On a cold morning in Alpharetta, GA (I know we do not get that many of them so I am not whining) we took these pictures.  The sun was coming up and incredibly bright as it glared into our warehouse.  While we have the shutter doors open, these pictures are not actually taken in the sun but in the shade.  You can see the line of sun in the first picture.

We added some of our 3×6″ Calacatta honed and Calacatta pencil trims honed to the picture to show how well it matches for any bathroom applications.  The price of just $14.95SF is bound to cause some concern and we would be happy to take $50.00SF (like our brick and mortar competitors) if it makes you feel better, but the reality is:

  1. We buy direct, so no supply chain to swallow up margin – instead we pass the savings onto you.  You are essentially positioned in the supply chain as a retailer.
  2. We buy volume.  Full containers which 43,000Lbs of marble, the maximum allowed on US highways.  Economies of scale take effect.  Then we pass the savings onto you.
  3. No frills marketing strategy.  It’s not that we like to keep things a secret we just want to avoid the costs associated with telling everyone.  Those “telling everyone” costs can quickly represent 10-20% increase on the product cost.  It would take our $14.95SF 12×12″ Calacatta to $18SF.  Instead we hope the product quality will be so impressive and price so amazing you will tell everyone.  So please, please, please “tell everyone”.
