I’m just going to put this out there, I  LOVE JOHN DERIAN!!!!  Now let me clarify, I love the stuff that John Derian designs and makes, although I have met John once in his NYC store, once is not enough to build a relationship, ANYWAY.

 John Derian is the designer of amazing plates, platters, paperweights and so, so much more.  His artistic method of choice is decoupage and the merchandise is handmade in his NYC studio.

I love to visit his store in the East Village area of New York when we are there, over the years I’ve purchased paperweights and trays but am always planning on buying one big piece, probably when we have a proper dining room.

 If you are in NYC you need to make his shop a definite destination to visit and check it out.

I’m always mad about a good oval plate.

Love these vintage looking gift tags, wouldn’t these be great on a plate of cookies for friends.

Make a point of visiting John Derian’s store in either NYC or Provincetown, MA.  If you can’t get to the east coast the website is great and very easy to shop. Enjoy!!!
