Facebook Chatter

Ever amazed at the new opportunities the Internet awards us. I recently was introduced to Mark Cronin Ritter through buyoutsidethebox.com artist Ildikó Kalapács, or rather she introduced our site to him. Mark is from Utica, New York and he had this to say about buyoutsidethebox.com. Thanks..Mark, and thanks Ildikó.

"Really nice site! And a great concept. I've seen a few sites like this popping up recently. It's a great outlet for artists and much more fun for us shoppers. Of course supporting real artists and craftspeople is a terrific concept in itself.

"I just saw an ad for Wal Mart that touted them as the place to go to decorate your home or apartment. I have... See More a few pieces of fine art, not much, but it's so much more fun to say, "This is a piece created by [name of artist] that I found in [name of cool place]," than to say, "Yeh! That's from Wal Mart. Isn't it an excellent example of Chinese sweat shop creativity." What a laughable concept - Wal Mart as a source for fine art."--Mark Cronin Ritter
