Instyle, Sydney 2012 finds

I went along to Kids/Life Instyle Sydney, a product trade show late last week where the latest and greatest are showcased. These are some of the people and things I saw...

I've been a long term fan of Brown & Sticky fabric greeting cards, so it was a great pleasure to meet Michael and have a chat about his work and see his new range of vintage postcard inspired cards.

A Happy Death was new to Instyle this year. They had one of the smaller stands, but their selection of artistic greeting cards made a huge impression. I picked up one of their beautiful letterpress business cards too.

Telegram Paper Goods and Elm Paper where doing a roaring trade! as was Earth Greetings with an Inalux Owl design wrapping paper.

I also loved Brainbow's work, some very cool kids shoes by Livie & Luca, & Milk & Soda, from Melbourne! Such lovely girls with really great handmade products!

Livie & Luca Kids shoes.

But the biggest and greatest was Greg Power, from Things By Bean, for taking the time to talk extensively to us about his greetings cards, exhibiting at the show, stockists in Melbourne and a bunch of other things excluding baking and chocolate.

Like most playgrounds, its hard to find people willing to share, so thank you Greg, You Rock!

We are considering exhibiting at the Melbourne show in August, if they will have us!
Stay tuned :)
