Alright. As promised, here are some more photos from my day at the “gift show” in New York City. I have often bemoaned that we don’t have more of a show like they do in Atlanta, here in New York, but one day, I want to go to that show. High Point makes me break out in hives. But, Atlanta sounds really nice.
The gift show has had its struggles in recent years along with the rest of the economy. There are a lot of vendors who don’t show there any more. Some have had to close their doors permanently. Still, every year, I discover new vendors and some of them have been there for a while, its just that one year, they have a display that really catches my eye.
BTW, I enjoy looking at the displays themselves. I’ve noticed that the best ones, like Coco Cozy are really well-lit and the background is in keeping with their furnishings/wares. Presentation is everything!
Here again, is a sampling of some of my favorite vignettes and vendors.
I think that this page looks like Stockholm meets Beijing. cool. I think I’m getting better at snapping pics without moving the camera all over the place!
The vendors, not in any particular order. Some of the sites, you may not be able to access, without a trade account, but most of them you can.
Bliss Studio (the weathered pieces and pillows)
Tempaper (removable wallpaper! How cool is that?)
Dash and Albert (Love, love, LOVE this company! superb, nicely priced rugs and ALWAYS friendly, helpful customer service, and if in stock– super quick turn around!)
