The Puppetry Store on-line is now closed. All merchandise has been shipped to and will be available at Puppet Festival (r)Evolution in Swarthmore, PA.
Please attend the Festival, shop for extra bargains, and consign your items.
The Puppetry Store has served puppeteers for almost 50 years. At one time, it was practically the only resource we could turn to for puppetry books and other puppet supplies. But many of the items offered through the Puppetry Store are now available to us through on-line retailers like Amazon. The fact that we can shop on-line, coupled with a struggling economy, has resulted in the store’s not seeing the volume it needs to remain viable. It is time for the Puppeteers of America to reinvent, reimagine, and revive the Puppetry Store so that in the future it can serve the membership without its current deficits. Your feedback on what that can look like is welcome and important. The goal is to re-open by the 2015 National Festival.
The Store will operate in Swarthmore from August 5 until August 10, 2013, the last day of the National Festival, when its reinvention will begin.
