Mitchell's Mobile Shop
4 x 500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzles

$35.00
Description

Long before families shopped online, Derek Mitchell was just the answer. Families in the 60s were not as mobile as they are today and if you lived in a village, it wasn’t that easy to get into the nearest town to do your shopping. Mitchell’s Mobile Shop provided groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables almost to your door!

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.

We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.

Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

    ABOUT THE ARTIST

    Trevor Mitchell

    After leaving Bradford Art College in 1979 with a Diploma in Art and Design, Trevor began his career as an art director at a London advertising agency. He returned to his native West Yorkshire a few years later and worked for several design studios and advertising agencies before going freelance in 1986.
    We work with talented artists from around the world and for every puzzle sold, a percentage of that sale goes directly to the artist.
