NYIGF

It's been a long 2 days but I am back from NYC after the most amazing trip to the NYIGF (New York International Gift Fair). It was amazing ,fun, successful, insightful and overall the best trip I have had for business. I met some wonderful Artisans and picked up a lot of information on new pieces for Kiss My Style. I can't wait to go through all of the brochures, line sheets and options for spring. Very impressive. They really had an amazingly talented group there!

Some of the incredible designers include My Perennial, Imooi, and Zen-Zen. I learned a lot about Fair Trade and to include it would be really great. Zen-Zen was the icing on the decision cake. They have beautiful home accessories, aromatherapy, totes and outdoor accessories.

My friend Sarah came with me and wants to spread the site to include baby & kids wear! She is a determined, intelligent, creative cat and will make an amazing addition to the KMS team. Her ideas are wonderful - wait until you see what she has in mind! After seeing the organic baby lines, handcrafted felt toys and accessories for tots, I can't wait to see what she has in store for KMS!

hey, i have a question.... where in PA would i go if i wanted to buy, say, a fake torso or head for the purposes of modeling knitted stuff on? i noticed that you use one in your etsy store and i figured since we live in the same glorious state that you could answer my question.

peace,

I actually got mine from Ebay b/c I couldn't find any local. She was affordable and was delivered to my door - everything you could want in a mannequin - lol!
