Cool branch and robot hanging thingies. (Not actual name, but works for me)

Tree branch wall hooks by Hangups and BaggageThis weekend at the NY International Gift Show, there was so much exciting new design that I can’t wait to share with you all! But one of the first new items that caught my eye was from Hangups and Baggage, a mom-run operation that’s giving boring old coatracks a run for their money.

The powder-coated steel ROBOT hangup
mounts to the wall, and gives your kids a fun place to hang jackets,
jewelry, hats and backpacks. More fun than any hooks I’ve ever seen.
Nice touch: It’s magnetic, so you can move that little bow from the neck
to the head, should your kids care about the gender of their robot
hooks. I know mine would.

ROBOT wall hanger by Hangups and BaggageIf you’re looking for something a little more elegant for your foyer, check out the Tree Branch hangup (above) which I’m absolutely coveting; or the more affordable, 24″ wallpaper hangup
which is inspired by vintage wallpaper motifs and perfect for scarves
and hats in the entryway, or for jewelry over your dresser. The hard
part will be not overloading it with stuff, so I can still see the
beauty underneath. –Liz

    I love the tree branch hangup. It is definitely cool. I’m moving into our first home and really want to decorate in a matter that inspires. When I saw this I thought, “Yes!! This would go perfect in our new living area.” When I saw the price my jaw dropped. I just started reading your blog which I think is fantastic…but perhaps I am in the wrong demographic in terms of economy. $350 for a coat rack? I can’t justify it on our budget.

    Thanks for reading Elba.

    It’s definitely DWR quality – it’s super heavy duty steel all sourced and made in the US, and made to last. But hey, we’re equal opportunity coveters. We love DIY projects, we love bargains, and sometimes we love beautiful splurgy things, especially when they’re made by parents supporting their families through their work.
