    Crescent has acquired Bainbridge and related brands

    This is great news. I love and use the Nurrie products, but haven't used any of the Bainbridge products since 2017 when they changed their mircochamber and zeolotes composition in their artcare mats, but wouldn't tell their customers what changed. And they were bought out by Sycamore...

    Happy Birthday, Russ Wood!
