Another fantastic week in New York City has come and gone. The first half of the week was consumed with NY Now, the international gift fair at the Javit’s Center. On to a little Chez Chloe bricks and mortar business…
We stayed with my son in Tribeca and frequented La Colombe Torrefaction on his corner.
THE best mocha with hemp milk and pain au chocolats! I’d love to carry this dishware at Chez Chloe but it is made special for them
We walked miles, chatted, smiled, and learned at times more detail than we needed. Ollie and I discussed the ideal way to represent and sell your product. It’s not easy in those little cloth walled booths.
Here’s a new line for Chez Chloe- Vintage Girl Designs. Studio art, graphics and illustration combined with positive sayings and thoughts. I like it a lot.
Here’s a little R/X rated humor. This gal just watched people react as they come into her booth and saw this:) She’s got great flour sack towels printed with the funniest quotes. It took a few minutes to grasp the scene – the obvious and the subtle!
I can’t wait to make my order for new Tatine Candles along with their new liquid soaps in beautiful green recycled glass
Couleur Nature had some fun spring patterns out. I’ll be putting in an order in the next month as soon as we start getting just a little more traffic on the island
And from Deming WA, just a little north of us on the mainland is Moon Valley Organics. Can’t wait to get their organic herbal rubs in. I’ll be taking a little of this home straight away.
I went a little outside of the general store guidelines I originally set- merchandise that pertained to food in a direct or at least indirect way and picked up this classic wool blanket line- Faribault.
They were just too soft and beautiful to pass up. Here’s three of five different styles of throws we now have in the shop-
And Bayberry Naturals- also organic with botanical extracts… We are even going to try a few facial and hair care products! CAN”T WAIT.Next up will be the latter half of the week- a night spent traveling up the Hudson and the NYC eat and walk about…
cheers… xx wendy
