IT’S A TALE AS OLD AS 2013. That’s when we first made our dream a reality, and launched Easy, Tiger out into the world. But in a move that’s classic ‘us,’ we didn’t do it the normal way. Naturally, we started with cigarette machines. Old, gross ones, to be specific. We saved a few from the scrap heap, refinished them by hand, and used them to sell our first greeting cards in coffee shops around Kansas City.

That was just beginning though. I mean, why should greeting cards have all the fun? We soon realized that we couldn’t find well-designed, skillfully crafted items that expressed who we are…witty, clever, and obviously not full of ourselves at all. So, we started making them. Before we knew it, Easy, Tiger had grown into the full-fledged, instantly recognizable gift brand that it is today.

We firmly believe that there’s a world between fine china and bobble head dolls…that products can have personality, without becoming roadside souvenirs. That’s where you’ll find Easy, Tiger. So, while we don’t take ourselves too seriously, we are achingly passionate about good design, top –shelf materials, and expert craftsmanship. Like, to the point of being annoying… just ask our co-workers.

Our 2019 line is bigger than ever, as we poured our blood, sweat, and tears (not literally, that’s gross) into fresh stationery, pet, and home decor items. In fact, we could list all of the categories we’ve grown this year (spoiler alert: there’s a lot), but we’d rather let our products do the talking. They do it better. EASY, TIGER. PRODUCTS PROUDLY DESIGNED IN KANSAS CITY, MO. WAVE WHEN YOU FLY OVER.

All this great product needs a great sales team – and that’s why Floor 9 is ecstatic to be partnering exclusively with OneCoast for the independent specialty market. Together, we’ll make 2019 our best year yet!

Windows | Reminiscent of gothic architecture these signs come in the shape of an arched window. The beauty is in the details of the ornate mullions and shadowing they create. Clean, painted surfaces and edging paired with inspirational sentiments and carving make for a visually-distinct piece.

Banner Art | Homes are filled with a variety of textures – ranging from hardwoods often found in dining tables and cabinetry, to soft, textiles found in upholstered furniture and bedding. This category combines both formats by printing typographical word art on canvas and displaying between two lightly stained wood sticks.

Mini Puzzle Pieces | This creative and fun wall décor replicates the look and feel of an actual puzzle. Available in a number of layouts and designs these pieces feature inspirational sentiments, allowing you to tell your story using plaques and photo frames. Each piece is connectable and equipped with pocket mounts for easy hanging.

Shapes| Getting in shape has never been easier! Using popular icons such as houses, trucks, hearts, and even critters – this collection is all in the details. Some of the more elaborate shapes even feature carved out windows and accents. Each piece features a topical sentiment, complementing the shape and delivering outside-the-box inspiration.

Charms| The smallest acts can often have the largest impact. The same could be said about this category where short, often quirky sayings are applied to fun, color-filled shapes. These charms are designed to make you smile, and serve as the perfect gift for someone in time of need, or simply to show appreciation.

Cedar Coasters |Protecting furniture has become an artform! These coasters are cut from rough-sawn cedar logs, giving them a rustic look and feel. Sentiments, florals, and embellishments are then added to each; the pairing of art with the authenticity of the wood makes each piece one-of-a-kind.


At Studio M, we marry innovative design with beautiful artwork to create remarkable gifts and décor. We strive to bring you the best designs in the industry and are always creating something new. This season, we’re introducing almost 20 completely new collections with products ranging from fashion accessories and wall art to decorative bells and sun catchers.

Our three spunky new gift lines, Garden Dirt, Plant Lady and Bird Nerd, were created to make you laugh. Trinket dishes, coffee mugs, aprons, and more feature sassy quips and trendy typography that make these items great for gifting.

The result of a partnership with Colorado artist Cherish Flieder, Elements is a new collection of nature-inspired, fashion-forward gifts and accessories. From canvas tote bags to lightweight scarves, each item features Cherish’s artistic interpretation of one of the classic elements – earth, water, fire, air, and cosmos. Elements was designed to empower women through the beauty and wisdom of nature.

Susan Winget’s new line of collectible, handcrafted wall art is a must-have. Inspired by the seasons of life, the vintage-like pinewood blocks feature special sentiments and elements from Susan’s memories of growing up on her family’s 100-year-old farm.

