Atlanta Gift Show

Saturday, I hiked up to Atlanta and scoped out the gift show at AmericasMart.  I absolutely LOVE going to this show and seeing what is out there.  My own booth didn't materialize for this show but I am crazy determined to be there come July.  I am embarking on a complete website overhaul this weekend and am adding a wholesale feature for my jewelry line..very fun stuff.  Luckily, I found a handful of great things to add to my site and for my upcoming trunk shows.



Cache Pot Candles...such a cute gift.  These hand-poured candles come in a reusable metal container.  I had such a hard time picking which ones I wanted, but this was my assortment...


These cute tote bags...




I was dying over these chunky notepads..


I just smiled when I saw all of the new Ann Page item on display..


Easter Chevron...


new monogram styles...


new stickers...


personalized puzzles..what a cute gift...


cutest calendars...



and amazing coasters...this whole line is so fun.


I rounded it all out at Lifeguard Press with some Lilly goodies...these coolers


these new lined freezer bags


and new market totes.  I had so much gear from the show, they were sweet enough to give me an older market tote to use..what a bonus!



I stopped by the Fornash showroom and Stephanie Fornash Kennedy was there...I hadn't seen her since I met her two years ago at this same show.  All of her stuff is so popular, I sold the heck out of the leather and gold bracelets this holiday season.





I also got some new treats from Rebecca Ray...wrap leather bracelets with rosette charms.  The charms are horses, dogs and foxes.  So darn cute....



One line I was so excited to see in person for the first time was the Carrie Dunham purse line.  Carrie was there herself and my friend and I recognized the bags before realizing it was her.  I featured her bags on this blog last year and they did not disappoint in person.


A fresh take on the Bermuda bag of the past, these adorable bags are made in the USA and so adorable, there is one for every occasion.


Starting with the handles, black, dark brown, white and gold...


and then the covers; linen, skin and prints


I wasn't able to pick this line up yet, but it is definitely on my list.  I had my eye on several combinations!  Check out www.carriedunham.com 

More to come soon!
