The Colossal Shop 2013-2021
Launched in 2013, the Colossal Shop served as the best little online gift shop to one of the biggest art and design blogs. For years, we shipped tens of thousands of design objects, toys, prints, and art supplies to happy customers in 75 countries. It was a labor of love, but the attention spent running the store often vastly outstripped the returns. In 2019, we made the hard decision to close the shop and our Chicago headquarters at the outset of the COVID pandemic.
The Colossal Shop re-opened for a brief window in 2021 as we experimented with new ideas, but we have since limited our inventory.
The Colossal Shop 2022
The Colossal Shop will remain open this year with a focus almost exclusively on limited-edition artist prints, which we’ll release quarterly. We’re excited to announce our artist lineup soon, and stay tuned for other special products and art objects as the year progresses.
The Colossal Shop has been featured in publications including National Geographic, Fast Company, Cool Material, Gizmodo, Martha Stewart, Architectural Digest, and Apartment Therapy.
