Moon Marble makes 8 Wonders

February 24, 2009

Tuesday Feb. 24 was a day much like any other day at Moon Marble Company, with customers perusing the aisles of marbles and toys and owner Bruce Breslow making colorful marbles for an enthusiastic audience.

One thing set this busy Tuesday apart, however: This was the day Breslow found out his business was one of the Kansas Sampler Foundation’s 8 Wonders of Kansas Commerce.

Breslow said he first found out at around 10:30 or 11 a.m., when he received an e-mail from Executive Director of the Kansas Sampler Foundation Marci Penner and a press release containing a list of all eight winners.

“When I first looked at the list, I didn’t see our name on there and I thought to myself, ‘That’s okay. It was an honor to be nominated,’” Breslow said. “And then I saw our name and I went, ‘Oh, we’re there.”
