NYIGF August 2011, Part 2

As promised, I’m back with a few more favorites from the summer Gift Fair!  First up today, the unbelievably gorgeous porcelain ceramics from Portland-based Pigeon Toe.  In addition to vases, bowls, and votives, they recently released a collection of porcelain string lights!  I’m also rather partial to the bird house and wind chimes.

The next booth might take the prize as my favorite new discovery: UK-based Lazy Oaf.  I love the adorable line of bright greeting cards, illustrated notebooks, patterned tape, and jewelry.  And the booth design is just as fun – the design was created using black electrical tape!

Next up, Russell + Hazel.  They have lots of calendars and office stationery, but I zeroed in on a new collection of boxed notecards.  Each one has a different message, from birthday cards to change of address cards.  So pretty!

These are oversize gift cards.  They’re huge!  They’re around 6 x 8″ and come with a gift card enclosure envelope affixed on the back of the card.  I love the gold borders!

It was so nice to see Viola from Chewing the Cud at NYIGF – I love her collection of pretty fabric gift wrap and tote bags, and of course her beautiful stationery and stamp kits.  Viola just introduced some amazing limited edition DIY kits in vintage cigar boxes.  Fun!

I stumbled upon these gorgeous patterned textiles from Pehr.  Each design is hand-printed in India, including napkins, table runners, placemats, and pillows.  Of course I love the stripes and chevron pattern, but I’m also really loving the more organic and floral designs.  So pretty!


The collections from Bailey Doesn’t Bark combine three of my favorite things – ceramics, stationery, and beautiful textiles.  I love the four seasons tea towels and mugs below, not to mention the postcard mugs!

The Pistachio Press booth was full of fantastic stationery, from birthday cards to calendars to a new notebook collaboration with designer Christen Maxwell.  They also snuck in the adorable new art print below that I absolutely love.

I’m really loving the canvas tote bags, wall art, and apparel from San Francisco-based Fluffy Co.  They also make adorable baby onesies!

I’ll be back with more from NYIGF a bit later!

  1. Nole, thank you for these round-up posts! I always feel like I’m an “insider” when you share these cool products, even though I wasn’t there myself! 🙂

  2. Love to see the Pigeontoe Ceramics display! I couldn’t love them more. Just recently worked with them on a styled shoot and their stuff is so beautiful up close. Thanks for the roundup!
