Last weekend, T.J, Mike, Jeff and I went to New York to place orders at the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF). We left at 5:30 in the morning (ugh) and made it to the Javits Center just in time for the opening of the show. I can't fully explain how giant the gift show is. With over 2,500 vendors, the NYIGF attracts 35,000+ buyers (hey, that's us!) each year. If you're not mentally prepared for it, it's quite overwhelming. But we love it! We placed orders with some awesome companies and I can not wait to get all the new products into our store... headphones, wallets, home decor, bags, iPad cases, sunglasses and more!
After we were finished at the show, we headed into the city to grab some pizza (supposedly the "best pizza on the planet", but I wasn't convinced), then got stuck in traffic forever, and eventually made it back to good 'ol Manheim.
Below are some iPhone photos of our trip that Jeff and I shot. Enjoy! And be sure to check the blog for updates about when new products arrive - or sign up for our mailing list on the sidebar. (----->)
