Everyday Grace visited the National Stationery Show (NSS to many) this year to check out everything to do with stationery and design.  The annual show took place from May 19-23  in  New York City. The show is located at the Javits Center just a few minutes from the iconic Central Park and stunning views of the Empire State building and Manhattan’s beautiful skyline.

This years show was brimming with color, texture and creative design. Exhibitors showcased their brand and products in anything from a standard curtain booths to extensive backdrops that felt like you were in their studio and not at a trade show. The pride of artful design, colour and innovative products ranged from traditional to whimsy fun, cutting edge flair and timeless elegance across many categories. Whether it was a first time exhibitor or a seasoned veteran, the excitement from many people in their booths was infectious.

How amazing are the patterns on these boxes from Smock?!

It took us over two days and some very tired feet and backs to cover the show, but we are glad we did! Everyday Grace is proud to say we made some great business alliances and found some truly inspiring people to work with, and bring our customers the best of what the market has to offer. Over the next few weeks you will see a number of very interesting and creative products coming to the Everyday Grace shop so please check back.
