will love this wild handbag. Brushed rayon gives the look
of suede embroidered with flowers and juiced up with beads,
sequins and dangling coins. Somehow all the details work
together to make a bag that is both attractive and useful.

May was a very productive month for us here at the
Planet. I went to Thailand for a short 5 day trip, and when I got
back we received a big shipment from India.
We have added
styles of handbags from new suppliers. They build on the theme
of Indian origins, using rich fabrics and embellishments like embroidery
You can see all the new bags here.
We have also
restocked our chain
selection, which was quite depleted by the time I left for Thailand.

is upon us, and in honor of the summer parties about to unfold we
have added six
new star lamp designs. In addition, we have a big inventory
silk & bamboo lanterns. Later this month we'll be getting
a new shipment of Japanese paper lanterns in various styles.
There are also
a handful of new
jewelry designs from both India and from Thailand. We will be
adding more shell
jewelry as soon as the shipment clears customs. You can see
the new jewelry additions here.
We'll be adding
even more new jewelry items later next week, so be sure to check
back! Here is a link

any questions or special requests, please email

orders of individual designs.
and Fall Trends
just a couple of days away, but for many retailers it has already
arrived. The warming temperatures put customers in that summer frame
of mind long before the actual start of the season. With the end of
the school year upon us, many already have their eye
look for trends from spring to continue with a sultry attitude.
necklaces will still be strong with accents of lace
and crochet elements. Big links in chain,
big beads, leather cord, and organic materials like Shell,
are also strong. The funky looks of large ring shapes in both necklaces
and earrings, as well as subdued colors in jade green, pale pink
and and off white are what people want. Bold statement jewelry with
stones, shell and wood are also popular, with big bangles,
rings and gypsy influenced pieces continuing to be strong.
For purses and
bags, the hobo
shape is still predominant but in a variety of sizes and interpretations.
Moving forward into fall, the hobo will begin to lose some of its
cachet as shapes like satchels and covered frames gain in popularity.
For now though, look for styles with pom poms, lace, embellishments
and crochet details in rich colors-- trends that will continue into
fall. Customers want something functional and fun that will set
them apart from the crowd within the broad trends of the season.
or other fine detail will add a little "oomph" to that
strappy summer outfit. Jewel and spice tones are preferred over
brighter colors, to match the languid mood of the season. Think
New Orleans jazz on a hot July night. Flower themes, dimensional
looks and crochet
detail all have their place in this hot summer nights theme.
A richness in both texture and in color are what people crave right
The color palette
for Summer is one of understatement. As I mentioned earlier, subdued
tones beat out brights this time around. Seafoam green, pale periwinkle,
light sand and bleached yellow lend a hint of laziness to the serious
business of summer fun. Off whites are preferred over true white,
and now that Memorial Day is past it's time to turn on the lights!
