Tom and I met Rolf Poeting, the owner of Rolf Glass and his Director of Design, Paula Sansone-Johnson, at the first gift show we attended after moving to San Francisco in the summer of 2010. We immediately fell in love with their unique design sense, and their willingness to help a small fledgling business like mine. (Especially that part!)
Since then, we have sold and shipped countless boxes (thousands really, especially at the holidays!) of gorgeous American made coastal glassware all over the United States. Etched barware and wine glasses with designs of: Schools of Fish, Seashells, Seahorse, Sea Turtles, Herons, Compass Rose, Sailboats, Palm Trees, and of course our fair share of Pirates!
Whenever we get the chance, we make seeing Rolf and Paula a priority at the markets we attend. Had such a great time visiting with them in their new showroom in Vegas at the Winter Market this past week!
The best part? We get to see all of the new designs up close and personal....
Enjoy my few Iphone shots in their showroom!
Rolf and Paula will continue to innovate and we hope to continue our wonderful partnership with them!
I am having a tough time deciding between the Moby Whales ....
and these mysterious Octopus!
