Shop & Shopping (With a giveaway at the end)

I have been so crazy lately... head focused on 3 months out, and feet trying to remain firmly planted in the present.... so many lists that I can't seem to keep track of them all. Somehow, someway it will all get done.
The transformation of the store has begun and it is finally starting to feel like it is mine. I can't wait until we start building out the kitchen and put the fixtures in place so we can figure out where everything is going to go. This is a picture I took last Friday when they were putting in the floor... I was there this morning and it is finished!! WhoooHoo!

In the meantime, I thought I would share some of the finds we had from National Stationery Show in NYC.

We visited the eeBoo and found some great games and activity gifts for Kids and Toddlers

Then we happened upon FASHION DOLLS and thought they were too cute to pass on... These pencil fashionista card and sticker sets would make a perfect favor, stocking stuffer, "I'm thinking of you" gift or fun little something extra 
For the older crew, we just loved these laptop and template cases by Miquel-Ruis ltd. We will stock a couple fun patterns and matching notebooks and journals. The perfect graduation gift or back to school purchase!

Choosing a line of cards to stock was mind-boggling! We went up and down the aisles and looked and looked, but eventually settled on two that we feel will meet the needs of most of our customers:
Curly Girl Designs, ltd

and Compendium, Inc - which not only produces great cards, but also a great line of gift books which make a great friend or hostess gift.

So now to the good part... the giveaway!
This is what you need to do:
  1. Go to our facebook page and "LIKE" us
  2. Respond to the blog and let us know what products you would like to see in SIMPLIFY Marketplace
  3. Do the above by 12pm EST on Wednesday May 25th
A random winner will receive 5 assorted greeting cards (as soon as our stock arrives in June... so you will need to be just a little bit patient!) You do not need to be local to enter this contest, but you must live in the United States!


  1. Test, Test, Test

  2. I'd like to see some fabulous bags, since I love bags - project bags, laptop bags, beach bags, every kind of bag!
