The day he first told me he was starting to disappear I didn't believe him & so he stopped & held his hand up to the sun & it was like thin paper in the light & finally I said you seem very calm for a man who is disappearing & he said it was a relief after all those years of trying to keep the pieces of his life in one place. Later on, I went to see him again & as I was leaving, he put a package in my hand. This is the last piece of my life, he said, take good care of it & then he smiled & was gone & the room filled with the sound of the wind & when I opened the package there was nothing there & I thought there must be some mistake or maybe I dropped it & I got down on my hands & knees & looked until the light began to fade & then slowly I felt the pieces of my life fall away gently & suddenly I understood what he meant & I lay there for a long time crying & laughing at the same time.

We are a family-run art and gift company located in the upper rightmost corner of Iowa in a town called Decorah, in an area known as the driftless region, in a crater left by a 470 million-year-old meteorite.
You would think that living in a valley surrounded by alien shale would have an effect on people, and you might be right, but to our knowledge there have been no studies to determine the truth of the matter. As far as we can tell, people around here seem normal enough, but then again, once you go beneath the surface of just about anything, things can get weird fast.
Doing our best to bottle a little of our own weirdness, we spend our days making art and thinking about things like whether it is worth the extra effort to toast the bread before you make a sandwich, or the true meaning of flowers, or what the world would be like if everyone tried a bit harder to be nice to each other.
In a fortunate twist of fate, we are lucky enough to get to make pleasant things for you to share with the people in your life, to tell them how much they mean to you, and that is something we are really quite happy about. So thank you, from all of us here at StoryPeople, for helping us to spread a bit of gentleness throughout this wild world, one friendly story at a time.
You can reference our FAQ page (above) or feel free to email us at email@example.com or call 1.866.564.4552 during standard business hours (M-F, 9am-4pm CST), and we will respond as soon as we can.
