BEST IN SHOW: ALICE SUPPLY CO. MAKES HIP HOUSEHOLD ITEMS

Racing through the aisles at the Gift Show, this bright booth stopped me in my tracks. Sure to be a Real Simple favorite, Alice Supply Co. takes ordinary utilitarian household objects and gives them aesthetic allure. Part Paul Smith part No Frills, this collection is will make cleaning a breeze. Fun Fact: The line is named after Alice, the Brady Bunch housekeeper!


THE BOOTH


Whistle while you work. Who ever thought you would crave a scrub brush pan? Now, you will.


THE GIRLS BEHIND ALICE SUPPLY CO.


Fun and energetic, this designing duo have an edgy surfer fashion background. They pooled their talents to fill a need in the market. Container Store, have you placed your order yet?!


THE WALL O' PRODUCT


Great displays at a show like this is key--a point not lost on these gals. A cool concept can seal the deal. Using crafty, white peg boards they showcased the product like it was in a hip garage. The colors pop next to the squeaky clean white everyday objects. There is something very Duchamp-ian going on here...


Plungers, hoses, brooms, dustpans, tool cases, buckets and scrub brushes bring clean to the scene. With the economy the way it is, people will want to keep their homes spotless and nice if a vacation is not in the future. Find out where to get your cool tools at Alice Supply Co.
