No official word
confirmation yet, but two several independent ICFF-attending sources is enough for me to pass it along believe it's true:
I hear that DWR is pulling the plug on DWRjax, their kids furnishings business/collection/catalogue. After barely seven months. [the launch announcement was Oct. 26th.]
Are pioneer indie retailers like Modern Seed, Baby Geared, and Sparkability [a DT advertiser, I should point out] already have the modern baby gear market locked up?
Is there an everything-must-go clearance sale in the works?
Does talented-yet-underappreciated design legend Gloria Caranica have a new gig lined up?
For the answers to these and any other questions that come to mind, stay tuned to Daddy Types.
[Now except for the writing I do for newspapers, magazines, and online, I'm no journalist, but I think that this is what is known in the typing biz as a scoop. Now if only it were frog-shaped, I could sell it at Target.]
