Fun Finds at NY NOW

August 19, 2013

20130819- 054052.jpg What was the New York International Gift Fair is now named, NY NOW. Different name, still the best show, hands down. It was a full day of buying and it was soooo very good. The shops & website are going to be brimming with fab new finds.

20130819-054752.jpg I am thrilled to be adding the works of British collage artist Clare Goddard to our mix. I have been a fan of her assemblages forever. They are going to be so cool mixed in on the art wall at the Home store.

20130819-055030.jpg John Derian added some new melamine plates to his already glorious collection that are just so fun. Look for those coming our way in the coming months.

20130819-055235.jpg I found these fabulous swings that you install in a tree. I adore these. New and old fashioned at the same time.

20130819-055429.jpg Really, really lovely cotton throw blankets with bold graphics running throughout.

20130819-055605.jpg New coasters. These will look so fun tied-up for a Christmas host/hostess gift.
