New Season, New Gifts: Report from ‘Shoppe Object’ Summer 2023 Market

Another season, another reason for shop owners and gift buyers from around the country to gather in New York City’s Lower East Side for the 2023 Summer edition of Shoppe Object, the ever growing trade show for discovering new indie brands and getting inspired for the season ahead.

The show runs for 3 days (August 13-15) and is hosted on Pier 36 in Downtown Manhattan with an added pop-up Pavilion presenting over 500 carefully selected brands (brand directory + floor plan).

I walked the aisles to meet with makers and pick some of my favorite new brands and gifts.
