It’s time for a new puzzle post for September! Where does the time go? This is a shortish month, but there are some great new puzzles.
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.
When Puzzles are Out of Stock:
The inventory at Puzzle Warehouse moves quickly, and due to limited warehouse space, only certain amounts of any one titles are brought in at a time. But most of our suppliers replenish rapidly. When a puzzle is out of stock, it’s likely to be back in stock within a week or two. Enter your email address on the out of stock page to be notified when it returns so you can place an order before it’s out again!
JIGSAW JUNKIES TOP PICKS
These are my top picks of the new puzzles that are currently available at Puzzle Warehouse.
TOP PICK #1: “A Christmas Greeting” by Charles Wysocki, Buffalo Games, 1000 pieces
A new Christmas-themed puzzle by Wysocki in 1000 pieces is always welcome, and the subtle colors in this one are gorgeous.
TOP PICK #2: “Great Americans” by James Mellett, White Mountain, 1000 pieces
So much work goes into these hand-drawn historic collage images, from researching to all the line drawing and arranging. Another instant classic from James Mellett.
TOP PICK #3: “A Christmas Village”, Sunsout, 625 pieces
My third “top pick” is this fun new Sunsout puzzle in a style and size ideal for a family project.
