It feels like I planned this trip eons ago, so I’m excited that it’s finally here! I’m off to Atlanta this morning to spend the weekend walking the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market.

Later on from 5-7 there will be a party in the exquisite Daniel Richards showroom (Building 2, Ste. 1634) sponsored in part by Stationery Trends and Gift Shop Magazine (of which I am their newly instituted Trends Editor, yippee! ). If you’re trolling the halls and aisles of Americasmart, please come by, and if you see me, definitely say hi!

The image here was featured in the Winter Issue of Stationery Trends and kicked off our retail profile of The Merchant at Howell Mill — which happens to have been opened in Atlanta by Dan Collier, principal of Daniel Richards. I can’t think of a better way to encapsulate Hotlanta in a quick shot, and even if you are nowhere near Georgia, you’ve got to follow them on Instagram!

Since Daniel Richards features top-notch lines like, Curly Girl Design, Belle & Union, Betsywhite Stationery, Emily McDowell, Emily Ley, Ferme à Papier by Cat Seto, Hammerpress, J. Falkner, kate spade new york by Lifeguard Press, Mr. Boddington’s Studio, Moglea, 1canoe2, Rifle Paper Co., The Social Type, sugar paper and Thimblepress all under one roof, there’s sure to be plenty of newest releases hot off the press to drool over there, and do I hope you’ll join me!