As consumers become increasingly conscious of the environment, the birding category continues to flourish. In January, we’re launching three new collections with products for avid bird-watchers, those who appreciate the symbolism of songbirds, and everyone in between. Keep an eye out for these new lines – Field Guide, SunSeekers, and Bird Song – as well as new birdhouses, bird baths, and birdhouse poles!

After the tremendous response to the launch of our Wings of Whimsy garden angels and ornaments, we’re introducing new 8” angel figurines. Like the other angels in the line, each figurine has a unique message and was modeled after original hand-carvings by Laura Benge.

Our Heart Notes collection was just released in August and we’re already adding more bells to this successful line. Featuring sentiments and colors specific to each month of the year, the new bells make perfect birthday gifts!

We’re launching a new line of wall hangings this season! Beautiful artwork is printed on woven fabric with a burlap look, creating a warm, natural style. The wall hangings’ neutral tones allow them to fit in seamlessly with existing décor, or coordinating designs can be shown together for a more cohesive statement.

Our Art Pots have gotten a makeover! The new pots are made from durable, lightweight polypropylene and have artwork around their entire surface – now including the rim! These adorable little pots are the perfect gift item for teachers, Mother’s Day, or just to say thank you. Drop in a plant and tie a bow around the rim or fill with a few small items, and you’ve created an easy gift-to-go.


The Aromatic Collection | The clean, classic look of Votivo is offered in meticulously crafted fragrances and seven product categories. A culmination of care and commitment to detail is evident in each hand-wrapped candle and pressed seal.

Aromatic Large Candle, When Average Just Won’t Do | Votivo adds a supersized option to the Aromatic Collection via the Aromatic Large Candle. Now the top eight selling fragrances can be enjoyed longer in this large style. Rest assured the cherished fragrances and wax formulation will remain the same with this new enhanced version.

Desert Cactus | Embark on a sensory journey way out west where earthen tones glow from sunbaked terrain. An oasis of tart currant, apple and sweet rhubarb sifted over succulent watermelon, tulip and wild cyclamen. Sultry musk and sandalwood issue a wave of trailblazing heat.


2019 marks the 40th anniversary of Woodstock Chimes®, the original musically tuned, high quality windchimes. Created in 1979 by GRAMMY® Award-winning musician Garry Kvistad, Woodstock Chimes are tuned to beautiful melodies and scales from around the world.

While chimes are the heart of our business, we are also the source for the award-winning Woodstock Music Collection®, with fun and colorful instruments for children of all ages, and the popular Woodstock Rainbow Makers™, stunning crystal suncatchers that do for light what our chimes do for sound™.

In the late summer of 2018, to commemorate the 15th anniversary of our perpetual best-selling Amazing Grace Chimes, we had a midseason introduction of this line in bronze. They have been flying out the door, as retailers are excited to be able to offer a new version of this popular tuning.

In 2019 we will expand a number of other lines, plus we have lots of colorful and fun new styles:

New Styles:

  • Woodstock Rainforest Chime™ – Featuring a scarlet macaw decal on its windcatcher, this chime is tuned to notes from a ritual dance of a tribe that resides in the Amazon rainforest.
  • Woodstock Garden Chime™ – Butterfly – The deep blue tubes of this chime are silk-screened with butterflies, making it a fitting garden accessory.
  • Hockey Night Chime – Tuned to the opening notes of the theme song from the original CBC television show Hockey Night in Canada, this chime is sure to please sports-minded customers.
  • Illumination Solar Chime™ – Beautiful by day and magical by night, this chime features a solar light that comes on when the sun goes down, creating a wonderful ambiance in any outdoor living area.
  • Woodstock Lullaby Chime™ – What parent hasn’t hummed the peaceful melody of Brahms’ Lullaby to their child? This chime is tuned to notes from this famous melody and has the moon and stars silk-screened on its windcatcher.

Expanding Current Lines:

  • Woodstock Chakra Chime™ – Seven Stones, Large, Bronze – Bronze tubes and teak-finish wood make this addition to our large Seven Stones chimes a standout.
  • Woodstock Craftsman Chime™- Evergreen – This chime is larger than the black version, and it has lovely deep green tubes.

