Best of Atlanta Gift Show – January 2013

If I can find one or two inspirational new product lines at the Atlanta Gift show, then I can almost recover from being gouged by our local parking vendors.  This season the wine flowed like beer – or something like that – the food was actually palatable and plentiful,  AND there were several original new designs that eased my pain somewhat.  I still ran over a parking cone when I pulled out of the lot just to even the score, but I let the valet keep his toes.   Enjoy a look at some of my favorite new products on their way to market in the very near future!!!
