Work got in the way: NYIGF Part 2

So I completely missed out on the Pier 94 section of the New York International Gift Fair.  Totally bummed about it :(  But alas, the year is young and there are quite a few more trade shows to go.  I did manage to get a whole 20 minutes more in at the Javits center.  I recalled from the previous day spent that there were a couple of really cute nursery stuff I'd seen but had not explored.  And since I am expecting my first niece (got you there didn't I??? LOL) and was recently asked about the possibility of doing a nursery I thought I'd revisit that section again.  The stand out for me was the eco-friendly line of Merben International.  Beautiful eco-friendly materials such as felt are used to create beautiful rugs, blankets cushions and toys for the little ones.  My favorites were the super soft felt rug, the piglets made from left-over mama pig fabric and the toolbox  .
a soft and FUN experience for any little one!
piglets made from fabric of left over mama pig!
Tools and tool box made of felt! There was a saw, wrench...and the tool box can be used to carry other items too...so cute.
Another interesting find, more so for the metal craftsmanship, was These Creatures.  While I only captured this beautiful feeding station, there were other interesting things happening in the booth and on their website, including retail store fixtures and custom furniture capability.  Check them out.
great addition to the home of any decor sensitive pet owner
And that's it :(  I promise...more to come later this year when I visit Brooklyn Designs, AD Home Show and ICFF.
