Well hello purveyors of magical moments!
This business is sure keeping us on our toes. In the blink of an eye, a year and a half has passed since we last posted! And in that time, A LOT has happened! Again, we're loving every minute of building a company from the ground up! Okay, maybe not every single minute, like when the printer starts smoking and quits on us or delayed flights and overbooked hotels - but overall, we're grateful for the pursuit of happiness in this great country!
We've partnered with some excellent people and made the rounds to all the shows in Las Vegas, Dallas, and Atlanta while our stay-at-home moms are busy making our product line right here in the U.S.A. Now we're headed to the IHA show in Chicago which starts Saturday! The mothership show of them all!
We have new stuff to show you! All our major collections can be found on the frontpage of our website. Here are some beautiful pics taken by the best photographer in all of Kansas City, Mr. Isaac Alongi! Thank you, Isaac!
Our Team Spirit charms can be customized with your two team colors!
How fun is this? Our Madison Avenue (handbags) Collection matches our best-selling 5th Avenue (shoes) Collection!
Hurricanes with Fleur de Lis charms! Who's thirsty? Fleur de Lis just pops off the glass, they are gorgeous for year round use, even if you're not French or a Saints fan!
#Let's take a selfie! We're super excited about this Selfie Collection that allows you to personalize more than ever for a special occasion when you know the people attending! Brides love these for their wedding parties! Just add photos, logos, names, numbers, anything at all! LOVE! The possibilities are truly endless with this design because it's YOUR design! Email us with the way you used them at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post your pics on our fb page!
Also now available to wholesale buyers are our cute little oval name tags...so if you can't remember your charm, perhaps you'll remember your name?! Hopefully!
For wholesale inquiries, please email us at email@example.com or call us at 1-855-349-6127.
The Atlanta July 2013 Show was a great show for Going Stemless! We met some key contacts and new buyers as well as repeat buyers! We love you all! We worked hard and happy hour came a little sooner every day! We had a blast but by the end, we're so silly and slaphappy! We were beyond excited to see our elevator doors - isn't our graphic designer amazing!? And we had the chance to make a little demo video too! More videos to come! We feel very blessed to have the jobs we do. Thank you for letting us share our journey with YOU! Cheers!
We're back from the Dallas Market...Dallas - THE shopping mecca! What a fantastic show with amazing products, showrooms, and people! We were located in a new section of Gourmet Tabletop TEMPS on the 1st Floor of the World Trade Center. It was a gorgeous space next to the Gourmet Market and much easier access for buyers than taking the trek all the way up to the 12th floor with the other TEMP categories!
And O-M-G, our Going Stemless™ product line won the 2013 Gourmet Gold Award for Best Tabletop! What a spectacular night! We're still in shock and so excited! We celebrated with a bottle of Napa 29 Crue Cabernet! (Wishing we had reason for that bottle all the time!)
Next stop, Americasmart Atlanta! If you missed us in Dallas, we'll be exhibiting in Atlanta, July 11th - 16th, Building 2WW, Floor 3, Booth #916 (same spot as last time!) And as always, we take orders via email anytime: firstname.lastname@example.org Cheers!

We've improved our packaging! How do you like our makeover? We love it and hope you do too! Please bear with us as we transform our new look onto our website! Our collections are exactly the same and we have several new designer collections coming in 2013! Let us know what you think!
New York City was crazy fun! The trade show was massive and humbling, rows of innovation and creativity! Blew us away! As always, we have the best buyers! Our buyers are the most fun-filled people we've ever met, with such sunny dispositions and great senses of humor! We are incredibly lucky to be doing what we're doing!
Before & After pics! I think we arrived on the coldest day of the year! Cathy even made the news in Times Square with Cindy Hsu of CBS NEWS! They happened to be wearing matching coats and gloves and she was doing a piece on women's outerwear in the winter! Every day was an adventure, that started with Starbucks, of course...since there's one conveniently located on every corner. We LOVE the city that never sleeps!
