New Products for Spring

We just got back from a week in Atlanta for the huge Atlanta Gift Show at The AmericasMart. We have some exciting new stuff coming in the next couple of months! While we always are on the lookout for that product with real WOW! response, we set our sites on a few specific themes. Of course, holiday items for Easter, Halloween and Christmas were in the mix -- except for Easter items, we won't get those until summer or so. We looked for handcrafted items, Made in America (when possible) always draws our interest and, for summer, beach and shell themes.

These fantastic wire birds caught our attention in a flash! This company has a myriad of products, Made in America and quite unique. I love their disclaimer on being patient for delivery. It's just part of the handcrafted product experience.

Kelly O’Neal and the Design Legacy team are artists, designers, and craftsmen. No claim is made to have magical powers to make product mystically appear from a pile of camel dung, or mythic mode of transport. In other words, our little fingers will move as fast as possible to get your order completed. Peak season orders may require time allowance for nervous breakdown by designer / artist. While we do our best to control our own psyche, we cannot control customs brokers no more than we can predict an end to plagues of locusts.

With the movement toward reusable bags in our area, we thought these canvas totes were perfect -- functional, great images and ecologically friendly as well.
Pearl hearts & stars are handcrafted and have that vintage look. The hand hooks are just plain cool! We couldn't resist.
I guess we had a bird theme going as well. These sleek little wooden blackbirds are hacked into shape using machetes -- ouch! These are made in Honduras, as are the leafy votive candle holders below.
Out of Mexico come these alluring faces. Drawn and painted on ceramic, there is something magical about the eyes.More new finds on my next blog.
