WiredPRNews.com — Just like the mushrooms, filled with the joy of spring, are popping up after a storm, the small new businesses expand their opening buds here and there despite on the gloomy economy.
Mushroomland is an example of such spring phenomenon. The new small New York company showcases their amazing nature inspired children’s books, DVDs, dolls, pillows, blankets and framed appliqué pictures (Mushroomland Couch Companions, all exquisitely hand-made in New York) in independent stores and at the upcoming Columbus Craft Fair in New York City.
Mushroomland has been invited to the neighborhood Sister’s Uptown Bookstore and Cultural Center on Amsterdam Avenue and 156th Street to share its kind and whimsical stories about finding one’s place in the world while being different and appreciating life in all its forms. They are written in a classic fairytale style and address to the wide range of readers.
The books are illustrated with wonderful photography that seamlessly blends natural settings with elaborately handcrafted characters. Each picture reflects the natural scenery of Long Island, and this appeals to the customers of a few independent stores in Suffolk County – “Red Pony” in East Hampton, “Best Bargain Books” in Patchogue and Centereach among others. Mushroomland’s creator Natasha Guruleva takes kids on mushroom walks to explore the nature along the Pine Barrens Trail in Manorville.
Mushroomland products can also be purchased through the company website at www.mushroomland.net, and Amazon.com.