  • Woodstock Zenergy Chime™ – Amazing Grace – Tuned to notes from Amazing Grace, this is a playable six-note Zenergy Chime—it even comes with a songsheet!
  • Crystal Fantasy™ – we’ve added an Octopus design to complement our other coastal-themed Crystal Fantasies, and in a nod towards our rural customers, we have a number of new farm-themed Fantasies: Barn, Bee, Cow, Fox, Horse, Pig, Sheep and Tractor.
  • Asli Arts® Collection – we’re expanding our selection of the Half Coconut Bamboo Chime – Medium with styles that feature hand-carved, hand-painted animal windcatchers: Bear, Elephant, Sea Turtle and Tropical Fish. We also have brought the popular Tree of Life motif to a bamboo chime, and are adding new Diamond Capiz Chimes in four colors.

DEMDACO strives to lift the spirit in everything we do and it starts with our people.  Our product team has been developing some of the most inspired products we’ve ever brought to market.  Our categories include: home & entertaining, baby, fashion, holiday, the great outdoors (Big Sky Carvers), and Willow Tree.  We have increased our focus on hand-of-the-artist and ensured that each product we bring to market is made by hand.

In 2018, we are excited to introduce the Sharon Nowlan Collection in our home category.  We have been able to make fine artisan reproductions of her pebble wall art and the product fits in any home.  In entertaining our customers are experiencing the tremendous success of the Kitchen Boa.  The Kitchen Boa has surpassed expectations and we have so many more to introduce to the market.  Baby & Fashion introduced the Giving Collections with included the Giving Bear and the Giving Shawl.  We have received numerous letters speaking to how the Giving Collection has touched consumers’ lives.   We will continue offering new products within our Giving theme and hope it continues to make a positive impact.

In the summer we’ll introduce the Comfort Collection in Fashion.  A soft lounge apparel collection that will be perfect for stores focused on respite themes.  This is so important when a person needs a bit of relaxation in their everyday life.  Our baby category will offer our Mommy & Me Collection which enhances the bonds between mother and child.  As we go into the second half of 2018, DEMDACO will expand our Destinations business by offering more skus, more variety, and more customization options.  The successful Destinations line has allowed customers more choice for localized products and custom options in a wide variety of our product formats.

We are looking forward to introducing these new collections to our consumers and customers.  This has been a banner year for product at DEMDACO and we are just getting started.

 


Hello Fall

Willowbrook ushers in the arrival of a new season with three new fragrance designs that celebrate nature’s bounty, thankfulness and heartwarming whimsy.  Notes of warm spice and vanilla are interwoven throughout the formulations to leave a lasting impression of feel-good sentiment. Family-owned and operated, we pride ourselves on decades of experience in creating exceptional fragrances that are formulated in-house by our team of fragrance experts. Fresh Scents scented sachets are made in the USA and are truly a work of art, featuring original designs created by our in-house artists.

APPLE PICKIN’

Fresh, crisp and simply delightful, the fragrance captures a bountiful harvest of orchard apples bursting with sweetened juices and leafy greens. Cinnamon sprigs and smooth vanilla join in the mix to add a dollop of cozy warmth.

GRATEFUL, THANKFUL, BLESSED

Rich and warm with notes reminiscent of home sweet home, this fragrance is a reflection of pure gratitude. Orange citrus accords embrace with a convivial spirit, while a hearty blend of cinnamon and clove radiates trails of savory satisfaction.

PENGUINS

Equal parts merry and bright, Penguins effortlessly layers the hallmarks of the holidays in fragrance form through a cheery blend of sugared pear, cinnamon spice and creamy vanilla.

 


Painted Poppy

An inundation of vibrancy abounds in Painted Poppy’s attention-demanding aesthetic. Just as a bold red lip delivers an air of womanly confidence, Painted Poppy fiercely fuses mandarin and violet leaves with spirited freesia and red poppy.  A punchy duo of musk and amber passionately seals the fragrance in remarkable fashion. All encapsulated in a frenzy of electrifying colorations, Painted Poppy is destined to leave its mark on the home fragrance front.

Signature Scents in a Snap

Classic geometric detailing and a glossy white finish create a timeless look that is compatible with any décor. The fan is packaged in a coordinating box with batteries and a Classic Linen Fragrance Pod. The diffuser works in tandem with Greenleaf’s Fan Diffuser Fragrance Pods. After inserting the fragrance pod at the base of the diffuser, a simple press of a button will deliver immediate fragrance into the atmosphere. Once the button is pushed, it takes two to three minutes to fill a 200 square feet room. The fan will continue to release fragrance for 20 minutes. The diffuser will automatically stop operating at the end of the 20 minute cycle. For more fragrance, simply press the button again. One fragrance pod will last up to 25 hours.
