In a New York Minute

Earlier this year Julie and I went to New York to check out children's wear trade shows and find out which would be the best fit for Sugarcane. It was a lightning quick trip but I'm glad I did the research before deciding. No photos are allowed at trade shows, so here are a few non-trade-show outtakes from our short trip.

At Playtime we met the incredibly kind and lovely Lulu, owner of Allegria Boutique. She invited us to check out her shop. Luckily, Williamsburg was on our itinerary and we were able to pop in after brunch at Cafe Mogador. Her shop was so dreamy.

Sugarcane will be exhibiting at Playtime in less than two months. It'll be a family affair in August with Ricci and Nectar helping me staff the Sugarcane booth. Wish us luck!
