Wow, I’d love to own a business like this!

Business & entrepreneurship

Chances are, you haven’t heard of Stave Puzzles. I hadn’t either, until I read about them in a recent issue of the Robb Report. Picture handcrafted, wooden jigsaw puzzles created with diabolical tricks in mind, and you’ve got exactly what Steve Richardson, owner and Chief Tormentor, has to offer.

I think a business like this would be great to have someday. Steve clearly loves and is good at what he does and has loads of fun. The business model is unique yet simple to understand, and the business itself can be operated from a place like beautiful but remote Vermont. I’m making an assumption here, but it’s presumably also very profitable. I’m pretty sure there are people out there (and not just puzzle junkies) who’d be willing to pay for a high-quality, artistic and entertaining product. Take a look at the selection he has to offer, and keep in mind that the company appeared in the Robb Report, a magazine about luxury goods.

Personally, I’ll have to hold off on buying any such puzzle until we have more space (living in a 850 sq. ft. house with two French bulldogs doesn’t bode well for the fate of any jigsaw puzzle), but Stave is definitely a place I’ll have to keep in mind for the future both as a shop and a source of inspiration for business ideas!

How about Festive Fibers? I envy those people. Beautiful stuff they make!!

Thanks for the Stave Puzzles link. I think I found an Xmas present… They have teaser puzzles for $125.00, much more in the price range…


That’s a cool biz too! Really interesting how they make those rugs. I took a hat making felting class way back when, and it really works!

I have a friend who made a woven rug once too, using “natural” (kinda sorta) dyes. Turns out lime jello is a great way to get chartreuse, who’d a thunk? Thanks Mapgirl!
