Back from the City

6 Sep

Last week, we spent a solid two days in New York City exploring the international gift show and wandering around the wholesale district. The show itself is enormous- spanning every floor of Javits Center as well as Piers 92 and 94. Certain items seem to have been trending with vendors, like endless wooden cutting boards, all sorts of ceramic pots, and oodles of pillows and more pillows. (For photos of the show, try here or here.) We saw new vendors plus familiar favorites, and a plethora of talented designers and makers; and found fantastic home accessories and decor, which should be arriving in the coming weeks.

While in the city, nothing quite caught my attention like these sophisticated leather cuffs and bracelets. I’m describing them as “utilitarian chic” – the sleek metallic hardware and deco jewels paired with soft leather are a match made in jewelry heaven. I think they would add edge to a flirty dress or add polish to jeans and a t-shirt. Stop in the shop to try one on for size, or give us a call to have one shipped straight to your door.

all the best,
