Easter is all things chicks and rabbits and we're always researching our vintage collection and others to see what might inspire the future.
Spring shapes may change slightly but the classic bunny, standing or sitting is always in style.
We found this gorgeous, vintage Czech chocolate catalog on Ebay and are totally pining for the stunning Spring foil wrapped chocolate assortment.
The catalog doesn't have a date but I would put in at 1930s. Enjoy and happy Spring!

The show is always a great opportunity for us to roam and discover. I encountered Japanese Candy Cheese that tasted a little like subtly sweetened Velveeta.
Always interested in nostalgia, I was happy that Brown and Haley re-issued their classic pink tin. Love Almond Roca.
Cactus Candy is an awesome Pate De Fruit made using the Prickly Pear and featuring amazing, retro anthropomorphic road trip packaging.
The Dick Taylor booth looked great and showcased cacao ingredients.
Salty Road has ventured into Chocolate. I did not get a chance to sample but I am sure I will discover again here in New York.
Lastly, no San Francisco visit would be complete without a trip to Buy Rite. I painted a little postcard for myself to take home so I wouldn't have to leave my heart there.

Maillard was also the name of a famous New York Confectionery company. I have included a Maillard Sweet Chocolate wrapper from my collection here. Happy New Year!
