New Puzzles – Feb 2017

I’m back from hiatus and there’s a lot to catch up on. I hope everyone had a happy and productive January!  I’m going to be starting something new with my “New Puzzles” post, picking my top 3 new puzzles of the month.

For your Edification – A Tip on Saving Shipping Costs:

I used to never order a single puzzle because the shipping cost for just one can be nearly as much as the puzzle itself! Yet I’m not always ready to spend $75 to get free shipping either. That’s why I really enjoy the Puzzle Warehouse’s “Puzzle of the Month” club because it means year-long free shipping. You’ll receive a puzzle each month with Puzzle of the Month club, and when you buy other items at any time, upon checkout you are asked if you’d like to hold that new purchase to ship with your puzzle of the month. Yes! This means I can order a single puzzle and have it sent to me later with my monthly shipment and there’s no shipping fee on it. I also keep a “Wish List” on puzzle warehouse, so when I get my email about my monthly selection, I can easily exchange it for a puzzle I really want. Win/win.

JIGSAW JUNKIES TOP PICKS

Below are my top 3 picks this month. There are all available for order right now at Puzzle Warehouse.

PICK #1: “Say Cheese” by Gobel & Knorr, Heye, 1500 pieces 

This is my favorite of the new 2017 Heye puzzles, and you can now order it at Puzzle Warehouse. I love the 1500 piece size, the highly detailed European city, and all the interesting figures. Grab it while it’s in stock!  Click here to view it at Puzzle Warehouse.

PICK #2: “Ladies Garden Club” by Susan Brabeau, Sunsout, 1000 pieces  

Last year’s “And the Winner Is…” from Susan Brabeau and Sunsout was one of my favorite puzzles of 2016. (See my review here.) This new 2017 puzzle looks just as good with lots of color and personality. This has been selling out everywhere, so grab it while you can! Click on the image to view it at Puzzle Warehouse.

PICK #3: “Classic Stamps” by White Mountain, 550 pieces  

For the collage lover, this stamps puzzle from White Mountain offers a sophisticated treat. It’s refreshing to see a new subject in collage images and I like the fine detail in all the stamps. Click on the image to view it at Puzzle Warehouse.

  1. Hi Jane. So glad to have you back. I was wondering if you have places you go to find puzzles from a series past. I often stumble upon an artist I like only to discover they have past puzzles that I can’t find. Also how do you find out who the artist is on a certain puzzle or how many puzzles a certain artist has done. The artist is not always listed on some selling sites and sometimes not even on the box itself. Any advice?
    Thanks, Denise

  2. Not a fan of puzzle of the month. Cheap puzzles you can buy elsewhere cheaper. Only good thing about puzzle of the month is being able to add puzzles you actually want to the monthly one and they all ship free.
