It’s craft time! We love doing crafts in our house. We are always coloring or painting something. Especially on rainy days!
Today I want to introduce you to a wonderful company called Oriental Trading Company (OTC). It started with just a family gift shop owned by Harry Watanabe in 1932. Over the years he built the company up to other Novelties and gifts. By the 50’s it was known as a major supplier to US Carnivals. By the late 70’s when his son, Terry because president and made it the go to party supply place for schools, churches and even homes. Now they offer over 40,000 products through catalogs and online sales making ordering supplies for business, non profit organizations and more easier then before! While the Watanabe’s have since passed the torche the family fun feel has not changed one bit!
Ok so I may be a bit biased because the company was started and still operates in my hometown of Omaha, NE (and I worked there back in the day). But this company has a lot of fun and affordable items! Their catalogs no consists of
