Baltimore ACC show

Well, another ACC show is behind me and this one was much better than I anticipated. I attribute it to having mostly new designs, some new display elements, and good help in my booth. It's nice to know that people were actually out there shopping.

Dwell likes my Mobiles!

If mobiles are meant to stimulate baby brain function, this simple, modern design from Julie Frith should make for some inspired little ones. Totless? Try hanging it in the living room, where it will just as easily delight the adults.
