SHOPPE OBJECT New York Winter 2024 Show

I attended SHOPPE OBJECT New York the home and gift show that takes place biannually on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, on February 5th. I spent close to five hours meeting and speaking with some new and familiar brands.  The show ran from February 4-6th. This is my third time attending and first time writing it up. The SHOPPE OBJECT New York Winter 2024 Show expanded its footprint across two locations, the Skylight at Essex Crossing and Pier 36. The layout is well thought out. The Show debuted in New York in 2018 with 100 brands. Since then, the show has grown to host over 500+ brands. The SHOPPE OBJECT show runs simultaneously with NY NOW. I get asked, how do they compare? I would say that NY NOW is buttoned up, and SHOPPE OBJECT is buttoned down. Similar but sets a different vibe.

Trends that have continued since the pandemic are the ongoing presence of impressively high-quality passionate Female-Owned brands with many that launched during the pandemic with a focus specifically on Women’s Wellness, Divinities, Healing, and Spirituality with many incorporating CBD. With so many still working from home, scenting one’s home environment has increased with the soothing scent of candles and diffusers as a driving force.

NOPALERA was founded by CEO Sandra Velasquez, to elevate and celebrate Latin Culture with products that are inspired by the beauty and richness of Mexico. The bath and body collection is powered by Mexico’s Nopal cactus. The nopal cactus, an ancient symbol of Mexican culture, is also one of the most sustainable, nourishing, and resilient crops in the world. You can eat it, make textiles from it, and use it to hydrate your skin and hair. If you follow Shark Tank maybe you saw the 2023 Episode with Sandra pitching her brand last year (and valuing her brand; refusing two low ball offers from Kevin O’Leary and guest shark Daniel Lubetsky, adds Michelyn who saw the episode 12).

Many times the exhibitors are engaged with buyers and it’s not always possible to circle back in some cases, so, I will be back for the next show to discover the rest. One thing is for sure, I always leave inspired and impressed.
