We are both accordionists (Joan - professional, Dan - amateur), in fact, we were introduced by a fellow accordionist! Like many other accordionists, we were always looking for things such as T-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers, ANYTHING with accordions, for our collection. We came across many items with musical instruments on them, but rarely were these instruments accordions. One day, a friend said, "Joan, why don't you put some of your art work on a note card or a shirt?" That, in a nutshell, is how SqueezinArt was born in October 1994.
We have come a long way in a very short time from our first catalogue (one page with five items) to our current website! We have met some wonderful people in person, by phone and fax, and over the Internet, from as far away as New Zealand and Australia, Finland, Iceland, and many other places worldwide! We have also made some great new personal friends!
As we enter our 23rd year of business (this is only a part-time avocation for two people who LOVE the accordion), we plan to continue with our basic philosophy -- high quality gift items that are unique and reasonably priced, along with fast and personal service. In addition to items that we have created or found throughout our travels (we are ALWAYS on the lookout!), we have received great ideas and "hot tips" from many customers within and outside the US. If you don't find what you are looking for in our catalogue, just contact us - we are always happy to do custom work!
