New York International Gift Fair: Part One

Oh, boy, did I see a lot in 5 hours at the New York International Gift Fair (NYGIF). And it was very exciting that some vendors I spoke to had heard of MyMomShops! Here is my first batch of finds:

Adorable handmade felt accessories and home decor by the talented young Jen Hopwood (a former NYC public schoolteacher) at My Perennial. Love the initial pillows, felt animals appliques that snap on and off of children’s tees, and pretzel purses.


Gorgeous hand-knit toys by I golfini della Nonna (I have featured them before at the blog but never seen them up close and personal). Dig the play food and Tic Tac Toe Set! Handmade by women in Bolivia.


A feast for the eyes at colorful, non-toxic toy manufacturer Haba; one of my fave websites Oompa carries a great selection.


I was excited to visit Sozo, a brand I had recently stumbled upon. They made colorful infant/toddler clothing with thick yummy cotton. The clothes run nice and roomy, too.


Fun, tongue-in-cheek office supplies and books by Knock Knock. You can take a joke, can’t you?


Cool threads by hip designer Appaman. Love the girls’ tunic dresses and the number tees.


Like what you see? So did I! Stay tuned for more of my finds from NYIGF.

p.s. Speaking of New York, go Giants!!! There was cheering and yelling on the streets here almost all night long. I’m not a sports fan, but even I have to say it was very exciting.
