Glimpses from the Gift Show

Needless to say buying trips are the most fun part of owning a store. We take an early train to New York on Monday, hit the Javits Center, where either the gift show or other market is held, then treat ourselves to a very nice dinner at night, and always stay at the ink 48, a wonderful Kimpton Hotel that is walking distance from the Javits Center. We get up the next day at a little slower pace but manage to finish all our buying before we get on a train for home that evening.

This week was “the gift show,” now called NY NOW, which has home, lifestyle, and gifts, and is just one of several shows we attend. We’ve written about our buying trips plenty of times before but I think it’s always fun to see what’s new out there.

The home section is my personal favorite section of the show.

The gift show is full of show rooms to demonstrate how items will look in a home

Great rooms are set up for inspiration.

Fell in love with this guy as I was walking by!

Cozy blankets have us dreaming of fall at the gift show

These throws make me long for a snowy day. There are plenty of rug companies but we always enjoy looking through all the cowhides. These items together would make for a cozy space!

Christmas at the NY NOW gift show

And speaking of cozy, hard to believe but we are buying Holiday for the store now! And some great gifts…

The gift show has so many different items - including clothing!

And our favorite French lady who always offers up some fabulous, trendy clothes at great prices. She’s modeling one of the sweaters we bought here.

We stopped at Upland for dinner after the first night of the gift show

We all three highly recommend all three restaurants we tried while in New York for the gift show!

These pictures are just a small sampling of everything we all we saw. We had a great time buying to bring you all the most fabulous items at the show. Come check us out.
