Mandy's Top 5 Picks from Market July 2012

Oh MY you guys!  This was one of my favorite markets in a while! The designers out did themselves this time!  We loved the new patterns (can anyone say Chevron?!?!!!) and the new products!  We are so excited for all of it to come in that we are basically stalking the UPS man every day!:)

Here are my Top 5 favorite things (it was really hard to pick just 5!):

1. Sterling Silver Finger Print Pendants and Cufflinks
Sterling Silver Cufflinks & Pendants will be available
I love this gift idea - so unique and personalized!  It will be a gift that will be cherished for years to come.  I guarantee that I will be making one of Kennedy's fingerprints!:)  We will have an event in early November to make the molds, but don't worry if you are out of town - we can ship you a kit so you can do it yourself.  More details to follow and if you would like to be contacted when the event is scheduled please comment below.

2.  Shwings
Shwings - to make your feet look Fly!
So Shwings are just FUN!  As soon as I saw them I smiled and knew we had to have them at Swagger!  Lots of colors are available - good for boys or girls.  I just gave a pair to my 5 year old niece and you would have thought I gave her $1 million dollars:) She loved them!

3.  Monogrammed Cuffs, Desk Calenders, Ipad Accessories & More!
From L - R: Cuff, Flask, Desk Calendar, Pencil Holder, Otterbox for Iphone, Ipad Cover
First off - the patterns are AH MAZ ING! Each item (there are over 20) is available in multiple patterns, color combinations, and fonts. Since I am addicted to Chevron, I have to let you guys know that they have a TON of chevron options from pastel to neon!  I love the jewelry cuff pictured above and at only $20 it is a great gift for just about anyone!  The flask would make a great bridesmaid gift.  I also love the desk calendar and pencil holder for teach gifts!  We have had a lot of people asking about an Otterbox for their Iphone and here it is!  There are so many more items that I haven't pictured including: Trays, E-reader Covers, Icebuckets, Children's Melamine Plates, Dry Erase Boards and more!  We will be able to start taking orders in the next few weeks!

4.  Cat Studio Glasses, Pillows and Towels
Frosted Glasses

Dish Towel

Hand Embroidered Pillow

I am so excited to have Cat Studio Glasses, Pillows and Dish Towels available at Swagger!  Each item comes in different States, Cities, Countries and Popular Regions & Resorts.  The idea is to collect the ones that have meaning to you!

For instance I want to start with a set of 6 glasses - New York State (where my husband and I were both born), Georgia (where my husband and I grew up and met), Florida Keys (where my husband proposed), Virginia (where my husband and I first lived after getting married), North Carolina (where we live now), and Hawaii (where we took our 1st anniversary trip and bought a time share).  Every time I use one of the glasses it will have several memories attached to it.

What a great wedding gift - you could choose the states where the couple were born, where they met, where they live - etc!  I also love this for realtor gifts!

5.  Initial Reaction Monogrammed Jewelry
Filigree Monograms in Pendants & Rings
As you guys know, I love a monogram and I LOVE the filigree design here.  These rings and pendants are available in sterling silver, rose gold, and gold vermeil.  I already have the ring coming in in my size and initials - woohoo!!!!:)

BONUS ITEM - Scout Bags!
So I couldn't choose just five:)  I have to mention Scout because they really out did themselves this time!  The patterns are so freaking awesome!  I can't wait to get the Chevron Weekender:)

I will let you guys know as everything comes in!!!
