I always keep a sketchpad by my side, not just for ideas and drawings but also for suppliers. I have lost the count of times I have found a lovely product, only to forget the name of the supplier. I am not an impulsive buyer so I now keep a list of great products and their makers. One blog that is a great source of unique and creative childrens products is European kids blog. Here are a few of my favourites from European kids blog....
