I was approached by a worldwide puzzle company, asking to use this photo (tulip display at Botanica, Wichita's botanical gardens) as a jigsaw puzzle. It's part of a product release exclusive to Target. The puzzle is now being sold in Target stores nationwide. How exciting for me!!
THE BAD NEWS:
The puzzle is almost impossible for anyone to find. It is distributed to Target stores in an assortment of new puzzles. It appears there was one box of the assortment sent to each store in the nation, thus, one of my tulip puzzles per store. Target is not selling these online and stores will probably not restock since every 3 months a completely new assortment will be introduced. So, if you must have one, and I know you must, jump in your car and start searching Target stores in your area. There are probably still some out there. Don't bother looking in the Wichita area, I happen to know the 4 puzzles from the 4 area stores sold the day they went on the shelf.
Thane, I found your puzzle today at Target in east Wichita! It was the only one with your beautiful tulip picture from the Botanica. I had heard about this and was surprised to run across it today. Congratulations!
Thane, I enjoyed hearing your story about the puzzle last week. I can see now why the company wanted to use it. Great photo!
Way to go Thane! Could this be the start of something BIG?
Awesome, TR! I've got to run out to my local Target tomorrow and snatch one! Beautiful picture.
That is beyond exciting! Besides being a compliment, I think it's pretty cool! Way to go!
