    We had a chance to visit the store last year and loved it! I still have my eye on the wedding scope, although we consider it the diversity scope. I like the peek inside.

    I enjoyed my visit to your shop during the Balloon Fiesta. It was really hard to leave with only two kaleidoscopes. Having the inside views on this site means I can visit again and again. Thanks!

    My wife and I along with some friends discovered your shop a few years ago while in Albuquerque. We have since ordered a number of Kaleid and Teleidoscopes. We have had so many comments about them from friends who are visiting. Hope to someday return and visit again. In the meantime will enjoy the website.

    Your site was shared with me by a friend who visited your gallery last week. He was very impressed, knows of my interest in kaleidoscopes and shared with me. How very beautiful the video images are. Thanks for providing such a beautiful site.

    I just wanted to say how much we loved your store. We attended a meeting at the Hotel Albuquerque. Our trip through Old Town was just wonderful. Your store made us feel like kids again. Of course I had to buy something to show the kids and explain what a wonderful time we had looking at all of the kaleidoscopes. When I return for another visit, and I’m sure I will, I will definitely stop by for another visit. Thanks.

    Hello, just ran across your site, thrilled I think this is the shop we bought a great gift for a friend from, are you just off the plaza toward the back parking lot? I am looking for another awesome gift for a first birthday. It will not be played with of course, but something special to be put up until she is older. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I finally have a computer at my house and your website is great. I visited your store when you were first moving to the new location and have been back several times. I’m excited about being able to visit on-line. It’s nice to have a connection, but you know what they say…ain’t nothing like the real thing…I’m glad you are open and wish you the best…I still love my kaleidoscope….

    May 17, 2014 @ 5:05 am

    I would like to see your description and impressions for each scope. I guess I want the same personal experience I get from actually being in the store. The pictures are great and I love the “peek inside” video. I just hate we aren’t going to be able to make a personal visit before Christmas.

    May 17, 2014 @ 5:04 am

    My wife and I received a stunning kaleidoscope years ago as a wedding gift from my mother. Tonight I picked it up to look through it, because I’m am always fasinated by it, and for the first time I saw the name of the artist on the side,Chesnik. I can only assume it was made by you. I just wanted to say thank you for creating such a wonderfull work of art that we will enjoy for a life-time. My mother has since passed away and I will forever think of her as I walk by it. Thank you.

    I saw the past november 2006, one of your kaleidoscopes in madrid (spain) in an optician, while they were repairing the glasses of my boyfriend I was looking on the Kaleidospe all the time, my boyfriend told me in a moment, stop – you look like a chil- and really I was in my marvellous childhood world, I ask the owner where he bought and he told it was a present, I took note of your address for to try to find something about you on internet and here is the result. Congratulations and Many thanks for to return to me in a dream world that made me forget the actual life. I hope to go to USA one day and visit your place, will be after 30 years because we have a morgage on my house, but I’m sure that the day I will go I will buy one of your beautiful items for to enjoy every day and every night looking the crystal stars. Thank you . PD. Sorry for my english. Kindly regards.

    I love your website, very beautiful. I am a survivor of sexual abuse as a child and domestic violence and this evening I was remembering the kaleidescope I used to have when I was a little girl. When I looked into it, it took me away from the abuse. I especially love the secret garden one because of it’s name and it’s beauty. I am a poet/writer and one of my poems is about my view of the world through my scope. The title of my book is “Reflections of My Battered Life” a book of poetry reflecting my experiences with abuse, just like a kaleidescope. Thanks for saving me, again.

    I think this is the shop I bought my kaliedoscopes from when my sister and I visited our brother about 10 years ago. There are some incredibly beautiful and unique works of art. I bought 2 that day and still love to look through them. I just ordered one for my young grandson who also loves kaliedoscopes and things that are intriguing.

    May 17, 2014 @ 4:29 am

    Dan Rose forwarded your information to me and several other in the Andrew Hill “pipeline.” He is always thoughtful to do such things. I congratulate on your marvelous niche marketing choice. Kaleidoscopes are always a delightful pasttime and amusement for any age. I miss the one I had as a child. Right now I’m at the beginning of our extremely short planting/growing season and have had several delays because of unusual storm activity. While indoors I’m trying to make sense of internet marketing and know there is more than just putting up a website and expecting that the entire planet will instantly know and rush there with creditcards in hand. If I had maketing mentoring to help me up over that very steep learning curve and you had an affiliate program then I would be delighted to help promote you. The niches I am interested in are very many, but the ones closest to my heart are graphics, high-yield organic gardening methods, basic wilderness survival techniques, DIY wine making, chocolate/cherries/cheese/wine gift baskets, and gardening techniques for the elderly and handicapped. My life would be simpler if I had only one interest and focus in life…alas…

  81. Howard Kerrville, Harper TX

    Glad to see Henry Bergeson’s kaleidoscopes in your gallery. He does fine work. I will be attending a conference there this week – if possible to some how get to Old Town I surely wll visit the gallery. It appears to be the place to visit while in Albuquerque.

  83. Holly, Dallas TX
