National Stationery Show | New York 2013

Dorothy and I are back from the 2013 National Stationery Show and soon we are going to be bursting at the seams with new items to offer in the store!

For over 35 years, Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market has been known in Birmingham, Alabama for bringing new, innovative designs to the city. At the show, over 800 designers and manufacturers convene to exhibit the best, new product to retailers. Displayed is everything from invitations, social stationery, wedding accessories, specialty party supplies, writing instruments, and more items than you can shake a stick at!

This blog is certainly not long enough for us to be able to showcase all of the new items we’ll be receiving in the next month or so, but we couldn’t resist an opportunity to show off some of the merchandise now.

Belle and Union is a company relatively new to the market, and we are terribly excited to bring this fresh, sassy, and most importantly SOUTHERN line of greeting cards to Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market.


We will be featuring a number of their cards including {but not limited to}…

Proud as PunchBun in the Oven 01Mend FencesOver The HillRuffled Feathers 01

Each of these cards measure 5.5″ x 4.25″ (A2 size), are blank inside and are Letterpress.

The next new product we can’t get off of our minds will make the perfect gift for someone of any age. This company works with libraries and schools around the country collecting books that they are pulling from their circulation (everything from Dickens to Dr. Seuss!). The front and back cover of the books are then removed and repurposed into writing journals.


Size will vary depending on the book, and we have collections on the way including children’s books, travel, the classics, and of course, florals!

The kids might be getting out for summer this week, but it is never too early to look for their next adorable lunchbox. Are the kids planning lots of sleepovers this summer? This new line will be perfect for the little guy or girl in your life.

We also have every intention of using these adorable cases as the container for get well baskets and even new babies!

Along with receiving the newest albums from stationery companies such as William Arthur, Crane & Co., Embossed Graphics, and Printswell, we will also be receiving new lines of stationery from Vera Wang, Checkerboard, and Mindy Windy!



Don’t forget, any bride that uses Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market for their wedding flowers will receive 10% off their stationery orders. This offer is good for any personalized product such as invitations, thank you notes, koozies, favor boxes, and more. (You should probably tell everyone you know 😉
