At the recent L.A. Mart Gift Show . . .

  • Warm, conservative styles fell by the wayside, making room for bright and bold colors and patterns in housewares and accesories . Fluorescent greens, oranges, reds and blues painted the showrooms, while heavy stripes established contrast.
  • The kids' market saw a twist to the traditional "blankie": stuffed animals with a blanket body in soft pastels.
  • Also seen: professional uniforms for kids (such as chef, racecar driver and police officer outfits) and Harley-Davidson accessories (the company celebrates its 100th anniversary in August).
