One of my absolute favorite things about doing a trade show is meeting people. Most people who have visited me at NSS will testify to the fact that I'm extreeeeeeeemely chatty. Sometimes, I think I should rent an adjacent booth, keep it free of product, catalogs, graphics or any sales-y ness and just make a salon out of it. A lovely couch and seats, nibbles...just a fun place for friends to meet and share ideas.
Come to think of it, that's probably a really good idea.
I could have spent all day chatting with These Inspiring Ladies, who own the Rhinebeck, NY store that sells the items I've posted. I just love it when retailers have a strong point of view, that comes so vividly and excitingly to life through their item choices.
Anyway, I thought you would enjoy taking a refreshing trip to Paper Trail and picking out your own favorites.
Above - my standouts... Glitter letters, Horse-head bottle opener, A raincoat from their current exhibition of paper artwork, Christian Lacroix Notecards and Postcards (delicious to send, or to frame!)
