Looking Back: The Atlanta Trade Show

We did this Atlanta Gift Show a little different than usual.

We drove from Nashville to Chattanooga and stayed there, just the four of us, for the night. We have all been working so much and needed a rest and just a fun hang out!! It was like a little day vacation.

We stayed at the {really beautiful} Read Hotel. It’s such a great cozy place, I highly recommend it! They have a pool and room service; our little buddies favorite!

It’s close to everything in Chattanooga too.

We rested, ordered dinner and laughed a lot! We went out for dessert though.

The next morning we hit the road to Atlanta. We got there, dropped our buddies off and got right to work setting up. We set up Sunday through Tuesday and the show started bright and early Wednesday.

It’s such a grueling job- getting set up and then to actually work and help each and every customer. But, helping the wonderful customers we see each and every show and meeting so many new ones always makes it worth it!

Two of the days, our littles had to be with me. And let me tell you, they were so amazing! They helped all of us, were so patient and wonderful. I can never thank them enough for just simply being them. 

We launched two brand new entire collections, one is our children’s line Breathless Paper Co. Junior, added beautiful handmade special bowls and new cards throughout our lines! 

Stay tuned for a feature on all our new goods. 

Show Recap: Atlanta Gift Show

We're veterans at this whole "trade show" thing now. But that's not to say we don't love it just like we did the first time (or that it's any less tiring...)

This year though, one of our favorite parts was getting to share the space with some wonderful companies, and exploring some of the other incredible brands on our floor and others. I'm pumped to share with you some of what we found... because you're seriously missing out if you don't hop on board with these makers.

All-natural beauty goods are all the rage right now, and I'm here to tell you that Green + Lovely is absolutely nailing it. Her responsibly-made beauty and skincare products are my new favorite thing. I got the detox facial grains wash and a clay mask. Both are to die for. My top pick, though, is the bee herbal cream. It works unbelievably well and it is not greasy (which is a BIG deal!) I have definitely found my new skincare line!

  • Other brands in our space:

  • Jackson Morgan Creamed Whiskey for happy hour (salted caramel flavor) Everyone loved it, and was looking up the closest place to grab their own bottles.

  • White's Elixirs Moscow Mule mix is always so fun to serve during happy hour, too. Customers love his mixers, and we do too!

Pie Provisions:

Pie Provisions is a new company that one of my maker friends and I saw in the "Gourmet" section of the show. Their branding is fabulous and their product could not be cuter! They put everything you need to cook a gourmet pie into the cutest package. This is my new favorite gift idea!

Bogg Bag:

I had heard about Bogg Bags before, but finally got to checked them out at the market. The company shared a booth with one of our dear friends and collaborators, Beer Greetings! These are totally fantastic and I will for sure be getting one ASAP.

Heirloomed:

Heirloomed's newest "Simple Blessings" line is one I have fallen in love with and I cannot wait to get my kids in a new apron! 


Really, the best part about this July Market was the launch of our new sister company, Heartward. My business partner and friend Heather and I worked so hard to get things up and running, and it was so fun to see how much everyone loved it. I cannot wait to start shipping all the orders out. 

Thanks to all who stopped by our booth... we seriously appreciate each and every one of you.

Atlanta Gift Show & July Card of the Month

It's that time of year again!

This week, from the 11th to the 15th, Breathless Paper Co. will be at AmericasMart for the July gift show.

This year is extra special, though, because we're bringing along with us our new company, Heartward, for their wholesale debut! They'll be showing off their kids tees, line of cards, small-batch jewelry and patches.

They'll even have this month's Card of the Month:

Seriously -- you don't want to miss it. Every single piece is made with so much heart, and it shows.

We'll also be showing our new card lines and collaborations. We're so proud of them and we can't wait to get you guys all stocked up. Come visit us to chat and check out what's new! 

Find us in the West Wing, building 1, High Design booth #614.

See you soon!

 

Trade Show Recap: From ATL to NY

As summer comes to an end, so does the summer trade show season. We’ve been from the south to the north at shows in Atlanta and New York City.

Trade shows are hard work, but they’re so worth it. We’re excited to share with you some highlights from our time in both cities.

We had such a blast showing off our classic designs and our newest creations (that we're totally head over heels for). Not to mention, we got to meet tons of retailers and amazing makers from across the country. But just because this trade show season is over, doesn't mean you can't get your orders in, too! Reach out if something catches your eye: breathlesspaperco@gmail.com

Thanks for supporting Breathless Paper Co. & makers everywhere. 

XOXO,
