new york gift show: days three, four & five


I’ve been attending the new york gift show since saturday. by day three I was so tired I just couldn’t muster up the energy to format images and use my brain to write about my day. so here’s a long list of more treasure finds — and the people making and selling them — from days three, four & five.

it’s our friend emily sugihara, creator supreme of baggu reusable shopping bags! notice the backpacks on the wall behind emily. I used one throughout the show (and parts of the city) and I must say they work like a dream. great design emily and pia — my shoppers will be happy to be using them very very soon!

boo, the world’s cutest dog has had his own blog for years and is now making the big bucks with his first book release. think of who you’ll be gifting this to this coming holiday season. is he too cute for words?

I’ve received lots of requests for belts, so here you have it. handmade leather belts from LA artist kim white. really gorgeous work and they feel just as good as they look!

ecojot’s sweetest notebooks will be restocked, everyone! lots of birds and flowers on notebooks in all shapes and sizes, designed by the coolest couple from toronto.

f. is for frank = really really cool charms and jewelry. you’ll be seeing the charms soon, heavenly metal shoppers!

say ‘hey’ to randy of homart! we had fun picking out some new display pieces for the store.

meet kat of spruce jewelry. she won best booth in the new york’s newest! check out her sweet jewelry.

bungalow360 is wallets and bags in the sweetest fabrics. these are going to be really great holiday gifts too!

ian nicholas was so happy to see me again . . . and to show off his new work. more sweet birds and houses on his handcrafted wall plaques.

mincing mockingbird’s bird boxes just make me happy. as they do alot of you as well. now we’ll have bigger sizes and shapes for you to chirp over.

meet the creative designer of sakroots’ sweet fabric bags and wallets. sakroots is not just crocheted bags anymore! I can’t wait to share these cute pieces with you.

mosey is sustainable, great looking and practical bags made from recycled plastic bottles. I’ll be introducing the line to ann arbor with two great styles.

and here’s olga, the brains behind opslud, the most irreverent greeting cards in the world! wait ’til you see olga’s take on holiday cards.

a couple more book titles from hachette books will be arriving soon, including why we broke up, illustrated by the wonderful maira kalman!
