The best part of attending gift shows is catching up with your favorite exhibitors. I met D. Bryant Archie years ago and I always look forward to seeing her and her gorgeous textiles. What you can't experience at home is how fabulous they all feel. The alpaca throws are butter soft and the embroidery adds just a touch of decoration. Don't even get me started on the beautiful colors. And to top it all off, the textiles give jobs to artisans in Peru. It doesn't get any chicer.
