I’m back with more from the January 2012 New York International Gift Fair! Â In case you missed them, you can find the first three recaps from NYIGF right here. Â First up for today, the always fab Aesthetic Movement rep booth, where I caught up on the latest gorgeous letterpress stationery from Kim of Austin Press and swooned over the amazing ties from Forage. Â I also totally fell for the barware and flasks from Izola â€“ I can’t wait until the cocktail shakers become available for purchase next month!
Izola (they also had awesome soap packaging)
Next up, the fun textiles and stationery from Girls Can Tell out of Philadelphia. Â From coasters to notebooks to onesies, this booth was full of awesome and quirky pieces. Â I particularly loved the drinking glass and cookware tea towels!
Next up, the lovely ladies of Albertine Press, May Day Studio, and Carta, Inc. Â I always love the beautiful cotton ribbons and twine from Carta, Inc., and this year Angela is also introducing a beautiful collection of vintage international postage stamps (love!). Â Kelly from May Day Studio had gorgeous journals in beautiful new patterns, while Shelley from Albertine Press just introduced a city-theme notebook collection.
Last up for today, one of my favorite new finds from the Handmade section of NYIGF â€“ a New York-based company called Ortolan. Â I fell in love with the graphic black and white chevron blanket below, but the entire collection of napkins, pillow cases, and reclaimed wood mirrors is seriously gorgeous.
Check back tomorrow for the final posts from the January 2012 New York International Gift Fair!
