It’s the holiday season, and families are spending more time together. But if you want something for entertainment or a one-of-kind gift, a Colorado startup might be your answer.
You’re in good company with Missing Piece puzzle exchange.
Erin Leidy loves puzzles. But over time, she noticed a problem.
“I was doing so many [puzzles], and I’d do them one time, and I put them in my closet,” Leidy said. “And then they just sit there.”
She collected so many, her garage became its own puzzle, with each box in a specific place.
Her solution was to share them with others.
“Every different nook and cranny has puzzles,” Leidy said. “So, these ones are for sale here. I have a lot for rent over there.”
Using the old Netflix DVD rental model, she created the Missing Piece business, a website where you can choose from hundreds of puzzles to try at home and send them back when you’re done.
