It was great to see our friend Stacy of Pancake & Franks at the show last night.
Some cute kids clothes from Vivi Kids.
We forgot who made these wood necklaces but we loved them!
Some really neat lego jewelry from emiko-o.
Stewey & Heather looking adorable in our booth last night. Visit us this weekend for great deals on wrapping paper, holiday cards, and more! We have a sale bin and we want to empty it! Details for Bazaar Bizarre here.
We have a special fondness for whoopie pies at Hello!Lucky. A couple of years back one of our printers, Aaron, had a bake-off with one of our designers, who shall remain nameless. Whoopie pies were the winner— but we wouldn’t say that there was any actual competition. Just fun and fabulous home-baked whoopie pies!
These dapper down-home delicacies, from WannaHavaCookie.com were mentioned in the New York Times, and most closely resemble the no-frills whoopie pies that Aaron crafted. The recipe, passed on from generations of Pennsylvania Dutch-ish lineage, is closely guarded among Aaron’s sylvan clan. But we imagine that the WannaHavaCookie whoopies are fairly close to the “real thing.”
Being a purist, Aaron would probably view these red-velvet variants as an abomination, but we bet they’d be pretty darn tasty.
Even a holiday whoopie pie with peppermint filling! We could go for that! WannaHavaCookie charmingly touts that whoopie pies would make great wedding favors. And we might just agree! But could they make a black-tie whoopie pie?
Shh! We’re doing an secret book exchange for our Hello!Lucky Holiday Party. Wonder if anyone will be giving/receiving any of these?
I can name of a few of us who might fancy this one:
Ooh hoo hooo… this one looks like a REAL treat:
ACK! Scary! But full of all sorts of wisdom, no doubt. Via Found in Mom’s Basement.
Cut paper Peter Pan!? What little girl (or never-grown-up little girl) could resist?
Oh! This adorable brooch! We want the suit to go with, too!
Sweet little swing! The Etsy seller, Tina Tarnoff, appears to be a San Franciscan, too. So much talent in this city!
