YES!! The sun is back out and in full effect on a beautiful day in NYC. A Friend/fellow Mama/Customer sent this picture of her son, the sweet Baby C sporting his Babiators he got at the shop- love it! Actually he’s not a baby anymore, he’s wearing the 3-7 year size and they look smashing. Babiators are guaranteed- they will replace them if they are lost or broken; you can’t go wrong with that! Babiators (available in 2 size 0-3 and 3-7)- $20.

It’s a rainy one today in NYC, but hopefully that will clear up soon so we can enjoy some summer weekend fun! Once the clouds clear we still have to contend with damp ground at our favorite parks. And nothing ruins a picnic like a wet butt, amiright? Luckily our picnic blankets are super soft on one side, and backed in water-proof PVC on the other. They’re perfect for the park or the beach, and roll up for easy carrying!

Crayola was close to brilliance when they started naming their colors after things like “mac-n-cheese” and “inchworm”. I’ll admit I loved searching through my box (120 count, of course) and reading all of the uber-descriptive and exotic names. But even though they were fun and descriptive, they were missing personality…they were missing sass!
Well my fellow color-lovers, despair not. While they’re not quite the chubby nostalgic crayon, these gorgeous colored pencils have got you colored! Er…I mean covered! Whether you’re feeling mellowy-yellowy or you’ve got a serious case of the moody blues, these Pencils with Personality are perfect for expressing yourself on the page. They even come in a slick metal case, perfect for simple yet stylish storage. Get them for yourself, or buy them for a friend! Either way, they are sure to be appreciated – unless you are a robot.

It’s me, Jess! Did you miss me? Did you even know I was gone?? While I was out visiting family in the verdant Midwest we got some amazing new products. I’m a bit of a craft beer fanatic (and spent much of my time in Indiana trying out local brews) so my favorite is the Stainless Steel Growler! I have a collection of growlers at home that I never use because I don’t want to haul around the heavy glass bottle. Stainless steel is lightweight and keeps the beer cold longer than glass, and the smooth swing-top lid will keep it fresher, longer. And if you are on the clumsy side there’s no worry of dropping and shattering your precious liquid gold. This would be a great Father’s Day gift, especially along with our new Beer Deck, or for any beer lover in your life!

Tops Malibu Surprize Balls $4.00 each.
Swimming in a sea of stationery and letterpress may be overwhelming, especially on an interns second day! Walking up and down row after row of stalls may also cause sensory overload even though everything is so fabulous. Yet despite the gorgeous and ridiculously adorable cards, prints and calendars, one stall definitely stole the show: Tops Malibu.
Featuring a range of products for party and play, Tops Malibu combines the beauty and simplicity of old-fashioned trinkets and treats while adding a creative and colorful twist making them a hit with adults and children alike. From their golden sparklers, to their candy colored pea-shooters, they truly are a unique and exciting company.
But of everything I saw at their dazzling display, my favorite Tops Malibu products have to be their Surprize Balls. Simply unwrap the colorful layers or to find an assortment of goodies, games, charms, candies and more! They’re perfect for parties and party favors, or if you just want to give yourself a little treat. We’re getting them in shortly, so be on the lookout!

It was another crazy fun day over here at the General Store– especially thanks to these fun girls. Sabrina (in the middle) called a few times this afternoon confirming we had Bananasavers in stock– and YES, of course we did. These lovely ladies were on a hunt for them and drove all over Manhattan looking for them (they were soo excited, they asked me to take their picture!). Luckily, thanks to asking around and google, they found us and they bought almost our whole stash (don’t worry, we will reorder tmrw). I carry mine everywhere and it is literally one of the most asked about products in the shop. Get one (or 10 or 20!) for yourself! Bananasavers (with carabiners)- $8.
