ALI hits the market!

Oct 08, 2019

            Syrena and Russ ventured out this month to conduct a market visit; a visit into stores to see our products and what's trending.  They visited Queensbury, as well as Saratoga, New York; browsing a plethora of stores. products were everywhere!  

From puzzles and cards to posters and calendars, They were extremely delighted to see so many different designs and products being utilized in big stores like Walmart and Target in addition to smaller chains like Ace Hardware and other local “mom and pop” shops.  This was a good time to conduct the market visit as it is right before Halloween and bigger stores are already stocking for Christmas. 

            Russ and Syrena identified a couple trends while out on their visit.  Across the board juvenile and simplistic designs are very popular.  Many paper products – greeting cards, gift bags, wrapping paper – supported this trend throughout a variety of seasonal and everyday subjects. 2020 Pantone colors were also seen all over the Wall Décor in big box stores.  Check out the link below to Pantone's website!

This was decidedly a very productive market visit.  Where in the world will Syrena and Russ go next?

Coming soon: art from the Stephen Huneck Gallery!

Sep 27, 2013

Stephen Huneck believed in the healing powers of dogs, nature, art and love. It was his wish that he could help others heal as well as heal himself, so he created these whimsical and charming images to inspire dog lovers of all ages. Along with his paintings, he created an amazing retreat for dogs and their owners called Dog Mountain. Dog Mountain is set on 150 acres on a private mountain top spot in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Dogs are not only welcome here, they are cherished! The dogs are free to run, play, swim and best of all… meet other dogs! This haven is covered with hiking trails and dog ponds. Wildflowers abound in the summer and snowshoeing is a favorite activity in the winter. 


There is also a Dog Chapel at Dog Mountain. Stephen believed that Grieving for a lost dog is one aspect of the Dog Chapel, but it is equally important to celebrate the joy of living and the bond between dogs and their owners. Stephen Huneck wanted people and dogs to have the most fun they possibly could.

After a life long battle with depression, the artist tragically took his own life on 1/7/10. The staff is determined to keep Dog Mountain going in his memory. The amazing team at Dog Mountain wanted to share Stephen’s feel good pieces with the world, so they signed with ALI.
