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 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!
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'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.
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!
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.
