A Very NYNOW Summer Weekend

We’re officially all settled back into the groove of things after getting back from New York. Since we couldn’t bring all of you to the big show with us, we thought we’d give a quick photo recap of Cardtorial’s new home at the show with Karen Alweil Studio!

Here’s our spot! We’ve got a selection of bestsellers across all categories up on the walls (which is never easy to decide).  We always come with new products so what you see on the walls is only a portion of our entire collection.    My favorite part? The oh-so-cute (and also oh-so-fragile) hot pink laser cut category signs!

I only snapped a few pics on my last day there. Typical Yvonne.

Loved meeting Rare Rabbit — the rabbits love wood too and specialize in wood jewelry + lifestlye goods. It was my first time seeing their stuff — they are an Aussie company making their way to the states.

What a cool way of showing off their knobs.

Beautiful bedding & pillows from Allem Studio.  I spotted them in the showroom and couldn’t get over those pillows!

Overall, our new NYNOW home was really beautiful and eye-catching. Karen’s team does a killer job with display and merchandising.  There were lots of colors, shapes and styles housed in one gorgeous spot — it looks effortless.

Special thanks to the teams behind Karen Alweil Studio and NYNOW — it was an awesome show!! And thank you to everyone who came by in New York. We hope you had as much fun as we did!

We’re thinking about doing a post on the differences of doing a trade show with a showroom / rep versus doing one on your own.  What aspects would you be interested in learning about (if any)?

Also, Etsy Wholesale was a new section that debuted this show.  It was in the hallway from the main pavillion to the handmade section. It looked KILLER and I was so impressed with how that came together, too. I hope it went wonderfully for all the vendors there. 🙂
