New York Gift Show Wrap Up

Last week was the New York International Gift Fair. After entering the show with mixed feelings (mostly because of our new downstairs location) I have to say, this was one of the best shows I've attended since I started at Houghton (minus the humidity and rainy afternoons).
Our new location included a bigger booth space, fellow publishers Workman, Rizzoli, and Random House, and aisles filled with optimistic buyers!

A couple highlights from the show...
Alan Richardson, of the famous cupcake duo behind Hello, Cupcake and What's New, Cupcake,Here demonstrating lo mein cupcakes and spaghetti and meatball cupcakes! demonstrates how easy and magnificent it is to make these quirky cupcakes!

The big seller...
Our new Send-A-Story display! (9780547480046 $199.60)
Includes our 4 new mailable stories. (I Like You, Won't You be my Kissaroo, Everywhere Babies, and No Matter What- only $4.99 each!)
