If the whimsical name of this company doesn’t ring any bells, I’m pretty sure you’ll recognize some of the artists it houses. Born in Brooklyn earlier this year, this company is a funhouse collective of established artists who each bring a special brand of fun to the table. Artists such as Alex Pardee, Buff Monster, Jeremyville, Miss Van, and Tara McPherson are brought together under one gingerbread roof to make the world a much more wondrously colourful place.

The Cotton Candy Machine is crammed full of all kinds of treats: from limited run art toys, to t-shirts, not to mention their highly desirable screen prints. They even have some supercool housewares. If Tara McPherson makes your world go round, as she does mine, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled on this site. She’s one busy gal and the shop offers a tantalizing array of goodies featuring her delightful characters. If you see something there that strikes your fancy, you’d better pounce, because her colourful confections are flying off the shelves.
