Third Day of Market - Tech & Hostess Gifts

We were all over the place yesterday!  Buying all kinds of different stuff we've never had before.

We especially liked the cool "i" stuff.  Okay - so I'm addicted now that I have my new ipad 2 - and I love all the accessories!  And like I told my husband - you HAVE TO have some of these accessories to protect your investment (screen protector, sleeve, etc) so why not make them cute - right?!  Right!;)
I love these earphones - and not just because they are cute!  There is a mighty magnet on the back so you can attach it to your clothes when you are working out, in the car - basically wherever you are that you don't want your earphones tangled up in your arm!  And the wires go into the little circle thing when you aren't using them so they don't get tangled up.  AND they have a mircrophone so if you are listening to music and a phone call comes in you can take it.  Pretty cool - huh?!  We thought so!  Oh yeah - and it comes in lots of colors!

All the earphones have matching ipad protective screen covers and iphone cases.  The best thing about the cover is that it is front AND back so you can also use it as a stand - these people were really thinking!

We also found some really great food items - we love dips and drink mixes for hostess gifts! 

These dips were our favorite!  Not only do they taste great but the packaging is awesome!  (And it is all about the presentation you know:))  We also purchased drink mixes and some dessert mixes like chocolate fudge and caramel dip - yummy!  Just writing this makes me want to go back today and get another sample!

Of course we got a lot more than that, but it is 8 am and time to head back to market to get MORE!  Can't wait to tell you about it tomorrow!

Market Day 2 - Function Gifts alert!

I am so tired that I am going to have to make this quick!:)  Make sure to check out our facebook page during the day - I am posting as I buy! 

Today I found a ton of stuff I didn't know I was looking for!  I love it when that happens!:)  Super cool, super functional items!  I think you guys will love them too!  Here are a few items:

I love this bag!  I think it is going to make an awesome Christmas gift!  The top is a normal bag and the bottom part (under the zipper) is insulated!  How cool is that? It comes in several patterns.

Zebra tools - need I say more?  Love it!

This is a cutting board with a cheese knife - so cute!  I love the zebra again:)!

This was one of my favorite things I've found so far - it is a cuff that can go anywhere from your coffee mug to your wrist.  It can hold keys, your ID, cash - basically anything you want to have when you are on the go.  I think this is the perfect gift for any runner in your life!  If you run (or walk) you know you are always thinking - where do I put my key?!  Now it is easy to keep up with and out of the way.  And the cuff is really comfy - the back of it is stretchy so it will fit any arm!

So how do you like the functional gifts I found?

First Day of Market July 2011 abd we are loving Mud Pie!

We love this time of year!  It's like Christmas in July! 

Today we spent a good deal of time previewing AND buying (of course!) Mud Pie's Fall 2011 Collection!  We are so excited because they got into more clothes and accessories for ADULTS!  We all loved the bathing suit cover ups this spring and they didn't disappoint with the fall collection of dresses, scarves, purses and more!  I really think they out did themselves when designing the fabrics - THANK YOU MUD PIE!

Here is a sneak preview but more pics will come when everything arrives at Swagger!

Let's start with scarves - how cute are these?!  I love the colors, flowers AND the key hole design to keep the scarf in place!  Of course there are matching gloves too:)

Cross-body bags are so popular right now and I loved this envelope shape - great for going out or shopping at the mall!

I love a new pair of slippers and look how cute these are!  But seriously - how am I supposed to decide which ones I want?

I just bought an ipad 2 for this market so you know I couldn't pass up these fabulous covers!;)  I looked all over for a cool cover before arriving in Atlanta and I couldn't find anything this cute, so you know I was excited to find these!  I can't wait until they come in! (And they come in most of the same colors of the slippers above - I guess I'll have to get them to match - ha!)

And finally for the new Swagger clothing addition  - this super cute green dress!  The drape of this fabric is great and I think it will look good on all body styles!

So what do you think?  Are you as excited as I am?!  Let me know your thoughts!

We are so excited that the Trollbeads World Tour has now landed in the good old U.S.of A.!!!!  Come by Swagger Gifts to see all these beautiful and highly collectible beads!

Wave the Grand Ol‟ Flag in colors of red, white and blue during your tour throughout the United States of America. Visit a welcoming land filled with diversity, love and the pursuit of happiness.

Visit the Nation‟s Capital, Washington, D.C., home of the iconic White House, where history is made.

Star Spangled Bead - Stars shine bright through fireworks of red, white and blue, the inspiration for Francis Scott Key‟s “The Star-Spangled Banner,” a poem written in 1814 that now stands as America‟s national anthem.

Pursuit of Happiness - From apple pie and baseball games, to building a foundation and following a the United States, "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" are considered unalienable rights. The smiley face has been a pop culture symbol of the pursuit of happiness since the 1950s. The graphic was further popularized in the 1970s in Philadelphia by brothers Bernard and Murray Spain. Have a happy day!

Old West - Race through the desert, gaze upon purple mountains under spacious skies, let the wild spirit of the land of opportunity fill your soul. As the American Old West passed into history, legends of this region took firm hold in the imaginations of Americans and people the world over.

The White House - More than just the residence of the American Presidents and their families; throughout the world, the regal white pillars and unique architecture of The White House are recognized as a symbol of the United States. After surviving fires in 1814 and 1929, The White House symbolizes strength and perseverance.
