New Contest: Win free puppets
From 1994 until 2009, I owned an operated a puppet manufacturing business known as Puppet Partners Inc. In 2009 I felt that I had taken my business as far as I could with my limited abilities in business. My true abilities, and passion lied with the creative aspect of the business--designing and sewing the puppets as well as creating the educational curriculums that accompanied some of the puppets. So when the opportunity came to sell my business to Get Ready Kids in New Jersey (one of my competitors), I jumped on the opportunity. I had begun writing YA/MG novels and this would give me the opportunity to follow another one of my passions: writing.
Get Ready Kids did not purchase my full line. (I had over 66 sku's). So I kept my small retail puppet store so that I could continue to sell out some of the lines I retained until they are gone. Petite Performes is one of those lines. It is a darling line, but was too expensive to manufacture for this new company to warrant keeping. I have quit a few in stock, so I am offering 3 sets as part of this give away.
