One Kings Lane to Receive REA Rising Star Award

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - The 60th annual Retailer Excellences Award during the New York International Gift Fair next month will honor One Kings Lane founder Susan Feldman as 2011's Rising Star.
     The awards are presented by HTT sister publication Gifts & Decorative Accessories and sponsored by the NYIGF.
     "One Kings Lane has introduced an important new web-based opportunity for our industry. This branded on-line platform enables vendors to move excess inventory quickly, efficiently and without disruption to established channels of retail distribution," said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF director and GLM senior vice president.
    During the ceremony, Gift For Life - the gift and home industry's charitable organization - will present its 2011 Industry Achievement Award to Michael Aram; and Gifts & Decorative Accessories will present a Lifetime Achievement Award to Su Hilty, who is retiring after a long career in the retailing and home furnishings industries.
      The REAs will be held Sunday, Aug. 14, from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City. Tickets, which cost $185 per person or $1850 for a table of 10, are available through vengel@
     NYIGF runs Saturday, August 13, through Thursday, August 18, 2011, at the Javits Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Piers 92 and 94 in New York.
