Let's GO! National Stationary Show 2015

Hello, Gorgeouses!  YES, the incomparable National Stationary Show is on the horizon ~

The National Stationary Show is THE annual event for professional paper enthusiasts.  To-the-trade, only, and hosted in the heart of New York City, this is the event that stationers, party planners and trend watchers love to attend.

Many of our traditional vendors will be showing off their newest introductions ~

Remember, my New England friends, you can still book one of the few remaining 'round trip tickets available for May 17 - 20th on Amtrak's Acela train from Boston's South Station.  NSS' {FREE} shuttle will whisk you from Penn Station and deliver you directly to the Javits Center's front door.  

** Be sure to congratulate New Hampshire's Jenn Ski, is a finalist for a Louie Award! We've been featuring her work for years on NEPC, and we're THRILLED to see her major talent acknowledged by such a huge honor. **
