Bob’s Your Uncle sent a photo of their booth from the NYIGF last week, which was fun to look at – I spot melamine plates!
Founded in Boston by English couple Michele and Martin Yeeles, Bob’s Your Uncle is an old British expression meaning “Everything’s Fine”. Cute fact, huh? I guess that is how you always want to appear when working – calm, carefree, no worries. Beneath the surface though, you haven’t slept in days and you’re stressed to the max.
I love the folders marked “Limbo” and the cute honey bear melamine plates. Their kids placemats are cute because they’re packaged as tear off sheets and each one has a recipe on it written by a child (those are not new, but I like them just the same). If you’d like to shop for their products online, here’s a list of online stores for you to choose from.

The contemporary glass of the talented Caleb Simeon is undeniably gorgeous. After obtaining his BFA in glass blowing, and spending several years in Venice where he apprenticed with master glass sculptor Pino Signoretto, Caleb returned to California to create his own Italian-inspired glass to share with the world. Caleb isn’t in the business merely to please himself, he goes above and beyond by inviting Italian masters and international glass blowers to come together in his studio to train the next generation of glass artisans. That is dedication and passion at work. If you are interested in seeing Caleb Simeon glass, click here for store and gallery locations nearest to you. Locals: You can spot some pieces at Good on Charles Street.
This is Caleb at the NYIGF yesterday…
