Our supply of Sid Dickens tiles is back with more than we've ever had! If you aren't familiar with Sid Dickens, check out their website for the story on the creator and the tiles: http://www.siddickens.com/
Hand crafted of plaster, Sid Dickens tiles are a wonderful wall art option when you're looking for something other than framed art or canvases. Each piece has a short poem describing the tile so you can choose ones that have a special meaning to you, choose monograms or astrological signs or simply patterns and colors that appeal to you to create a unique showing in your home. You can start with a single tile or start your own collection. We have customers with over 50 tiles and many who just buy one a year and add to their collection.
We started carrying the tiles last year after a few requests from our customers and we couldn't keep them in stock. Unfortunately they experienced a labor shortage in Vancouver last year, where the tiles are produced, which led to delays in receiving our orders. We've had lists of customers to call when they got here who came right in to pick out their tiles.
We'll have another order coming in before the holidays and we are happy to special order any tiles for you that we don't have in stock. Make sure to get your order in soon though as the next available ship date as of this week is mid-November so we're guessing that orders placed towards the end of this month may not come in until January.
We can also order the tiles that are being retired this year for you. Feel free to call us at our Fairfax store for details on those tiles.
Also, if you already have a Sid Dickens collection, send us pictures of how you've arranged them in your home. We'd love to see them and share your ideas with our customers.
