In Play Showroom, located at The California Market Center in downtown L.A., has earned a quality reputation as an experienced, trend-setting rep room. The spirited team at In Play enjoys plenty of laughter and good-natured fun, but is definitely there to “work it!” Owner Sandra Martinez shares all the praise and success with her team of hard-working sales reps. We recently met up with Sandra to discuss what makes her work like play, and most importantly, how she plays to win for herself, her associates and the manufacturers she represents with unsurpassed style.
“Making something from nothing” used to be just an expression that described someone’s creativity and ingenuity. In today’s age of environmental concerns and attention on “going green,” some businesses now literally make something from nothing, turning what most would consider trash into treasures. By reusing and re-purposing as much as possible, Shains, TerraCycle and Ecoist are a few companies that are turning the message of “tread lightly, use less and leave less” into innovative eco-business enterprises!

About three years ago, a trio of talented moms, Dina Kutinsky, Samanta Lieberman and Amy Multack, gave “peace” a chance by using the universally-recognized symbol as inspiration for their Peace-of brand. Offering one-pieces and tees for babies through tweens, the mod and punny pieces sport a twist on the ‘60s anti-war icon, in which the peace sign means both “piece” and “peace.” The symbol, first designed by the British nuclear disarmament movement, is now disarming kids’ wear with cute graphic statements, including “Master Peace”, “Peace of Work”, “Peace-ful”, “Peace of Cake” and “Inner Peace.”

Children are naturally open to art and love to express themselves by painting, drawing, and sculpting with clay. They are also fascinated and inspired by the creations of others. Displaying artwork with appealing colors and content can help develop children’s early appreciation of art, and make a house feel like home. The Giggle Guide® looks to the heart of art from several brands that specialize in creations designed to delight and capture children’s imaginations. Our gallery includes engaging works from J. Austin Ryan, Queen of the Trailer Park, Renditions by Reesa, and Green Frog Art.
