Finding Inspiration at the New York International Gift Fair

One of the things we do at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia is develop, what we feel, are really good quality products for you to enjoy in your homes.  We look to many places for inspiration.  I, personally, am never without a camera and whenever I see an object that impresses me, I take a picture to share with our product developers and designers.  Of course, there are many trade shows that we attend both here in the United States and abroad.  Every season we scout gift shows, house wares shows, fancy food shows, and other interesting trade shows.  Recently, I was joined by Patsy Pollack - Senior EVP Merchandising and Kevin Sharkey - SVP, Exec Edit Dir, Dec & Creat Dir, Merch, as we strolled through the New York International Gift Fair held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.  This is one of the prime gift shows, featuring an astonishing display of the world’s most impressive gift, home, and lifestyle collections in one very well organized marketplace.
