DEMDACO Introduces Artist Sharon Nowlan

DEMDACO is honored to introduce artist Sharon Nowlan's uplifting and distinctive pebble art collection

October 16, 2017, Leawood, Kansas — DEMDACO, the wholesale distribution firm specializing in gift and home décor products, is proud to announce its new partnership with fine artist Sharon Nowlan and introduce The Sharon Nowlan Collection to the gift industry.

The collection began with a handful pebbles Sharon discovered on a beach outing and shaped into a poignant depiction of a grandmother and child. From these first pebble ripples across an artist’s spirit came a line of framed art that celebrates the moments and relationships that touch the heart.

Sharon Nowlan’s artistry is reflective of the beautiful land and seascapes of Nova Scotia where she grew up drawing, painting and creating in a variety of media. The Sharon Nowlan Collection transforms a mix of composite pebbles and other materials into inspirational and aspirational design concepts, from angels and devoted friends to sentiments such as “Celebrate life,” and “Follow your heart.”

These fine artisan reproductions powerfully capture experiences across the relationship spectrum, offering special occasion and “just because” gifts for everyone, including couples, family, friends and individuals.

Sharon Nowlan’s minimalist style allows the subject matter to make its own powerful statement. A neutral, earth-toned color palette and versatile display features, complements many home décor styles. The pieces feature a textured wood frame with high-quality matte board, to set off the dimensional beauty of the art, and an easel back.

This imaginative, heartfelt collection from DEMDACO is currently available for purchase by retailers. Please contact your Territory Manager, visit our showrooms, or contact Customer Care to order.

Toys and Gifts Bring Life to The Christmas Wish Children's Book

Toys and Gifts Bring Life to The Christmas Wish Children's Book

Heartwarming toys and gifts bring to life the holiday children’s book, The Christmas Wish

August 19, 2016, Leawood, Kansas — DEMDACO, the wholesale distribution firm specializing in gift and home décor products, has collaborated with the Minnesota author-and-photographer team, Lori Evert and Per Breiehagen, to bring to life their New York Times Bestseller, The Christmas Wish, with a delightful collection of companion gift products. The charming assortment of wall art, ornaments, plush toys and more reflect the heartwarming story that has become a beloved holiday children’s classic.

The Christmas Wish is the story of Anja, a brave and kind child, who sets out on an adventure to make her dream of helping Santa Claus come true. With the generous help of many animal friends – from a bright cardinal to a strong horse to a gentle polar bear – Anja joyfully travels the snowy terrain to meet her Christmas hero.

The book’s heartwarming narrative was spun from the creative imagination of prop, set, and wardrobe stylist Lori Evert when her husband, award-winning photographer Per Breiehagen, captured their real-life daughter, Anja, in a magical image with a reindeer. The trio embarked on a family project to bring the timeless Nordic story to life by illustrating it with breathtaking photographs starring the kind and adventurous Anja.

Now admirers of the beloved holiday children’s book can embrace and share the story of The Christmas Wish through charming gifts and decorative accessories that reflect the book’s characters and magical adventures. Per’s captivating photography is featured on wall art, mugs and note cards, while plush toys, snow globes and ornaments depict characters and scenes from the story.

This delightful collection from DEMDACO is currently available at gift shops throughout the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area.
