Max & BunNY at the New York Stationery Show 2015
Max and BunNY made its fifth appearance at the National New York Stationery show at the Javits Center. The National Stationery Show is in its 68th year, and is the world’s most comprehensive marketplace for greeting cards, stationery and related lifestyle products. No other trade fair in the U.S. matches the depth and caliber of stationery selection at the NSS—or serves as the launching pad for so many young, creative businesses each year.
This year it was called “signature mix” since it combined the Stationery Show, Gift>it, and C & LA (creative and lifestyle arts).
Becca’s Max & BunNY was booth number 1546 and we spent two days setting up (most of the second day was waiting for the can lights to be set up directed at her booth-you have to be there to direct the beam where you want it to shine on the booth.)
This was the first year (after four previous showings of Max & BunNY) Becca did not go with the foam core designed walls but finally had a more “permanent” booth constructed. She had it shipped from Richmond, VA in these massive crates which were also exclusively constructed for Max & BunNY.
The set up was done on Friday and Saturday.
Saturday was mostly waiting to get the can lights placed in proper position over the booth.
And then it’s SHOWTIME!!

And then it was time to take down.
We had no time for sight-seeing in New York City but I did snap this picture of the Empire State Building:
And once we had all the tear down completed we walked the High Line Park to Chelsea Market for dinner along the High Line Parkway. The High Line is a 1-mile (1.6 km) New York City linear park built on a 1.45-mile (2.33 km) section of the elevated former New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line, which runs along the lower west side of Manhattan; it has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway. A similar project in Paris, the 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) Promenade plantée, completed in 1993, was the inspiration for this project. The High Line currently runs from Gansevoort Street, three blocks below West 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District, to 30th Street, through the neighborhood of Chelsea to the West Side Yard, near the Javits Convention Center. Formerly the viaduct of the High Line went as far south as Spring Street just north of Canal Street, but the lower section was demolished in 1960.
Then it was goodbye to New York City
