Kerstin was born & raised in Sweden. After marrying her American husband she arrived in New York in 1965. In 1966 with the support of her husband she purchased a small import/manufacturing company in Manhattan. The small company Coptex Import was the manufacturer of the lovely Lull A Baby Music Box. At that time 100% of the business was wholesale selling to department stores. At that same time Kerstin started a Mail order company-Sandmark House Inc. Sandmark being her maiden name, was to market the Lull A Baby music box directly to the consumer in areas that were not covered by the large Department Stores. After a short period of time Kerstin added the Music Box Door Chime to the line of exclusively manufactured music boxes. This item was marketed mainly to independent Gift Shops through out the United States. After a couple of years, Kerstin expanded the business to include the import/wholesale of Cuckoo clocks from Germany. By now the business had outgrown the space in Manhattan so Kerstin and her husband decided to move to Jacksonville, FL., it was here Kerstin expanded Sandmark House to include the retail sale of clocks, music boxes, clock and watch repair. By 1978 Kerstin moved the business out to its current location on Beach Blvd. This has proven to be a great location for both the repair & retail sales division of the company. Sandmark House has sold the music boxes both to stores & directly to consumers wherever they may be. Kerstin is so grateful for the fine people working for Sandmark House. Joe is the son of the 1st clock maker who started with Kerstin in 1970. Tony has worked as a master clockmaker for Sandmark House since 1994. Felix, Joe's son is a third generation clockmaker. Connie has been with the company since 1996. We're working together to give the best possible service. Kerstin's & Sandmark House's motto is "Do unto to others as you would have them to unto you." This guides every decision on service, product selection & pricing.
