FOURTH ANNIVERSARY of The Slovak Import Company
- This is the 4th Anniversary of the Slovak Import Company and I
thought I would share with you a brief history of how the Company
was started, plus some thoughts on Slovakia. In addition, to
commemorate this anniversary there are a few sale items.
In 2001 I was visiting family in Krpelany, Slovakia (near Martin)
and asked if they new someone who sold Slovak products. They
directed me to a family who sold Slovak products via displays at
expositions world wide. This family gave me a tour of there home
which contained hundreds of exquisitely beautiful Slovak artwork.
I was stunned at the beauty of these items. However, after
several months of delays in dealing with these people, nothing
happened. In July of 2001, I decided to travel around Slovakia,
with camera in hand, to visit companies making crystal glass,
Modra ceramics and many other products. Shortly after that I
turned my Prodigy personal web site into what is now the Slovak
Import Company and started displaying pictures of Slovakia and
products from Slovakia.
Need to mention that in about 1975, I was working and living near
Greenwich, CT. One day I was looking for an address near Mt.
Kisko, New York and noticed this very large warehouse called the
Polish Import Company. Inside the warehouse I saw it was chock
full of products. At the time, wondered why I had never heard of
anything like this for the then Czechoslovakia. Had visited
Czechoslovakia several times by then and new the difficulties of
entering and traveling in Slovakia, but it never dawned on me on
how this restricted commerce with Czechoslovakia.

- Hi everyone! Another family name in my family tree is
Posk. It seems pretty rare - could it be a variation
on another name, such as Posch or Poszek? Any thoughts
or suggestions would be welcome!
