Happy Holidays to all!

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

We want to wish our entire Enrico community a very happy holiday season! From our retailers, to our sales force, to our suppliers here and abroad, and all the people behind the scenes who are connected to Enrico, we recognize how important every person is to making our company what it is today. We hope each and every one of you will enjoy some time with friends and family during the holiday season, maybe sit down to a hearty repast (hopefully served on Enrico serving pieces), and put up your feet to relax. As the year winds down we are contemplating the wonderful challenge that was 2011 and the opportunities that will come in 2012, and we’re thankful to have you all as a part of our story.

Check out our Winter Show schedule and Show Specials here – shows start January 11th with the International Gift & Home Furnishings Fair in Atlanta!

Cheers, from The Enrico Team

When sellers just don’t tell the truth…

Monday, December 19th, 2011

What a shame to find out that recently a pop-up store has appeared in one of Seattle’s great neighborhoods selling items similar to our RootWorks collection. It’s not that we mind an enterprising entrepreneur trying to sell products like ours, it’s that they are outright lying about the source of the products, the finishes used, the method of production, even the species of tree they come from. It’s astonishing that someone feels it is reasonable to tell consumers bald-faced lies in order to sell something…maybe more astonishing is that they think they will get away with it in this world of high speed communication. So if you are wandering Ballard and someone with a number of cool root items tells you they are carved by artisans in Oregon, that they come from rejected Noble Fir Christmas tree stumps, that their roots grow together naturally into handles, and that the finish is two coats of water-based lacquer + mineral oil, you will know it’s simply not true.
