Our PAPAYA! teams are spread out all over the place this month. I've just returned from the Atlanta Market week for some digging and plotting for our boutique this year as well as staying up to date and checking in with our fabulous travel team that was there to share our PAPAYA! booth! This is cutie pie Gitti working her magic in at the show. Other teams are headed for Los Angeles this week for one of our favorite little shows at the Los Angeles Convention Center. It's one of my personal fave destinations because the "world style" division is one of the very best in the country for global imports that are authentic and rich. Amazing stuff and it's where our company began so it has loads of meaning. (sorry gang it's open to the trade only)
One of my personal favorite debut's this season is the introduction of our iphone cases! We have been working on this project for a very long time and are so excited to share the new babes with you very soon. They will be here in time for holidays. They come in iphone 4 and 5 in the same designs. And as always we had a chance to play a bit after our long days workin. Highlights included watermelon-chilli martinis, the Atlanta Aquarium and The Spice Market restaurant & Mali Thai in Virginia Highlands. And we even got to see this lovely inspiration-ista, L'Erin (Of Sisterfire.com) who has been a long time arts and internet friend via Artfest years back. A real treat to be sure and feels so good when you get to get offline with friends and into the real world together.
We've scouted the treasure and made a map of magic for PAPAYA! Living. But it feels so good to come home as always. Fueled by outter perspectives, it makes our sweet little town all the better. There's no place like home.
