Welllll...after spending the last couple of days online and speaking with people from literally all over the world, I won't be able to offer the magnet pieces until I have a permanent home somewhere...which isn't in my near future plans, but I will be spending a couple of months in one area this summer and will try and offer the magnets then. The company I had been using, will no longer ship General Delivery to the Post Office, my only option without a physical address.
If it wasn't a shipping issue, it was price was too high, they couldn't do the die cut size/shape, or the material wouldn't match up with what has already been created. No one is able to meet the requirements I need to offer the magnet pieces, and I'm so, so bummed I knew some parts of van life could end up being logistically difficult, and this had been working just fine, but, alas things change and I just have to be able to adapt and find different ways of doing business while living on the road.
Now the question is...should I sell the originals after all? I had thought it would be so cool to keep them all together and create a massive puzzle that was all in one place. But, the flip side is there could be the original pieces collected all around the world to share in our interconnectedness with all of us, and our planet. We could all share in being connected through puzzle art And logistically, at some point I'm going to run out of room to keep all the originals in my tiny home, haha! So, it just makes the most sense to offer the originals, they will be listed soon! Be sure to sign up for the MADART Newsletter to get notified of the puzzle pieces when first released and at 50% off! - Sign up HERE.
With selling the originals I would still have an online image constantly updated with all the pieces together, so we could still see it grow into the massive puzzle it is meant to be...just all the pieces will be in different homes.
I do still have some of the puzzle magnet pieces available, but in very limited quantities if you want to snatch them up! And will resume selling them this summer for a couple of months, and of course when I have a permanent residence again, in a few years or so Unless I can find a supplier to work with, I will keep looking!
