NY Accessory Show

I spent yesterday at the NY Accessory Show. It is so much smaller than the gift show and far less overwhelming. I shopped it looking for some new lines to add, specifically looking for fresh, new items. 
Not easy to do.
It seems that in this economy no one wants to take a risk introducing anything new or different. The manufacturers tend to go with what has worked and done well in the past.
Because of this a few companies really stood out.

Spartina
    449

Beautiful bags! Colorful and textural. Great price point.



Another company that has been around, but has really risen to the occasion is,
Nouvella

Socks, socks, and socks
Socks are going to be very important this Fall/Winter, especially knee socks and (believe it or not) over the knee socks. These rugby knee highs are the ultimate trendy/preppy item!
Perfect with Uggs or loafers. Warm and practical. They come in all the usual rugby combo colors. I predict I will be selling these by the boatload.
In two weeks is the NY Gift Show, can't wait!

I think I'm going to get a pair of those socks for my sister, they'd fit right in with her wardrobe and it'll save me a time and aggrivation at Christmas time, which happens right before her birthday.

Fun pictures from the header (I believe it is an old Town & Country Magazine photo) and lovely purses (nice change from designer bags!) and VERY COOL socks! Must have some of those!!

Speaking of NJ license plates, last time I was in Jersey I only found ONE custom plate and it was the person's name..... I do like your choices of plates, Deborah Hospital, Shore to Please, etc.....

Yes, what a small world indeed that Somer knows our Lizzie!!! xoxo

Ooooh, good finds Miss Player! We have been looking at the Spartina for several months now, they just have such beautiful things and such vibrant colors.

Nice job!
