Busy Weekend

I had quite a busy weekend - of course my weekend is your Monday and Tuesday - at the Stationery Show and at ICFF. Both have been covered quite well in the blog world and I am still making decisions about what works for the store, but I'll just say for now that many wonderful things were found. One fun surprise was seeing an interview in print - Meg who is a mom, a writer and a paper goods and housewares purveyor has written a book for crafty entrepreneurs and it will be released in a couple months by Chronicle Books. It's called Craft Inc. and within, yours truly talks about opening a retail store. There are many other interviews and lots of great advice about getting your business off the ground. Congrats Meg!

Lots of new stuff arrived today too - read the rest of this entry for some news and photos.

We are pleased to bring you Princess Tina all the way from Australia. This is the graphics-driven brainchild of a lady named Beci and her designs are sweet, casual and funny. We have some tees, some totes, a really reasonable blue leather bag, and this fab hoodie with a button-tab closure. I think we'll get that one into the webshop this week!

Also new for us is a design by Richard Shed of the UK, I saw the prototype at ICFF 2006 and lo and behold it is now in production. It's called the Here Hook and it's a very straightforward coat hook (I have a thing for hooks right now, for some reason) and we have it in white, charcoal and red. Simple and brilliant. Up soon in the webshop.


Finally we have a bit of jewelry from Alliway of Honolulu. She is a friend of a friend and makes simple and iconic jewelry which is my thing. Here is just one style we received.


Jewelry restock: We are restocked on a few of Vanessa Yanow's zipper necklaces, they are just so pretty and fun. We also have some of Buji Bijoux restocked at a new lower price. Finally we have more of the B Jewelry sterling hoops in smaller sizes for you minimalists.
