We’re back with our second Vapor of the summer! This week we have a blue Vapor available exclusively through our friends over at Kites & Puppets in Vancouver, BC. Give their team a call at (604) 685-9877 if you’d like a chance to own this piece of kiting history! Only 10 have been made, so be sure to keep an eye on our feed through the rest of 2017 to find out when and where you can get your hands on one of these iconic kites.
From Sally Fontana, owner of Kites & Puppets: “In 1982 I opened Kites & Puppets on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC. We were one of the first retailers to join in on the revitalization of Granville Island, which has now become one of Vancouver’s top destinations for tourists and locals. It was ten years later that I first met Mark and Scobie of Prism Kites. It was 1992 and I had invited them to Vancouver to demonstrate their first kite (the Radian) at our annual Pacific Rim Kite Festival. The Radian was a radical change from the Top of the Line Spinoff and Team kites. Handmade (as were all stunt kites at this time) it came with an impressive 9 foot wingspan, 4 feet of depth and looked beautiful in the sky. I was impressed and became Prism’s first wholesale customer by buying all the kites they brought. Now, 25 years later, Prism is still producing innovative kites and selling them all over the world and they remain one of our best-selling kite brands.
Over the past few decades the kite industry has evolved and moved into another phase, with online sales, Amazon and e-Bay. Fortunately specialty brick and mortar kite shops like Kites & Puppets are still thriving and bringing joy to our customers. We remain a family run business and specialize in promoting positive childhood memories with our kites and toys, and hope to continue doing this for many more decades. Remember: ‘Wherever you may be, the winds blow free’.” #prismkites #iflyprism #prismvapor #kitesandpuppets #seattlekites
