In the mean time I'll show you my real reason for going to the US, (not that Alt was not real), but it wasn't the original reason for my trip.
I own a store, which belonged to my mother and now belongs to me, so it has been in the family for 30 something years now.
Since the little one was born, I haven't been to the NYIGF, which is where I try to find new companies to work with, and even if I drifted away from my path (I ended looking at way too many stationery booths and for your information I don't sell stationery at my store) it ended up being very helpful and inspiring.
So here are a few of the things that I enjoyed during my very short trip to NYC.
|Everything at the Chewing the Cud booth is on my wish list.|
|This feathers and arrows from The Great Lakes Goods were simply beautiful.|
|It was so nice to see Forage Haberdashery in person, their bow ties are just perfect.|
|The perfect temporary tattoo from Tattly. I'm considering buying a whole stack!|
|I wanted to buy one of each at the 1973 booth. A good thing that it was a wholesale show.|
|Being a fan of Converse, I was drawn right to this wall.|
|My first time at Purl Soho, and I think it is actually a good thing this store is far, far away from me.|
And last but not least, the one stop for full on inspiration. Anthropologie has the best product and window design team. Those are embroidered doilies and handkerchiefs. Can I have them all, pretty please? It seems to me that what attracts me are walls of the same thing.
Wishing you a great and relaxing sunday.
