Twice a year, the NY Now Retail Renaissance gift show visits the Javits Center, giving retailers opportunities to see over 2,300 brands of products. Home decor, bath and beauty products, stationery, accessories, jewelry, and specialty food items are featured from all around the world. It is a convenient way for us to browse new brands, sample items, and reconnect with our established vendors.
This week, we walked many miles for several days, winding through the vast array of products, trying to avoid collecting too many heavy catalogs and failing.
We sniffed more lines of candles and home fragrance diffusers than we can remember and sampled so many hand lotions, body creams, and balms that we we’ve been light-headed and shiny for days. Oh, the things we suffer through!
Now that we are back, we are poring over catalogs, calculating minimum order prices and wishing we had a million dollars so we could bring all these fabulous products we found to Croton!
Here are only two dozen of the pictures we snapped!
