Spring Sale!

It must be spring if you see this sign...

Our Spring Sale kicked off this weekend, and will continue until Sunday, March 25th. Why do we have this sale at this time every year? To make room for the goodies that are coming in!

Every year at the end of January, we attend the NY International Gift Fair at the Javits Center. It's a big show but we only find a few things there. Just a small portion of the show fits in at Whimsies because of our high standards (i.e. We're picky!). In order to find our usual unique, handmade, original, and often up-cycled goodies we drive to Philadelphia for the Buyers Market of American Craft (in February). Philadelphia is a fun city to visit anyway but to wander aisles of handmade goodness and picking the best for you is a real joy. We visit old friends and meet new crafters and artists that we hope you'll like too.

So, help us empty our shelves of the sale items so we have room to unpack the boxes of merchandise we have coming in... new pottery, new jewelry, new stuffed animals, glassware, sushi sets, and more! Stuff that made us say, "Wow, I've never seen anything like this before!"

See you soon,
the Whimsies crew
