Today is the last day of our Dallas Market Preview. Starting Monday, you’ll have the coverage of the show with more great products.
Raymond Crawford has a delightful new pink flock tree, an addition to his small tree series. It’s chock full of ornaments and is adorable. I suspect I’m fond of it because my room tree as a child was a pink flock one. I decorated it with origami ornaments I made. Very 60’s! Scott Church has lots of lovely new oval ornaments. In addition to the pelican I mentioned yesterday, there is a skating goldfinch and a tiger with a small tree and Santa hat.
Pippin has some new fives including five blue-and-white plates with oranges as well as five ice cream cones. There is also a new 12 with a dozen pomegranates. I just love the color of these, it’s so unusual. Decorations has a new series of canvases inspired by the Art Deco designs on the Orient Express. They are on 13 mesh and are 14″ square. They are typically Deco combinations of florals, leaves, and geometrics.
