Hey Everybody,
In case you haven't noticed that red badge on the front of your new 2019 wall calendar, next year marks the 25th Anniversary of StoryPeople…
Who knew all that was going to happen when Brian pulled that loose board off thefence in his backyard & painted up the original StoryPerson back in the early90's? Just a couple thousand hand-stamped stories of love & laughter & whimsy & desire, not to mention a few books & prints & cards along the way. We've loved sharing this wild ride with you, & now the whole 25-year thing is starting to make us think about the next 25 years.
One thing we know is that we can be better. For each other, for our children, for the dogs & the trees & the billowing clouds floating overhead. For the whole planet. Better creatively & better environmentally. So there are a couple things we want to change…
First, the sculptures are going to evolve. We've been playing with some new ideas, like interchangeable stories & different wood finishes. It's too early to tell where this play is headed, but we've decided one thing: after September 21st, theStoryPeople sculptures are going to quietly slip away for a little while. Think of it as spinning a cocoon & emerging again in 2019 as a new kind of StoryPerson, ready to take flight…

To be clear, this ISN'T the end of sculptures. It's the BEGINNING of the metamorphosis of the sculptures. But this will be your last chance to grab one in Brian's beloved style from the first 25 years of StoryPeople. (Don't say we didn't tell you…;-))

Second, the double frames will also be disappearing for a stretch. We know many of you love them, but we want to make a few eco-friendly adjustments & come out with a new style in 2019. That's something that's become vitally important to us, making sure that the things we make for you are sustainably sourced & good for everybody. The current batch of double frames will be available until they run out (& just a guesstimate, but it looks like it’ll be the end of September on these, too…)

So that's the scoop. Just a couple more weeks for the traditional sculptures & double frames. If you'll want either of these items for gifts during the holiday season, it's like this: Get. Them. Now.
We look forward to seeing you soon over at storypeople.com
with love, Ben
The Crew at StoryPeople
P.S. Speaking of that red anniversary badge, it appears on the front of the new2019 wall calendar, which is done. Available. Ready to ship. & in case you don't know, Brian did a second kind of calendar for next year: a frameable print calendar. Yep. After spending a year in Maine, he learned that this is a thing in New England & when he brought it up we all couldn't believe how perfect it was. 12 gorgeous brand-new prints with a subtle calendar on each one.
