The Mayor’s Best of KBIS/IBS 2014. You will love # 5…

20140204_120513I’m still recovering from 6 days in Vegas and boy was it worth it!

The show had about 75,000 attendees, the aisles were packed with people and the line at Starbucks was never less than a 30 minute wait…

I can’t remember the last show that had this much energy and excitement surrounding it.

Vendors were showing new products, consumers were spending money and everyone seemed optimistic about the economy.

Here are 5 of my favorite items –

This shade of brass was all over the show floor – from faucets to handles.

Brass has gained momentum over the last year.  Women are wearing gold jewelry, watches and many leading designers are including brass on their products… How many Michael Kors bags does your wife own??

I really like it and think that we are going to see more of it.

I’m trying to convince my wife to buy me one for Valentine’s Day.  It’s basically a walk-in beer closet – with a TAP!

It was such a busy show I’m sure that I missed something…

  1. I love the glideware – wanna raise it up higher and use for purses.

    I also love the “Power in your Drawers” – took a video of the owner demonstrating it –

    • The Mayor of Hardware says:

      Glideware for purses is a great idea!

      Thanks for sharing that video!! Both are really cool products.
