CONSUMER TRENDS & NYIGF PRODUCTS THAT RELATE:
1 TREND: GREEN - Consumers want a greener lifestyle. It's easier than ever to find eco-friendly, affordable gift and home products.

Find it at NYIGF: American Chestnut wood, used by farmers over 100 years ago to build split rail fences, is recycled by Walnut Hill Crafts to create vases and other accessories. The first premium dog spa products, including shampoo, conditioner and body spray, are new from Lani - dig your dog. The products are all natural, hypo-allergenic, sulfate and dye-free, and made in the USA with luxurious natural oils and extracts.

2 TREND: FRUGAL CHIC - Consumers may not have the same spending power, but they haven't sacrificed a sense of style. These products offer current looks for less.

Find it at NYIGF: There's no need for boring black cell phone cases with the introduction of Baekgaard's line of affordable wristlets in 14 bright color combinations.

Removable vinyl wall decals from Surface Graphics offer an easy, affordable, personalized update to the interior décor of a home, office or dorm.

3 TREND: INSPIRED ARTISANRY - Purchases are made carefully by people seeking a meaningful story behind the products they buy. Artists are sharing the sources of their inspiration with responsive consumers.

Find it at NYIGF: Aid to Artisans is inspired by the principles of fair trade. They import decorative arts, textiles, home furnishings and fashion made by 400 craftswomen from India who support their families with their income.

Designer Jessie Driscoll's jewelry line, Made From Coins, is fashioned from the vast collection of silver coins inherited from her grandfather, who shared her love of jewelry-making.

TRENDS AND OTHER HOT TOPICS - Beyond the show floor, onsite seminars will provide up-to-the-minute information on color trends, business strategies in a down economy, marketing through social media, and "green" retailing opportunities.
