On Friday I went went to the LA Gift to do some good old-fashioned scouting. I came across some good stuff (most of which I'm saving for some magazine work), but check out a few of these snaps of things to come. Above is a nautical-inspired table tennis set by Alice Supply Co.
Yellow Owl Workshop badminton stamp set (cool!)
The Original Lil' Popper, a classic toy from the 1950s, is being brought back!
Cardboard Design's cardboard tee pee (!!!!)
Custom and vintage route signs from old trolleys and double-decker buses from the UK.
I drooled over this vintage Suzani fabric for a while, and should have grabbed it while I had the chance!
