SIMPKINS CANTERBURY LANE
CELEBRATING OUR 27TH YEAR!

ABOUT US

Thank you for joining us!  The Simpkins Group of companies began as a small, home based business way back in 1975!  Wow!  Yes, that long ago...and yes, in those days we actually did run the business out of our garage--in summer heat and winter cold! 

Looking back....we wonder how we did it!  Over the years, with LOTS of encouragement from friends and neighbors and a very loyal group of customers, we've grown substantially.


In 2002, The Simpkins Group launched "Simpkins Wildlife & Gift", a company which is known for its natural, realistic, hand painted and hand detailed collection of wildlife figurines.  (Bear, Elk, Deer, Moose, Wolves, Buffalo, whales, sea otters, totem poles, etc.)  These are sold in gift shops located in and near the National and State Parks, resorts throughout the Rocky Mountains, and to cruise ship customers in Alaska!

In 2003, The Simpkins Group launched "Adelbert's Designs", a collection of gift items designed for the tourist markets in the Desert Southwest (Arizona and New Mexico).  Hot items feature kokopelli, geckos, quail, hummingbirds, Southwest Indian women figurines, etc.

In 2007, The Simpkins Group acquired, "Canterbury Lane", which is now in its 26th year in business.  Canterbury Lane is known for having the largest assortment of cowboy/western and Texas ornaments in the country.  Besides western themed gift items, it also has a collection of cabin/lodge themed items.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you have about our numerous interests.  We often help our large customer base source products--and help new fledgling companies (especially those that are relatively small, "Internet" only companies) overcome the hurdles of getting their product into the U.S. and Canadian markets.
