Frequently Asked Questions
Everything is designed in-house in our Brooklyn studio.
Manufacturing takes place in China.
We know, we know -- you don't like to buy things made in China. We're working on it; our goal is to move production to the U.S. as soon as we can afford it. SO BUY MORE SNOW GLOBES.
The interior is made from resin, which is hand-painted.
The glass globe is filled with purified water, glycerin, and a tiny but of ethylene glycol (anti-freeze) to help keep it from freezing. BUT they are for indoor use only and should not be kept below freezing temperatures.
The snow is made from unicorn dandruff.
Any glass cleaner will do the trick. Just be careful handling it, butterfingers.
No. Would you give a child a Faberge egg?
These are not toys.
What an odd question; why would you do that??
Nor can you keep it outside in freezing temperatures.
It 👏 Will 👏 Break 👏
No. The water inside is over the maximum allowed limit for carry ons.
You would have to put in your checked luggage, in its original box if possible, but we are not responsible for breakage if you do this.

Yes. But because of the work and manufacturing involved, we have a minimum order of 300 pieces per design.
Please contact us for more information.
Do not place the globe in direct sunlight. This can, over time, discolor the liquid inside.
It could also cause a fire created by the magnification effect through the globe.
While this may sound like a cool party trick, it would destroy your globe, and probably your house. And cat.
