What is Marcopoloni?

Our goal is to bring people like you, who cherish and appreciate fine artistry, closer to the artisans who create them. Everything we offer is handmade by carefully-selected artisans who pour their love and pride into each piece of work.

Much as Marco Polo brought the Western world in contact with the treasures of the Far East in the late 13th century, Marcopoloni strives to put you in touch with beautiful handmade goods from around the world!

Our new Flip video camera: just a cool gadget or a floodgate for our business?

The new video camera has arrived earlier than expected, and it’s been providing us with some much-needed entertainment here at the office. As we fought over the little palm-sized device (smaller than the iPhone!), we’ve already come to love its simplicity and ease of use.

Here is a test video I shot of Daniele doing what he does best – finding silly geeky things to do during his lunch break. Today, it was testing some dictation software. Tomorrow, it will be coding an interactive recipe application.

But the big question still remains, “is this just another cool gadget, or could it possibly be the big thing that opens up a floodgate for our tiny business?” The reason for getting the device was to do video reviews of products that have unique features that are hard to describe with static images, such as our Snaplink key chain. Well, that, and it was Daniele’s birthday.

We hope this proves to be …  if not a floodgate, at least a floodgatino, or a little floodgate.  Time – and lots of amateur product videos – will only tell.
