Renowned Artist Kasha Ritter accidentally spilled glue on her yoga mat, and came up with a designer accessory that will revolutionize the multi-billion dollar handbag market. - AmericasMart Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market July 11-17, 2012

Fine Art + Yoga Mats = The Next Crocs Phenomenon!

Renowned Artist Kasha Ritter accidentally spilled glue on her yoga mat, and came up with a de-signer accessory that will revolutionize the multi-billion dollar handbag market.

January 11th, 2012, Atlanta, GA- Like every woman in America, renowned artist Kasha Ritter was faced with the challenge of ‘What matters most' when it comes to designer accessories: De-sign? Or functionality? It was an accident that caused her to come up with an ingenious solution, bringing together fine art and novel materials to create a signature bag that makes a powerful statement: Feel. Real. Art.

Women have been willing to sacrifice almost every practical consideration for fashion, but Ka-sha Ritter wants the 88.5 Million women who carry over 212 Million purses in America to know that now they can have their art and carry it too. Just like Crocs introduced a novel resin material which revolutionized the footwear industry, Ritter has introduced an ingenious solution that will revolutionize the handbag industry: yoga mats. "Women need a handbag to move with them, not against them," says Ritter. "By its very nature a yoga mat textile is flexible and water resistant, creating a beautiful designer accessory you don't have to worry about. They give you permission to own a designer accessory, Whoops included!"

Yoga mats are not only the material the bags are made of, they're the canvas for her accom-plished art. With her original pieces selling in major US galleries for thousands of dollars each, Ritter's one-of-a-kind talent for capturing spectacular moments in time with color, energy, mo-tion and expression is rare. Demand for her paintings exceeds her ability to produce, and her star is rising in the serious art world across America. Still, Kasha insists she is on a mission to bring extraordinary art into the ordinary everyday lives of women across America-a mission realized with the introduction of her new line of signature bags called Kasha Ritter.

The artwork collided with the yoga mat out of another personal belief that art mattered. "People are always coming up to me saying they wish they were creative, or wished they could be an art-ist and I felt that they forget they already are. I wanted to remind women they have an artist with-in, we all do." Her wildly enthusiastic customers agree, and demand for her one-of-a-kind bags has exceeded her ability to produce. "I get to carry my art wherever I go!" echoes Patricia Stepan of Colorado. "I just love that. I even named my bag." Donna Jamison of New Jersey agrees: "I dropped my purse in the snow and just laughed because I knew everything was safe and dry in-side. Cell phone included!" For even more proof that this is a phenomenon in the making, wom-en are collecting purses for the signature art pieces that adorn them: "I adore Kasha Ritter's car-ryalls! I delight in giving them as gifts, but my guiltiest pleasure is keeping them for myself. I now own six of these beauties and there is no end in sight," exclaims Susan J. Pearl of Illinois. Proof that Ritter's bags are the beginning of a huge new trend comes from retailers who can't keep her bags in the store because of demand. "These bags are fabulous! We sold them out in two weeks. They are a must for every store," says Beth Vages, owner of Tyler and Tallulah in Vineyard Haven, MA.

Introduced this past January at, AmericasMart Atlanta Gift Market, renowned artist Kasha Ritter incorporates her fine art and novel materials to create a signature bag that revolutionized the multi-billion dollar handbag market. Kasha Ritter will not be in attendance for the July 11-17, 2012 AmericasMart Atlanta Gift Market, for information or to place an order please visit Kasha Ritter online at kasharitterstore.com or kasharitter.com

bonsai box | dawn redwood forest
An ancient tree related to the coastal redwoods of California, Dawn redwood was once thought to be extinct. In the 1940's it was re-discovered growing in a remote region of central China. What makes the Dawn redwood truly special is that it is a deciduous coniferous tree. Meaning, in the autumn the light green foliage turns yellow, then bronze and finally, like leaves, drop off as a normal part of growth. The only other coniferous tree to do this is the Larch.

Robin Goodfellow Designs
- Hand-Crafted Jewelry designed by 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.

I am very passionate about each piece that I design. 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.

Woodstock Chimes, a leading manufacturer of musically-tuned windchimes, hits the right notes with its wedding-related products. See our complete collection at AmericasMart Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market July 11-17, 2012

Shokan, N.Y., April 24, 2012
- Woodstock Chimes, a leading manufacturer of musically-tuned windchimes, hits the right notes with its wedding-related products. The company's three wedding chimes, the Woodstock Royal Wedding Chime, the Woodstock Pachelbel Canon Chime and the Woodstock Wedding Chime, commemorate every newlyweds' special day in a unique way, reminding them of that occasion each time the wind blows by creating soft melodies. In addition, the affordable-priced Woodstock Rainbow Makers, with are ornamental crystal products featuring genuine Austrian crystals, make for the perfect favor for all wedding guests.

"Next to the birth of their children, a couple's wedding day is the most sacred moment they will share together," said Garry Kvistad, founder and owner of Woodstock Chimes. "Our wedding chimes were designed to honor this once-in-a-lifetime experience in the best way we know how, using the power of harmonious sound. These pieces are designed to remind a couple of their commitment to one another each time the chimes ring."

Each wedding chime was specifically designed and tuned to iconic melodies:

Woodstock Royal Wedding Chime. The Woodstock Royal Wedding Chime is tuned to a series of intervals known as ‘Westminster Quarters,' made famous by the clock tower bells at London's Westminster Palace. The decorative cast iron top and windcatcher are reminiscent of Victorian-era craftsmanship and lend a touch of "Old-World" charm. The top piece features five interlocking hearts, while the clapper's crystal accents sparkle like the ring he slipped on her finger when she said "yes."

Woodstock Pachelblel Canon Chime. Tuned to Johann Pachelbel's "Canon in D," a popular wedding processional, the Woodstock Pachelbel Canon Chime has a smaller chime within the main chime for fuller sound. It is available in both silver and bronze.

Woodstock Wedding Chime. Also tuned to the graceful melody of Pachelbel's "Canon in D," its understated design aesthetic is ideal for any décor.

Completing Woodstock's wedding-related products are its Woodstock Rainbow Makers. These ornamental crystal products feature genuine Austrian crystals. When struck by light rainbows reflect across the area in which they hang. With retail price points starting at less than $10 each, this line has proven itself a strong performer in the wedding market.

"The Rainbow Makers were a surprise performer for us in the wedding category and have proven to be very versatile," noted Kvistad. "The collection is so beautiful, and it has struck a chord with soon-to-be newlyweds looking for items outside of typical wedding favors. With a low price point, quality design, and variety of looks, we expect continued growth in this area."
