Gift Show Treasure Found!

February 22, 2017

Yes, it is Gift Show time in the retail world! I traveled the short distance to the Los Angeles Wholesale Show as usual, hoping to find a new cat themed treasure to share with my customers.

Walking the isles, I will sometimes spot something out of the corner of my eye. Is that a cat design? Yes! So I stop and enter the booth area to see more.

This time it is a new line of baby onesies. This is an item that draws my interest as baby clothes are so darn cute! And it is a category I sometimes carry on my cat lover website, Georgia’s Gifts. This is a new company, started by a young entrepreneur and mom, Emily.  As often happens, she did not find the designs that she wanted for her new baby, so decided to design her own and the Baby Blastoff! fashion line was launched.

  • Luxuriously Soft! Made from bamboo/cotton fabric.
  • Original artwork by owner and creator.
  • Vibrant and fun colors.
  • Certified to be free of chemicals & substances.
  • Extra length for better fit & reinforced closure.
  • And did I say SOFT?

Hero Cats Will Save The Day!

August 14, 2016

Wherever I go I’m always on the lookout for new, unique & fun cat themed items to feature on my website or write about on my cat blog. On my recent adventure at CatConLA 2016 I discovered something brand new for me- Hero Cats of Stellar City comic books!

Hero Cats Comic Book Cover

How could I resist super hero cats! As I browsed the table full of the comic editions with colorful action packed artwork, I learned the backstory of the Hero Cats:

“The world changed forever when Galaxy Man & Cosmic Girl arrived in Stellar city.  Villains soon followed, bringing with them minions, henchmen, and other assorted threats.  While these super threats were being handled by the ever vigilant Galaxy Man and Cosmic Girl, it became necessary for the Hero Cats to deal to pick up the slack.”

Let me introduce you to the pack! Each one has a special talent for fighting crime and aliens and when you read the comics, you’ll also learn about their own special stories that brought them to where they are today.

Hero Cats

Ace is the team’s ever brave leader.

Cassiopeia is the recent addition to the team. She is a truly clever tabby cat who is able to read human writing. 

Rocket is the fastest cat in the world and might be from outer space.

Belle can read the human mind. There’s no fooling this feline. 

Midnight has a passionate dislike of criminals and is able to jump to extraordinary heights.

Rocco is the mountain of muscle who never loses a fight. His heart is big and true.

Bandit is ever the charmer and is skilled at covert operations.

The comic is told by Cassiopeia, the smart orange tabby, as she joins the team and soon proves her value to their mission.

The books are written by Kyle Puttkammer who was in attendance at the show so I was able to get an autographed copy of my purchase. The fantastic artwork is a collaboration of Marcus Williams, Ryan Sellers, Omaka Schultz and Briana Higgins and the comic is published by Action Lab Entertainment. The team has worked on other comics, including a spin off of the adventures of Midnight Cat.

I fell in love with the cast of Hero Cat characters and found myself rooting for them during their daring  escapades. This is such a fun book to escape into for a fantasy of a world where cats have super powers. Being a new reader, I bought Volumn 1 which includes the first three issues of the comic books. I plan to add to my collection and hopefully own them all!

CatConLA – Purrfect Success!

June 24, 2015

The dust has finally settled after the big event and I think most attendees would agree it was a huge success. I might be a little slow with my wrap up but now I’m able to report some final tallies from the show.

First, though, I have to say how amazed I was at the turn out. I went on Sunday, waiting in a long line before the doors opened and heard it wasn’t as crowded as it was on Saturday! There was excitement & expectation in the air and general goodwill feelings towards fellow cat lovers.

The crowd just getting started on Sunday.

Inside it took a few minutes to get my bearings and decide which way to go first!  After getting my free cat tattoo and green cat ears headband,  I felt “official” and ready to enjoy the activities. I took a quick tour of all the various vendors, bypassed the long, long line for cat adoptions (we already have a rescue kitty) and then got in line for my first of several seminars.

All day line for cat adoption.

A line all day for the cat adoptions.

The selection of cat product vendors offered almost anything you could think of!  Very easy to rack up the debit card charges. (I should consider having a booth myself next year). The Pusheen cat booth kept a line most of the time, a new “robotic” kitty, Zoomer, promises to be the next BIG thing, and of course, the booth for CatConLA memorabilia was popular. Who could leave without their official t-shirt or mug? (I know I couldn’t!)

Another huge bonus at the show was Lil Bub. His owner, Mike Bridavsky, brought him out to his product booth for a photo session and the “paparazzi” went wild! I tried to get close but wasn’t quite aggressive enough to fight my way in : )  Only one blurry shot to show for it.

