-tiny fairy that looks like a young Wilma Flintstone with Blonde hair, but that is a blog post for another day. If you want to see more pictures of these cute “celebrity” fairies (and some of our “bad boy” gnomes), just click here!
We are kind of known for our rich inventory of German Glass Glitter, Beads, Mica and other “glittery” goodies.
But we are also the leading industrial supplier of Gnomes and Gnome supplies in the North American Market.
Ok, this is probably not true, but it might be. We sell alot of Gnomes, Elf and Fairies, but I do not think the marketing research companies really track Gnome sales so we can’t be sure if we are the leaders or not…..
But, marketing research companies really should track this, I mean, who does not love Gnomes, Elfs and Fairies. I mean really? They are so darn cute!
However, we have discovered that you can’t stock just one. Nope. Gnomes do not play that way. They tell their cousins, who tell their brothers who then tell their sisters and all of sudden you have a full inventory of Fairies Gnomes and Elfs.
Once you get invaded with gnomes and fairies, they start making demands, for walkway pebbles, trees, landscaping, houses, bridges. So, now we had to add those items to our inventory as well.
So if you love Gnomes, the way we do, come see what we have and start having fun with Gnomes, Elfs and Fairies!
Elephants are kind of funny. How can something so big and narly, something that in real life can pick you and throw you, be so cute?
At Meyer Imports, we like elephants, as long as they are small, cute, not too threatening and can used in a 1001 craft projects.
So, if you need Elephants, click here, and enjoy the largest selection of miniature elephants around!
This is part two on the series about our warehouse finds that we are finally bringing out to market. You can read part one here. You can see all these vintage items in our store here.
Today, I want to present, Marolin who is one of the old German manufacturers that has items included in this section of our store.
Marolin is an old company (110 years in business) that creates the finest Paper mache figures around, from the same hand crafted and hand painted process since the early 1900s.
After WWII they expanded into a line of high quality plastic figures, with the same level of attention and hand painted detail. We we purchased thousands of these and sold many, many pieces over the years. But we still have many of these figures left and they are still new in mint condition! to see all the Marolin items in our store, please check this out!
Our company has over 50 years of history in the marketplace. However, we also have over 50 years of inventory!
We have finally started a systematic approach to getting everything out of the dusty boxes and cataloging everything we have in the shop.
One designer who stopped by called us “a Museum”, and she was kind of right.
There is a lot of history in them there boxes.
But now, you can see what has been lurking in the warehouse for all these years. Mostly German miniatures from a snow globe factory we purchased years ago, but also lots of trees, and plenty of charms and odd and ends.
Here is an easy way to find all these items, just search on our site for the label IV3 or just <click here>
This will bring all 100+ plus items, with more being added every week, to an easy to browse listing of products.
We believe we have about 250 different items from the back of the warehouse, some are limited, many we have thousands of, but all will be gone forever when we run out.
For anyone who is interested, here is a link to a post that talks about where many of these items came from, and why the factories that created them are no longer around.
