We’ve all read the headlines. Markets are falling, then rising. Consumer confidence is down, consumer confidence is up!
It’s starting to sound like a Dr. Seuss book.
In the meantime, here at Kaleidoscopes To You, we keep doing what most of the economy is doing. We’re showing up and working hard. We are stocking the shelves and preparing for the holiday sales season. We conservatively optimistic.
I’m starting to pick out Christmas carols. Thinking about where to put up a Christmas Tree in our new office space.
So here’s a few of my favorite picks for Christmas this season at Kaleidoscopes To You.
Trio series is back and even better by the Colliers! Trio Kaleidoscopes by the Colliers at Kaleidoscopes To You
This kaleidoscope is amazing on the exterior and the interior.

Colliers offer an incredible value by incorporating 3 complete kaleidoscope into one tube with one object cell. This kaleidoscope also offers a rare circular or tubular mirror system which creates a vortex image.
Trio Circular Interior
For a holiday gift that makes them say “OMG how did they do that?!?!” , this is my favorite pick.

People often ask us “What is the most popular color in a kaleidoscope?” The answer is blue. Blue is a calm and soothing color; something people are always searching for in the hectic, modern life. And here are some of my favorite Blue scope options covering all styles and prices.
This Liquid Motion Kaleidoscope has a great bang for the buck. Many people describe the interior image as fireworks within a scope!
