Hispanic holiday ornament collection will be featured for the first time at the San Francisco International Gift Fair® July 26-29, 2008.

CasaQ, a San Jose-based Hispanic lifestyle company, will debut its exclusive Latin-themed ornament collection at the San Francisco International Gift Fair at the Moscone Convention Center from July 26-29, 2008.

Less than 8 months ago, first-time ornament designer Darlene Tenes created two hand-painted glass ornaments: "Pancho Claus," a Santa riding on a piñata and "Sancho Snowman," a guitar-toting snowman wearing a poncho and sombrero.

These premier glass creations got off to a quick start when the 2007 Latin GRAMMY Awards called and asked for them to be featured in their official celebrity gift baskets and have since received much press because of their fun and festive designs. They have been given as gifts at numerous celebrity driven events such as People en Español's Christmas Party, CBS' A Home for the Holidays TV Special and Andy Roddick's Poker Tournament.

"We are excited CasaQ has decided to debut their impressive line of products at the San Francisco International Gift Fair", said Aubin Wilson, show manager, "Buyers love coming to this market because of the fresh, exciting new products that they can't find anywhere else and CasaQ is a great example of this."

The CasaQ Ornament Collection includes exclusive designs such as the Virgin de Guadalupe, La Catrina, El Sombrero, La Piñata, and many more symbolic treasures that reflect the Hispanic culture. The collection was chosen out of 1200 exhibitors to be shown in the Distinctive Line division, a juried division representing a select group of the best and most unique products at the show.
