There are certain names I will probably never forget. One of those names is from the very first customer who placed an order for ViaBoxes on our website on July 23, 2005. It was very exciting to see the order come through. I wish there were a way we could have framed our first one dollar bill, but I did keep the printed email receipt for a long time.
Since that first order, we have sold over 20,000 ViaBoxes and connectable accessories to families in all 50 states across the country. Inspired by the natural messiness of children, ViaBoxes were originally designed as toy boxes. The site at the time was called viatoybox.com, but as our kids have grown up and their needs have changed, our original ViaBoxes have been used for more than just toys.
Just like the very first ones we shipped from the garage, our multi-functional real wood storage cubes are made with the same high quality birch plywood and eco-friendly paints and finishes. Since then, we have improved the ViaBoxes by adding more useful accessories, like Inside Shelves, Drawers and Racks, and offering them in other finishes, like Honey and Espresso.
We are grateful and encouraged when our customers return to order again because that’s the big idea behind ViaBoxes. You can use them for a long time and in so many ways because they are built with durable materials to outlast childhood. Plus, you can grow your furniture by connecting additional ViaBoxes and accessories. So, be confident in our little known company and our products. In six years, you may be ready to buy more, too. Thank you, Gerald, we really appreciate it!
