I have quite a few clients asking about these globes.


I haven't been able to track down a wholesaler for these,
any help is appreciated!

A better first post I couldn't have asked for! :D

I contacted them this morning and they are emailing the info.

Oh welcome to Sawmill Creek, if you have been lurking for a while
step on up, I'm sure you have much to share.

These objects float at a perfect point of balance between gravitational forces and the buoyant forces of surrounding fluids, and are brought to life by the energy of ambient light and by the force of the earth's magnetic field.
What the... :confused:

Martin, Are you going to be engraving those? If so, on the base I assume?

When they talk like that it usually means they want to sound like it's worth$$$$.

I got their wholesale pricing and it's quite a bit higher than I anticipated, which is a
shame as I feel I have a market for them. I stand to make about $10-$15 which ain't
much considering the upfront cost and shipping.


I planned to use the globe with the Circle Team Award I get from PDU. (see attached)
PDU sells this without the globe I add a crystal one to it. (this piece calls for a globe it
looks incomplete without one. I emailed a photo to them but they never replied?)

I still may get one or two for the shop as they do attract attention. I just wish they were
a bit cheaper!

Gee, thanks a LOT, John... NOW I need to buy one :( ;) It actually sounds like a very cool piece of engineering.

They are pretty neat. Not cheap though. You can save about $25 going directly from the manufacturer
they will sell one at a time, discounts at larger quantities.

I got 2 different ones in the shop last week and they did get a lot of attention.

That larger ones would really be cool, but not quite yet. :-(
Hoping the price comes down in time like the plasma globes, they started out at over $1000.
