Shoppe Object home and gift show has concluded its Winter 2024 edition, marking yet another milestone in its journey of growth. With an expanded footprint that included both Pier 36 and the newly added venue at Skylight at Essex Crossing, this year's show proved to be the largest yet, with over 700 curated brands for buyers to explore and discover, a 20% increase from 2023, according to a press release.

From its humble beginnings as a gathering of 100 brands in the iconic H&H Bagel factory, Shoppe Object has evolved into an event for buyers from around the world to discover products in home, giftware, books, paperware, jewelry and more. The addition of the Skylight at Essex Crossing venue added twice the space of Shoppe Object’s previous 2023 expansion at Pier 36, underscoring the show's commitment to providing the ultimate curated resource for taste-making merchants, influential editors and designers.

Among the standouts featured at this year's winter edition were the 150+ brands new to the show, including Abigail Ahern, SERAX, East Fork Pottery, Sabre Paris, Heller, Alain St. Joanis, Native Union and Missoni, with some marking their U.S. wholesale market debut at Shoppe Object. International exhibitors made up 30% of the exhibitors at the show, hailing from 25 countries around the world, the release states.

Andy Van den Berghe, Chief Commercial Officer at SERAX, commented, “As an international lifestyle brand participating in trade shows around the world, our first time at Shoppe Object was a success and a real added value, allowing us to connect with high-caliber customers. The energy brought by the show and its curated brand assortment truly stood out, and helped us fit in perfectly.”

"As first-timers, we were blown away by the response and the vendor community,” commented exhibitor Ha Nguyen, Director of Sales, East Fork Pottery. “So nice to meet East Fork fans and get to know customers well … A lot of people saw us on the Shoppe Object website in the Brand Directory and had been putting in wholesale orders with us via email before the show even started. For our product, it's so important to touch and feel too, so it makes a huge difference to be here in person."

Up next, Shoppe Object – High Point will return April 12-16, 2024, on the third floor of High Point’s Historic Market Square. The show will focus on home decor and furnishings. Additionally, Shoppe Object will be back in its two-venue home in New York City, Aug. 4-6, 2024. For more information, visit
