Chukar Cherries - handcrafted confections right from Eastern Washington - see our complete product line at The San Francisco International Gift Fair, August 4-7, 2012 - Booth: 1454

Since 1988 Chukar Cherries has been transforming Pacific Northwest cherries into delicious confections, sauces, and pantry specialties. At the Las Vegas Market this year, Chukar will highlight their elegant line of chocolate-covered cherries. They will also feature chocolates for wine pairings, dried cherries and berries, fruit and nut mixes, and a unique selection of dessert sauces, preserves, and savories.

Chukar will be sampling their full product line at The San Francisco International Gift Fair Booth: 1454, so please stop by and say hello to Teresa and the Chukar team.

Chukar handcrafts their confections in Eastern Washington, in the heart of one of the Northwest's premier cherry growing regions-ensuring they always offer nothing but the Best of Nature, Best of Chocolate®. All Chukar products are 100% natural and contain no preservatives, sulfites, trans fat, gluten, or artificial ingredients.

Life at Chukar
Chukar is now in its 22nd year and has a flagship store in Prosser as well as the Pike store, which introduces millions of customers to Chukar every year. The original orchard has changed hands, freeing founder Pam Montgomery, to focus on what she loves-coming up with delicious, innovative products for her customers. Her vision remains simple:

• Use only local fruits and the finest domestic ingredients
• Combine them in delicious and creative ways
• Utilize just-in-time manufacturing practices so everything is made fresh and ships fresh
• Listen to our customers and coworkers
• Grow in a rational manner
• ...and have fun

Our Priorities
First of all, your well-being is our priority. That's why everything we sell is 100% natural and nearly all our products are certified KOF-K kosher. We dry our fruits without sulfites or preservatives. We're also concerned about our environment and community. We partner with local growers and cultivate relationships with orchardists in our region. By giving local farmers an outlet for their products, we help sustain our community.

Freshness is of critical importance to us. Most everything we sell is made in our factory in Prosser, WA. Our manufacturing practices ensure that everything is made just in time to be delivered fresh to you. In the Chukar Kitchen we never use preservatives or ship chocolate that has languished on a warehouse shelf.

Finally, we're concerned about giving back. This year we launched Social Responsibility Gifting to integrate giving into our day-to-day business. When customers purchase select products, we donate 100% of the net proceeds to causes that are important to us. Chukar supports the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (bcrfcure.org), Autism Speaks (autismspeaks.org), and Wallowa Resources in Enterprise, Oregon (wallowaresources.org).

Visit Chukar Cherries for a sampling their full product line at The San Francisco International Gift Fair Booth: 1454. For additional information and to see their complete offerings visit us online at chukar.com

Robin Goodfellow Designs creating elegant jewelry - The perfect gift for that special person in your life - See us at The San Francisco International Gift Fair, August 4-7, 2012

According to Robin Satterthwaite, as the director of a children's ballet company, I am inspired by music, dance, nature and Shakespeare. My creations are designed to capture a magical feeling with pieces that dace around your wrist and neck on hand-twisted wire to link the steps in a carefully choreographed ballet. My jewelry features a cast of rhinestones, pearls, glass, crystal and metal beads. Many of my customers not only wear my jewelry but display it as a work of art. In my jewelry, I hope you feel as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside.

In a Nutshell
We have found a special tree! A mystical seedling that was planted at the birthplace of a fairy child. A beautiful creation that we are delighted to share with you. "In a Nutshell" is designed to create the feeling of finding something magical. You have to crack the nut to find the hidden treasure that lies within. The necklace in the nutshell is made with glass beads on a gold plated wire strung on an elastic cord. The perfect gift for that special person in your life. When you purchase two-dozen nuts from our In a Nutshell Collection you receive a free display.

Earth and Sky
The Earth and Sky Collection combines showcase elements to symbolize the simple pleasures nature has to offer. This collection features a faceted Labradorite drop necklace, which contains a gorgeous, semi-transparent stone. With an alluring palette of greens and blues, the Earth and Sky Collection is made up of glass and pearl beads, crystal rhinestones, brass beads, and Swarovski Crystals beautifully placed on hand-twisted gold plated wire.

Pomegranate Collection
An angelic, dreamy style. The Pomegranate Collection combines elements that make you feel as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside. The use of crystal rhinestones, brass and glass beads completed on gold plated wire make this collection of fairy-tale fashion. Select styles from this collection are designed with Swarovski Crystals. Accentuate your wardrobe with jewelry from the Pomegranate Collection.

Robin is very passionate about each piece that she designs. We have a trained staff of artists who share in my passion for the jewelry. I have developed my own technique for working with a wire, and while each piece has a delicate look and feel we use durable materials suitable for daily use. We hope one day, your jewelry will be an heirloom that can be shared with the ones you love. As some beads are made of nature and some are hand-made, the color and shape of the beads may vary slightly. Thank you for purchasing from Robin Goodfellow Designs.

Please stop by and visit us during the San Francisco International Gift Fair, August 4-7, 2012.

TOKYObay, San Francisco based fashion accessories brand led by talented Japanese and British design duo Dory Isaacs & Jun Kobayashi, launch the ‘Obi' collection. The traditional Japanese Sanada Obi, a tightly woven flat cord with a 400 year old history, is given a new direction being incorporated into a women's watch and bracelet line.

Created on traditional looms by a collective of Japanese artisans in Kyoto, the Obi cord technique featured in the TOKYObay collection uses tightly woven cotton thread to create durable thick straps lined with soft leather. TOKYObay retains the original colors and patterns on the customary ‘Obi' woven cord made using saturated color dyes. Originally used to wrap and fasten Samurai sword handles it was then used as decorative ribbon to secure kimonos and tea boxes. The braided Obi can take up to 1 month to weave by hand. TOKYObay brings these treasured historical fabrics to the West by creating an eye-catching line of watches and complimentary bracelets, perfect for layering together this Spring Summer.

Each ‘Obi' color combination compliments the simplistic gold finish watch-cases with seasonal colored faces including tangerine, pastels and raspberry red. The ‘Obi' watch and ‘Obi' bracelet, worn together, create a clean sophisticated stacking look that stands the test of time.

TOKYObay is a fashion accessories brand based in San Francisco and founded in 1991 by British born designer, Dory Isaacs and her partner Jun Kobayashi. The fusion of both the minimalist Japanese aesthetic and the retro British styling creates a unique range of watches, clocks and bags. The products available transcend the trends of each season, allowing the products to suit many individual tastes.
