The second part of the team is the other artists who draw images, and the third part of the team is the design team that utilizes the images to create many of the sample scenes shown. This eCommerce site features the Makin’ A Scene collection, as well as stamps from other companies represented by Peddlers Den Also available is a vast and growing range of related papers, inks, accessories and tools. The site is equipped to serve stampers world wide!
The re-invention and new business model includes limited walk-in hours. We are open on days we are pressing rubber, and closed when we are on the road for expos and teaching tours. Being in a small, rural region, it is difficult for the majority of customers to visit frequently. Because of this, private classes and parties are also available by appointment, making the commute a social event.
Our business model is still evolving, and is subject to change as we evaluate not only the expectations of our customer base, but also the economics. If you and your friends are planning to visit, we recommend that you call ahead to be sure that you are not disappointed!
