The NYNOW show with Etsy Wholesale was simply fabulous and I feel so lucky to have been a part of it. It was such fun to get to know some of the other members of Etsy Wholesale and the Etsy Team who worked SO hard to make the event such a success! and I made a few wonderful new friends - you know who you all are! below is a gallery of photo's from the event taken by the talented LAURA PARDO. A HUGE thanks to everyone!
I am excited to announce that for the first time (since 2008 when I used to do the National Stationery Show) Foxy & Winston will be exhibiting at the Javits Center at the NYNOW Summer 2014 Show from August 16 - 20. I will be there with Etsy Wholesale along with 23 other vendors who are introducing their lines to the wholesale market with Etsy in the Handmade Pavilion Booth number 9000. Thanks to Etsy Wholesale for choosing me to be one of the lucky 24!!
I am pleased to be showing a few new products and designs along with some of my best selling originals in fresh new colors! My production is just about to kick off (the largest I have ever done) and is a few months away from completion, but a full range of samples will be shown at the event and orders will be taken there and shipped out on arrival later this Fall. Exciting times ahead, sneak peek below at a few of the new designs and products!
Over the past 6 months we have had some help from the wonderful people at the New York City branch of Small Business Services - known as SBS Neighborhood. In an effort to smarten up Sandy stricken main streets after the hurricane, at least 8 storefronts (and counting..) in Red Hook alone, have received grant money from this organization. We were lucky enough to be given this retractable awning (in my favorite color), Gooseneck lamps (to light the shop up at night) and a new window pane that needed to be replaced forever!. Our new look is really making a difference to the business, people that drive by are stopping in - thinking we are new in town and are shocked when we tell them that this month we turn 5 ..! (more on that later). SO, our sincere gratitude goes to the folks over at small business services for helping to shine a light (literally) on our sweet little store!
The Red Hook Flicks is something we all look forward to in the neighborhood each year and I usually get the fun job of designing the posters! Here is this years with the line up of movies to watch over the coming weeks!
As one of the sponsor's of this event I got to have my photo taken by Red Hook's very own Craig LaCourt Here is the Craig's favorite from from our fun session. I don't think I ever looked so menacing!
This week we are having our annual seconds sale. Hand screen-printing on (white!) organic canvas can be a messy business and yields plenty of mistakes! an ink splodge here, a dirty mark there - this is what constitutes a 'second' in our book. We have PLENTY of the following and all sales are FINAL :
Adult Aprons $25
Kids Aprons $15
Cushion Covers $12
The sale started today and will go on until everything is gone, so come on down to Red Hook if you get the chance.
I am SUPER excited to be here this Saturday 1 - 6 pm with my Foxy-Wares at West Elm - 1870 Broadway, New York 1-6pm please come and see me!! Here is a link to all the other vendors who will also be at the West Elm POP-UP
I am excited that Foxy & Winston is part of a great giveaway thanks to the gang at My Olive Box My sweet letterpress printed Hippo Birthday Card is just one of the cards that the winners receive in their Olive Box!

Thanks to My Olive Box for letting me be a part of the fun,
Been a bit too busy of late to post any news, so will simply catch up with some photo galleries of the new things we have been making around here - starting with some festive Robin and Popinjay Wreath flour sack towels that actually make pretty sweet occasional tablecloths for the season! They are made of 100% cotton in the USA and printed here in Brooklyn. They are just $15 each as our Holiday Special this year. So snap them up right HERE, I only made a hundred!