I mentioned at the beginning that I had some final tallies from the show –

  • The attendance was unexpected, more than 10,000 over the weekend.
  • About 70 cats and kittens were adopted. Thank you Best Friends Animal Society.
  • $35,000 was raised and donated to FixNation and Lil Bub’s Big Fund.

I truly enjoyed the day at CatConLA. It was fun being immersed among cat lovers, all free to express their love of all things cat!  A big thank you to Susan Michals, creator of the event and Karn Myers, founder of FixNation. Also for all the wonderful speakers at the seminars and the Meet & Greets.

I look forward to next year. But I have a feeling it will have to be moved to a much larger venue!!

Say “Aloha” To New Tiki Cat Merchandise Coming Soon to Georgia’s Gifts!

February 5, 2015

January is a favorite time of my year because of the wholesale gift shows that give me a chance to discover some new cat lover goodies. And this time I found something brand new to bring to you!

Tiki Cat Art

Being a fan of cats and also Hawaii, I fell in love with the Tiki Cat art by Brad “Tiki Shark” Parker. His unique style is a result of a comic book illustration background combined with idealized Polynesian and Tiki culture art. Tiki art is referred to “low brow” art (as opposed to “fine” art) because it references pop culture. Low brow art has grown in popularity on the West Coast art scene in recent years.

Of course, my favorite of Parker’s artwork is this stylized cat playing the ukulele against a vividly colored sunset and with a tropical drink nearby.

 

To carry out the beach scene, you’ll soon be able to purchase beach towels along with “slippers”, the Hawaii term for flip-flops, on my website. Other fun items will include Tiki Cat mugs and magnets.

This is definitely a new look to add to my selection of cat lover gifts and décor for my customers. I am so excited to bring the artwork of Brad Parker to you and hope you love it as much as I do!  Mahalo and Aloha

 


Wacky, Whimsical and A Little Bit Wonderful Cat Ornaments

July 31, 2014

On my ongoing search for unique and fun cat themed items for my website, I recently discovered these delightful, eco-friendly cat ornaments.  And I love that they are designed and created by an artist following her dream.

Jeanne Stern is an artist living in north Georgia. She specializes in folk and decorative art, inspired by the plants and animals she observes in the woods, lakes, rivers and farmland near her residence. I, of course, immediately focused on her wonderful cat designs.

Each one is handcrafted from reclaimed wood and recycled components, helping to save our landfills.  They are a substantial size at 3 1/2″ x 4″ x 5/8″ with a cotton cord for hanging.  Although they are called “ornaments” they are perfect for any decorative idea. Hang on a hook in any room for a touch of whimsy, hang near your cat’s bed or feeding area or on a door knob into the cat’s area. Another idea is to add it to a gift basket or on a present for a cat lover. It will make a great keepsake!

These ornaments will be available in 4 colors:  Black, Grey, Orange and Yellow.  Remember, being handcrafted, each one will be slightly different with its own personality.  What a unique gift to give to a cat lover! You’ll want to stock up for birthdays, holidays and “just because” days.

Arriving soon at Georgia’s Gifts!  If you are interested in another color, please let me know and a custom order can be done. Let me know what you love about these new cat ornaments.

 

 

 

 


Ivory Cat Tea Towels- Functional & Beautiful

January 25, 2014

As I’ve mentioned in a former blog, I’m always on the lookout for new cat kitchen tea towels.

Recently I found these beautiful cotton towels featuring the artwork of English artist Lesley Anne Ivory.

Tabby On Rug Cotton Tea Towel

Tabby On Rug Cotton Towel

I’ve seen her work before but I had forgotten how wonderful her cat art is!  She does exquisitely realistic cat images on highly detailed backgrounds, such as carpets, mosaics and more. For instance in the above art the tabby cat is on a colorful patchwork rug.  On the one below, the cat rests on a peacock designed rug.

Cat Cotton Tea Towel "Meow Meow"

I wanted to learn more about the artist, so I started searching.  I found that Lesley Anne Ivory is a very private person! Here are a few facts I discovered about her:

Lesley was born in 1940 in Bedfordshire, England.  She studied at various art schools and earned the National Diploma in Design. She specializes in portraits of her own cats and those belonging to her family and friends.  She exhibits in London and New York and has illustrated successful cat books plus more than 40 children’s books. You can find her cat artwork on calendars, note cards and many other gift products. Below is one of only two photos I found of Lesley…

You can find these cat kitchen towels, Tabby On Rug and Meow Meow, on my website.  They measure 19″ x 29″ and cost $10.50 each.  I plan to add more of her cat art on other products and hope you love her work as much as I do.  What item would you like to see illustrated with her cats?
